Have you ever seen pic’s of the women from the Polynesian Islands, they have long silky beautiful hair. Yes they eat a lot of coconuts but they also apply coconut oil to their hair.
Once you start using coconut oil or coconut butter as some people call it, you’ll no doubt want to get rid of all the expensive conditioners and creams and mousses you’re using for your hair. Coconut oil will give your hair a lot of tons of body, coconut oil will protect it and control breakage of your hair, and this will give you less hair thinning. Of course, many hair stylists who know about it want to keep this secret for themselves. Why because they make a ton of profit from selling hair conditioners,. But the word is slowly getting out.
Here’s how to use coconut oil as a hair conditioner, I like to warm it up a little bit and then simply massage it into my hair right before bedtime. You can hold some in your hands for a few moments if you don’t have the means or the time to heat it. Coconut oil will melt fast. You only need about two teaspoons or so.
In the morning just shower and wash it right out. I use organic virgin coconut oil because it is the highest quality. When you buy coconut oil online or in a whole foods store, make sure it hasn’t been refined, bleached and deodorized. You want the unrefined kind. One way to tell if it is unrefined is to make sure it smells like coconuts, makes sence right?
For a great salon-type hair treatment you can apply the coconut oil, next put on a shower cap, and then wash it out in about an hour. If you have a dandruff problem apply one to two teaspoons to your scalp and gently massage it in. Your shampoo may be causing your dandruff so you may want to find a shampoo with fewer chemicals.
You can also use coconut oil for a shampoo but only use a little bit and mix with your regular shampoo in the palm of your hand. You can also put a tiny bit on your hair using your fingertips after you style it.
This should give you a good idea how to use coconut oil on your hair as a hair conditioner or a shampoo. You’ll save a lot of money and have the healthiest, silkiest shiniest hair you can imagine. It will look thicker too because you will be losing less hair.
