Towel dry hair after washing. Dispense 1-2 pumps in your palm. Apply into hair and scalp using palms and fingertips. Pay special attention to hair ends. OK to apply to dry hair on days you do not wash hair.
Apply 4 pumps into hair before washing. Cover with shower cap. Wrap hair with towel (to keep it warm) for 20-30 minutes. Wash hair as usual.
Apply to skin, elbows, legs, knees and heels, stretch marks (such as in after pregnancy) or to minor scars. Apply gently and thoroughly in until completely absorbed. Use morning and night or as often as needed.
Once per day, add a small amount to a damp cotton pad. Wipe nails and cuticles. Best after showering.
Camellia oil for beauty application must be free of chemicals and must contain the fullest possible amount of its natural anti-oxidants and nutrients.
Cold pressing, a labor-intensive mechanical process, ensures that the maximum possible amount of oil's character and nutritional content are preserved.
Cold pressing yields only about 20-30% of the seeds available oil. This is the reason for the relatively higher cost (and lower availability) of cold pressed high quality Camellia oil.
While Europe has rigorous standards in place for the terminology of cold pressing, similar phrases such as "cold filtered" have been used erroneously, especially in the U.S.. and Australia, often employed as a marketing technique. "Cold filtered" oils are not necessarily cold pressed. They could very well have been processed at high heat and using chemicals, and then filtered after being cooled.
Unrefined oils are ones that have not been subjected to high heat or chemicals for controlling color and scent. They maintain the maximum amount of oil's original character, and are untainted by chemicals.
Large manufacturers need to control the batch-to-batch differences in their supply chain to make the final product uniform. They employ various "refining" techniques for this purpose.
Refining allows control of color and scent of oil by using combination of chemical, filtration or heat processing.
Refined oils are less expensive to produce, since the process makes it possible to make the final product always uniform and look and feel the same, regardless of using different grade oils.
Refined oils lose important nutrients and antioxidants in the process. Depending on the type of the refining process, there is also the possibility that trace amount of chemicals remain in the finished oil.
Aya™ Japanese Camellia Hair and Body Oil is extracted by cold pressing in manual presses, without employing the use of heat, Hexane, alcohol or chemical refining.

I find this works better than argan oil. J

I've been using my camellia oil as an all-over body moisturizer because it is my right kind of thick and absorbent. I love how golden the oil is. It makes applying it feel more luxurious and relaxing. Contrary to what you'd expect from an oil, this body oil doesn't feel warm against the body at all.
I also find that using my camellia oil on the hair pre-braiding helps make my hair more manageable. It weighs my hair down, tames the frizz and adds a healthy shine to my sometimes overly dried out hair. Because Wawaza's Camella oil is organic, I don't fear using it on a daily basis. I didn't experience any allergic reaction to it and it didn't irritate my skin or scalp the slightest bit.

I received this as a sample. It has noticeably made a difference to my dry coarse hair. My hair is soft and shiny. Will definitely be buying this!!

The product exceeded my expectations. Excellent customer service. Replied to my inquiry right away. I will be ordering again. Just a note: Don't use a lot on your hair. A little goes a long way. I have shoulder length hair and for me about two drops is just great (I apply it after showering). My hair softer and noticeably bouncier.

I've been using this camellia oil for the last one month. On the first week I didn't see much difference, but from the second week I noticed that my hair is bouncier and has more volume. I don't know how it works, even my grey hair is a lot less noticeable (I'm 55). Is my grey hair disappearing?? How is that possible??
I started getting such great comments on my hair from friends and family including my husband who usually doesn't say much about my hair.
I had dry and dull looking hair before, but thanks to this Aya Camellia Oil, I enjoy brushing my hair every day. Feels so good when I run my fingers through my hair. It feels so smooth.
