For thousands of years beautiful women from around the world have been using a Coconut Oil hair treatment to keep their hair healthy and shiny. Today’s modern woman has brought this secret weapon out into the open. There are many different tips and tricks for using a Coconut Oil hair treatment… some you may already have tried or maybe you’ll learn a new trick or two!
Coconut Oil Hair Treatment
When you think of dry, dull, over processed hair what comes to mind first? Treatment! Dry, damaged hair needs lots of extra treatment. Incorporating all natural Coconut Oil into your daily hair care regimen will help keep your hair healthy and manageable, helping to prevent breakage. Organic Coconut Oil can be used as a hair mask which can be either left on for 30 minutes or slept in, too. Washing your hair in the morning you want to make sure that the Coconut Oil is thoroughly rinsed out, I suggest doing a double cleanse. Depending on how dry your hair actually is, you may or may not want to follow with your regular conditioner.A small amount of anti-oxidant rich Coconut Oil may also be added to your shampoo on a regular basis. Just scoop about a teaspoon into the palm of your hand before pouring out your shampoo and blend them together in a circular motion in the palm of your hand.
As a styling aide, pure Coconut Oil has multiple uses as a Coconut Oil Hair Treatment. Keep in mind, whenever/however you are using Coconut Oil in your hair, you are receiving a Coconut Oil Hair Treatment. A very small amount of Organic Coconut Oil can be applied to the ends of your hair before you begin to blow dry it. Again, depending on how dry your hair is, you may add a very small amount to the ends of your dried hair to help control frizzy ends. Do you have curly hair? Wavy hair? Super emollient Coconut Oil helps to tame & define curls and waves. Looking to create more volume to your wavy hair? Apply a small amount of Coconut Oil to your hair, follow with some mousse and then flip your head upside down and dry with a diffuser. A bit of hair spray scrunched into the hair also helps hold the waves or curl. Love the beach waves look? Again..apply a small amount to damp, towel dried hair, comb it through,twist tie it up into a bun and let it air dry. Release the bun, let your hair down and you will have soft, sexy beach waves. Keep in mind…all the while you are receiving a Coconut Oil Hair Treatment.
Are you a spa junkie? Next time you spend the day at your favorite spa, be sure to put some Organic Coconut Oil in your hair. Your day spent in the steam and heat will help the Coconut Oil penetrate into your hair shaft even better. Are you a spin freak? Before your next spin session, rub some Coconut Oil through your hair before you pull it up. The heat and sweat your body creates during your exercising will also help the Coconut Oil penetrate deeper. Are you a yogini? Run some Coconut Oil through your hair before class. We all love to multitask, right?
Wake up with bed head and it’s not a day you had planned on washing your hair? Take a very, very small amount of Coconut Oil and smooth it through the ends of your hair and style as usual. Guys love Coconut Oil in there hair, too. It can me mixed with any gel to help create a soft, pliable hold.
Have you picked up on a common caution with all suggested uses of a Coconut Hair Treatment? Be very careful with the amount applied. With the exception of applying it as a true treatment mask straight out of the jar to be left on for 30+ minutes, the Golden Rule of Coconut Oil uses applies… Less is More. If you ever feel as if you have accidentally applied too much and your hair appears too oily, I always suggest using a dry shampoo to help soak up some of the excess oil. A little heat from the blow drier, as well, you should be looking great!
