Dosage, Frequency & Durability

While the frequency of use and dosage can be highly dependent on your hair type and we suggest observing your hair’s reaction to Chebe Oil as mentioned above, there are some general recommendations that you might want to follow.


When it comes to frequency of use, we suggest applying Chebe Oil at most once a week on freshly washed hair. On average, we recommend 3-4 applications over the course of month for maximum effect.


Dosage-wise, we suggest about a quarter of a palm per single use - although do take into consideration that hair length and thickness are important factors which might influence the amount of product you might need to use. As long as you make sure to cover your strands from root to tip while avoiding the scalp, you can be as generous as you want.


Durability-wise, it is recommended to replenish our Chebe Oil once a month if you have the 4 oz version and every 2 months if you choose the 8 oz one, though once again, this may vary depending on the thickness and length of your hair.

Common mistakes

While using Chebe Oil regularly can help promote healthy hair growth and reduce breakage of afro-textured hair, it is important to remember that it should not be used more than once per week as overuse can irritate your strands or weaken the effect.


Additionally, it is important to use a mild shampoo and conditioner when rinsing out Chebe Oil from your hair as harsh products can strip away its beneficial properties. It is also important to note that Chebe products should not be applied directly to the scalp, but rather on the length of your hair.
