Have a healthy hair by using coconut oil. Here’s how:
Have you noticed how more and more women use coconut oil on a daily basis?
Everywhere, really. In cooking, in the daily care of the skin and it deserves its spot in the top of the list when it comes to natural well being. It started to become a huge part of women’s lives, by eating, using it for the lips or for the hair and skin. Especially for hair, since it helps in moisturize and condition, and it helps it grow healthy. These 2 are the most commonly used methods to take care of the hair.
Use coconut oil to condition your hair
The coconut oil gets to hair better because of its fatty acids, and the whole process is faster than other normal conditioners. It helps in repairing the split ends and in moisturizing the scalp. The first thing you need to do is manage your time – the longer you leave this treatment on your hair, the better.
Wash your hair normally and then let it dry for as long as it takes for you to prepare the next step. For the next step, you need a comp (hair pick works, too), a shower cap (or a small towel to wrap your hair) and 2 bowls of different sizes (keep in mind that one should fit in the other). Let’s not forget the jar of coconut oil.
Now you need to take a small amount of coconut oil and put it in the smaller bowl. Put the smaller bowl in the bigger one. The bigger one needs to be filled with hot water, and the smaller bowl will be partially covered in water, but not to float or the water to get inside of the smaller bowl. After the coconut oil is melted, get some on your fingers and massage your hair, then use the comb. After applying the oil, wrap your hairs in the shower cap or the towel and stay like that for 30 minutes or longer. Then wash your hair again to remove the oil. If you’d like to give it more shine, you can apply a small amount of oil again, and then style it as you usually do.
Use it as a daily detangler
This is for those who have long or curly hair. Tangles can be a pain in the ass. The answer is, of course, coconut oil for hair. It won’t leave any marks or damage to your tresses. Do these next few steps before brushing your hair.
Get a hairbrush or a comb, get the two bowls with different sizes and your jar of virgin coconut oil. Put a small amount of the coconut oil in the smaller bowl and put it in the larger bowl, and fill the larger bowl with water, just enough to not float. Also, be careful, so the water won’t get into the smaller bowl. The coconut oil should melt in no time. After it melted, massage the ends of your hair and go toward the roots. Take care of the tangles with the comb. After this, wait for a bit then brush it and style as you usually do. You don’t have to wash it again.
