Coconut oil is definitely a product that can do miracles when it comes to your hair. Dry and brittle hair is a problem for many women, especially in the summer when the heat, the sun and salt water dry out your hair even more. That is why it needs a refreshing, moisturizing treatment to make it healthier, softer and prevent split ends.
In moments like this the best thing to do is to make the treatments yourself. Store-bought hair products are full of chemicals and you can’t be sure how much they help your hair and how much the harm it. My advice is to use different oils like coconut or argane oil weekly not in your hair routine, but in you face routine, too. And if you’re one of those people who tend to forget to use some products, just add a couple of drops of the oil that you want in your products and you’re done. Now, on to the hair treatment:
What you need to do is take some of the coconut oil (the quantity depends on how thick and long your hair is, of course) and rub it into your hair: both your roots and lengths. Then clip it and wrap nylon around it or simply put a shower cap on. Heat it up using a blow dryer for a few minutes. Leave it on your hair for as long as possible: minimum half an hour, so that the oil can go into the hair and bind with the protein. Then wash it out with shampoo and condition as usual.
If you do this treatment several times, maybe once a week, you will notice a difference. Coconut oil is especially helpful on chemically treated hair and if you use a lot of heat on it. And if you want to make the effect even bigger, stop using chemicals and hair tools for the time that you’re using the coconut oil treatment.This way your hair will rest from all the damage that these products do to her and will look more revived and healthy.
