My Mother-In-Law told me about the benefits of Coconut Oil awhile ago & I must say, I’m glad she shared this with me. I have really liked it ever since I started using it. There are so many things you can use it for, but for this post I’m going to focus on using it as a conditioner. I buy it in the solid form & this is the kind I’ve been using lately- Coconut Oil
It’s really quick & easy:
- I put about a teaspoon into my hands & let it melt (it melts when its heated so it will become a liquid right in your hand)
- Then I run through the ends of my hair, while it’s dry.
- I leave it in for around20 minutes
- Then shampoo and condition with my regular conditioner as usual.
Now, I will say that my hair is fine, so I only apply a little on the ends & that has worked out great for my hair type. That being said, I have friends with thicker, coarser hair that have used this as an overnight conditioner and they’ve really liked it. Same technique, just leave in overnight and cover with a shower cap or hair wrap & shampoo out in the morning.
I like this because it conditions well, it’s inexpensive & while its working, you smell like a pina colada :)
All together now….If you like Pina Coladas……
