Fashions and trends may come and go but without a doubt, the desire for hair that exudes health, is seriously shiny and looks just-styled flawless is a look that never goes out of style. And with a never-ending supply of new and innovative products appearing on the shelves on an almost daily basis, it is hard to believe the hype.
Well luckily we live in an era where using 100% natural products is a preferred, if not always wholly achievable, choice and as we remain in an economic climate left reeling from the recent recession, considering the affordability of our beauty choices is something the majority of us can’t avoid.
The usage of natural coconut oil as a hair conditioner is a long-proven method of restoring hair to its most beautiful best. But user beware, as doing it the right way brings about superior results, and as with all hair products, there is no guarantee of catwalk-worthy tresses day one. Be prepared to adjust the amount you use for you and you only as this really is a hair treatment that you can truly personalise for your own unique needs
With coconut oil being, well, an oil, it goes without saying that using even a little too much can produce greasy looking hair and that’s not a good look. For best results, avoid the roots and use sparingly to start, running through to the ends to help in the repair of any split ends, then covering in a warm towel for a period of at least 1 hour but better still 2. Rinse with warm water and leave to dry naturally to ensure the added moisture is locked in.
Can’t be bothered with the effort? The good news is that drinking coconut water or ingesting coconut oil can also help to improve the condition of the hair when used over a sustained period of time.
