Common Uses

A popular traditional use of kukui nut oil is to apply it to the hair in the form of a hair mask, mixing it in with shampoos or conditioners, or simply massaging it into the scalp and tips of the hair. The linoleic and linolenic fatty acids found in this oil are able to coat the hair, delivering key nutrients, moisturizing it, preventing breakage, and even improving the appearance and luster of hair.
