Coconut Oil Hair Treatment: A Must!

A friend of mine forwarded me a blog post about how to help your hair grow and I’ve started taking some of the advice.  Unfortunately, I had a terrible hair experience almost a year ago that left me with a ton of breakage, the need to cut much of my hair, and dye it dark to help protect it.  One of the tips was to give myself a scalp massage a couple times a week with coconut oil.  I figured why not give it a shot…..after all, if you google ‘coconut oil uses’ you’ll find that you should pretty much be slathering the stuff all over your body, as well as ingesting it.

I found some at Trader Joe’s for cheap.  A jar is only $5.99 and seems that it is going to last a while.   You can find coconut oil online or various grocery and health stores.  I worked it into my scalp; giving myself a massage for about 5 minutes and then rubbed it into all of my hair.  It’s somewhat the consistency of petroleum jelly, so I would rub it into my hands first to ‘melt’ it and make it easier to spread throughout.   I left the oil in for over an hour and then showered.  I shampooed, conditioned, and styled my hair as normal.

This product works!  My hair has been so soft and manageable for the last week.  I’m going to do it again tomorrow and figure I’ll do a coconut oil treatment about once a week forever!  It is an easy, at-home, inexpensive way to help heal damaged ends and moisturize those locks.

  1. Thanks Kathie! Trader Joe’s was on my list of places I needed to hit up over the weekend and this made it’s way into the basket courtesy of your advice. I used it last night and my hair felt today like i had just had it cut and colored and straight out of a salon because it was so soft, shiney and healthy.
    Thanks for the tip!

  2. thank you for the recommendation, I also like argan oil which is very good for hair too, I use the one from pro naturals, it helps me to have soft and healthy hair. :)
