Ways to use Coconut Oil in Your Hair

Sharing is caring!

It is hot. Really hot. Here in Texas we are knocking down 100 degree days now in a steady streak! Although we are soaking up the sun my hair and skin are feeling the heat. I am sure you can relate!

The summer is such a busy time of year for us. Between birthdays, vacations, daily tasks, and prepping for back to school I have somewhat neglected myself. So I am working on getting myself back on track! With this summer heatwave in full swing down here in the south, I know my hair needs some TLC. If you think that you need a haircut, make sure to use quality tools like Barber Scissors Australia.

Did you know that coconut oil is an amazing, inexpensive hair remedy? Instead of buying a bunch of pricey products to make your hair feel better, invest in this. Coconut oil is not just for cooking. It has properties that are absolutely mind blowing.

Ways to use Coconut Oil in Your Hair

1. According to a useful resource, Coconut oil is perfect as a deep conditioner! It penetrates the hair faster than any other conditioner you could put on your hair! Seriously amazing! Use it as a leave-in treatment for taming those split ends and over processed hair. Just apply and comb through. So simple! Personally, I would leave it on over night (sleep in a shower cap) then shampoo in the morning.

2. If you are battling the tangles coconut oil can seriously provide a stress free remedy! With it being 100% natural and a wonderful organic product those tangles in your hair will not stand a chance. Apply some to hair without the worry of residue and combing will be a cinch!

3. You can use it on kids too! Have  little one with cradle cap? With the heat of summer and those sweaty little bodies the build up from cradle cap is a certainty! Use some coconut oil to moisturize even the driest areas on your little ones hair by slathering the whole head and use a soft bristle brush to work through it! Shampoo when done.

4. Tackle the woes of dandruff easily with coconut oil. Wash and condition just like normal and then apply the melted coconut oil directly to your scalp and leave overnight. Dandruff gone!

5. Believe it or not you can even use coconut oil to create faster hair growth. Shocking right? Coconut oil is full of vitamins and minerals. Use it after you shampoo and condition to help those hair follicles. Plus you can use it daily!
