Translation - I love coconut oil! So I am trying to brush up on my French as I want to study abroad during my last semester at school (Spring 2012).
I digress - so I wrote an article for The Coil Review about organic, extra virgin coconut oil, so I have been experimenting with it in food preparation (makes great scrambled eggs) as well as in my hair. Here are the ways I have used it for my hair thus far.
1. Pre-shower moisturizer - I've read that coconut oil is the only oil that your hair will absorb. Not sure if that's 100% true (meaning I'm not sure if there are other oils out there that will do the same). So before my shower I put a quarter-sized amount through my hair and took a steamy shower. My hair felt super soft after.
2. Deep conditioner - Last night I added coconut oil to the Redken Butter Treat conditioner I use. I put a plastic cap on and sat under the dryer for 25 minutes. I rinsed it out and then soaked my hair with KC Knot Today and detangled. I decided to do a dry twist out. Let me tell you. Blowing drying my hair (on the warm setting) was a dream. My hair was and still is amazingly soft!
heeeeeey! been waiting for you to post! How are you!! ok, coconut oil is FABULOUS! I heat mine up to liquify it, then put a liberal amount on my locs, wrap it up in a plastic bag and sit & relax for an hour or so. Then I use acv to clarify to make sure of no build up in my locs! I loooooove coconut oil!
My new oil I am trying and love too, is jamaican black castor oil! It is RANK, but I just mixed in my rosemary oil with it and it's good to go! People rave about it and how it thickens and grows hair so I'm giving it a try! It also absorbs into the hair rather quickly and is good for scalp massages too!
ok bye! oh and find me on twitter, i am back! @BsoFabulous
I like that you are going all natural. I may do the same this winter. Great tip on the coconut oil. I gonna give it a try this summer.
