There have been a lot of questions lately about what products people can buy for their hair that DOES NOT contain nuts. That is a hard thing to find since most of the natural hair products contain Shea butter or another nutty essential oil.

Let’s take a look at a list of  items that contain nuts that you may not think of:

Shea Butter & Kukui Oil

Of course, most of the “nut” oils come from an actual nut, but there are nutty oils that come from seeds which give a nutty aroma. This includes Argan  and Almond. Almonds are actually seeds that have a hull like nuts do.

There is a longer list of What you CAN use:

Argan

Almond

Tea Tree

Olive Oil

Grapeseed Oil

Aloe

Cactus

Okra

Jojoba

Rosemary

Lavendar

Mint

Carrot

Apple Cider Vinegar

Honey

Mayonaise

Cinnamon

Rosewater

Cocoa Butter

Almond Butter

If you’re in doubt, always ask a nutritionist at your local health food store for more information. Many products do not contain the complete list of ingredients either. When in great doubt, you can make your own products at home when you need them. The ingredients may last a while on the shelf until mixed together, but the items can be frozen or made in small batches as needed. It is an initial investment in ingredients, but since a little goes a long way, it is well worth it.
