Is your hair looking a bit worse for wear? After all those months of cold, snow, rain and wind no wonder we all hide it by wearing top-knots on repeat.
Each year, around the end of February, I hit a low point, which is my usual cue to start nourishing my rather poorly locks with a weekly coconut oil hair treatment. It’s the simplest, cheapest, all natural and most effective way to restore your hair’s natural shine. Don't believe me? Try is yourself:)
The reason coconut oil is so good for locks is because it has this ability to penetrate through the outer layer of your hair and condition from the inside, resulting in less protein loss in order to keep your hair healthy. So if you're tired of hiding your dry locks, here is a simple how-to that will make it all better:
Place a towel over your shoulders, let your hair down and apply a few handfuls of organic virgin coconut oil into your dry hair. Work it in from top to bottom, making sure every strand is covered including the ends. Next clip your hair into a bun and go about your day as usual. After 30 minutes wash out the coconut oil with your regular shampoo and rinse extra well. I usually shampoo twice and use a dash of grapeseed oil as conditioner. As soon as you are done, you will notice how much healthier and stronger your hair looks and feels. Ta dah!
