Have you ever seen a spokeswoman or actress on television and been green with envy over her gorgeous, shiny hair? Have you been wondering how you can get hair just as healthy? Well, believe it or not, the answer may be in your kitchen.
You can skip those expensive spa hair treatments. Instead, give yourself a luxurious and moisturizing coconut oil hair treatment. It’ll save you money and you can do it in the comfort of your own home.
Bonus, unlike a lot of home treatments, this coconut oil hair treatment doesn’t require a lot of complicated equipment. All you’ll need is a jar of organic coconut oil, a plastic shower cap, an elastic band, a hair clip, and a blow dryer. Sounds easy enough, right?
100% natural coconut oil works best as a hair treatment because it’s free of silicons, alcohols, and other chemicals which may damage (ex. dry out) hair. In addition, those chemicals can irritate the sensitive skin of the scalp.
Ready to get started with your coconut oil hair treatment? Here’s what you need to do:
Step One: Based on your hair’s length and thickness, measure out 3 to 5 tablespoons of coconut oil into a microwave safe bowl. Don’t worry if you use too much coconut oil, it’ll only help add more moisture conditioning to your hair.
Step Two: Microwave your coconut oil hair treatment in the microwave for 30 seconds.
Step Three: Stir the mixture to help heat evenly.
Step Four: Microwave for an additional 30 seconds.
Step Five: Flip your head upside down and massage the coconut oil into your hair. Be sure to saturate your hair completely, focusing on any areas that are particularly dry or damaged.
Step Six: Twist your hair into a bun or ponytail and clip it in place.
Step Seven: Put the shower cap over your hair.
Step Eight: Leave the coconut oil hair treatment on for 30 minutes without heat or 15 minutes with heat. The heat is intended to open the cuticle of each strand of hair so the coconut oil can penetrate the core faster.
Step Nine: When time is up, wash your hair as you normally would. You may need to wash your hair twice in order to ensure that all of the coconut oil has rinsed out.
Congratulations, you’ve given yourself a coconut oil hair treatment! Nothing to it, right?
Please note, instead of microwaving the coconut oil, you can warm it by rubbing it in your hands or running hot water over the jar for a few seconds.
You’ll be amazed at how soft and shiny your hair is. People also reported improved manageability with less breakage, static, tangles and split ends. Plus, some even claimed that their hair “sheds” less and feels thicker after regular use of the coconut oil hair treatment.
If you love the results of your coconut oil hair treatment, consider incorporating coconut oil into your daily hair regimen by using a very small amount on the ends of your hair after showering as a detangler or as a daily moisturizer for very dry hair. If you suffer from dandruff, you can massage a small amount of coconut oil onto your scalp and allow it to sit for a minimum of 10 minutes to help treat this condition.
With the help of this simple coconut oil hair treatment you can have silver screen worthy gorgeous hair.
