I have dry hair. It’s brittle, the ends split way too fast after a haircut and don’t even get me started about frizz. I’ve tried a dozen or more deep conditioning treatments, and there were some I liked and some I didn’t. What seemed to be a recurring theme with the treatments I liked, however, was an uncomfortably large price tag.
I read online somewhere that coconut oil does wonders for hair, so I decided to give it a try. Well, I’m really pleased! After one 30 minute treatment my hair is softer, shinier, and the ends appear to be in better shape. It’s also relatively cheap compared to other treatments! This is how it works:
Scoop a couple of spoonfuls of coconut oil into a ziplock bag. Coconut oil comes as a solid so it needs to be melted. Place the ziplock bag in warm water until the consistency becomes comparable to olive oil.
Wrap a towel around your shoulders for the application. No one likes oil on their clothes. Separate your layers into two parts by securing your upper layers at the top of your head.
Dip your fingers in the coconut oil and begin running your fingers through your bottom layers until completely coated. Let down your top layers and repeat.
Wrap your head in a towel and leave in for 20 to 30 minutes. Shampoo and Condition your hair as normal.
I was very impressed with the simplicity of this whole process. It was quick, easy, and it really worked! I’m actually having trouble keeping myself from constantly running my fingers through my hair. I think I will do this treatment once a week or maybe once every other week to keep my hair looking strong, shiny, and beautiful!
