DIY Hair Treatment That Really Works!

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

I have been using coconut oil as a treatment for my hair for about the past month, and yes, I can really tell a difference when I use it.  Recently, my hair stylist suggested using it to help combat my hair's natural tendency toward dryness in the winter.  It just so happens we already had some in the cupboard, so I went for it.  Read on for the details.



There are lots of pros to using coconut oil as a conditioning treatment for your hair.  It's super easy- no mixing or fussing with lots of ingredients.  Coconut oil actually smells good so you don't mind it sitting on your hair for a while.  And it's readily available from your local grocery store.  What's not to love?

I usually use it about once a week on a morning when I have a little extra time to let it sit on my hair and work for a while.  You simply scoop out a good handful of coconut oil from your jar and work it into dry hair.  I only use it from mid-shaft to the ends of my hair, so the roots don't get greasy.  Once you have it on, I would either finger comb it through or use a wide tooth comb to work it down to the ends.   I usually just let my hair hang loose, but that's completely up to you. If your hair is longer, you might want to pin it up out of your way while it's working it's magic, or you can tuck it under a shower cap. 

I let it sit on my hair for at least an hour, sometimes two, and then wash it out in the shower.  I start with a warm water rinse, and then follow with shampoo (repeat if necessary), and finish with a light conditioner.  That's it.  Super simple. And you should notice an immediate difference.  My hair is always so much softer, shinier, and more manageable after this treatment.  

So there you have it.  Do you have any other hair treatments that work well for you?  As always, leave your comments below.
