We are all dying to have beautiful, healthy hair right? Hair can feel brittle with the dry winter air. Plus, looking our best for the holiday parties can do some serious heat damage to our lovely locks!
I have a cure; a secret that I stumbled on this year!
I have been using coconut oil for my personal skin care since I was 16. You can use it for kids as a replacement for lotion! While I knew it was good for cooking and skin, I had no idea how GREAT it was for hair as well!
Coconut Oil Hair Treatment
In a desperate search to find a cure for my brittle hair, I came across a few articles recommending coconut oil for hair as a moisture treatment. As I dug deeper I found that coconut oil is the oil our hair can absorb better than any other. If you would like to read some great articles on the benefits of using coconut oil for hair, here are some of my favorites: essentious.com, miracle-of-coconut-oil.com ,and coconutoilhair.org. Coconut oil is meant to be used as a “Pre-Washing” Moisture Treatment. I will walk you through the simple steps for giving your hair that pure moisture it is thirsting for!
All you need is:
Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
Hair Dryer (optional)
How to Apply Coconut Oil for Hair Treatment
Scoop out a handful of organic virgin coconut oil. My hair is very thick and long so my scoop has to be extra big. The oil will begin to melt at the touch of your skin, so there is no need to heat the oil before application. It will melt as you massage it into your hair.
Cover your hair with a shower cap. You can choose to apply heat or not. Applying heat will open the cuticle of each strand so the coconut oil hair treatment can penetrate the core faster. Leave the coconut oil on your hair for at least 30 minutes without heat, or 15 minutes with heat. You can use a hair dryer to apply heat over the shower cap. I like to rig a little system so I can sit on the floor and read or play with my kids! If I am busy and need to do other things I will leave the oil on my hair without heat.
Once your time is up, wash and condition your hair as you normally would. You may need to wash your hair twice to rinse away all of the oil. I really focus on my roots and try to shampoo my ends as little as needed. Style your hair and you will be amazed at the results from this coconut oil moisture treatment.
