You will needHair
Coconut oil (virgin or refined)
MethodThe amount of oil will depend on your hair type – thick long curly hair obviously needs more than short fine hair. My hair is short and fine, and I use approx a tablespoon.
- Apply to dry hair and work through to tips, being sure to reach all of the hair.
- Massage scalp lightly.
- Apply shampoo (no need to wet hair first).
- Lather and rinse.
- Dry, set and style as usual.
Kelly- Interesting that you wet your hair first.. I'm curious as to where you read to do this..?
in general the success of any oil treatment depends on fatty acids - some hair prefer monounsaturated fats when others - polyunsaturated fats.
i always apply conditioner before shampoo on 'oiled' hair - it's easier to wash them because conditioner emulsify the oil:)
Your tip about conditioner on oiled hair is a good one. I've done this myself many times. :)
