I was using a hair straightener to style my hair for a long time which ended in my hair being damaged.
I’ve since stopped using the straightener and once per week I put coconut oil on my hair and now it’s beginning to get healthy and grow again.
My hair seems to be thicker after I use the coconut oil and does not leave it greasy like one would think (I have fine hair). It’s also shinier. Coconut oil has vitamins and other properties that are good for your hair. You can Google the properties of coconut oil for more information on the properties of it.
The way that I apply it is to put about a tablespoon into my hands and rub it between my hands (if it is solid, which it is here because it’s cold) to liquefy it. Then I massage it into my scalp and work it down to the ends of my hair. I’ll have to repeat this process a number of times until my hair has the oil all over it. Then I let is sit for a couple hours before shampooing. You can also let it sit overnight, but you’d need a towel over your hair to not get it all over your pillowcase.
Do you use coconut oil as a home remedy? Do you have hair care tips to share? Would love to hear your thoughts!
