Coconut Oil Hair Treatment

If your hair is anything like mine, it can really take a hit from all the summer sun and chlorine. In order to soothe my dry strands, I searched for ways to moisturize my hair and bring back the shine in time for fall. With a little research and beauty blog browsing, I found that coconut oil is highly recommended for naturally (and inexpensively) treating sun-damaged locks.

I stopped by my local Publix to pick up some coconut oil - a beauty secret for your skin and hair! (Apparently, coconut oil can be used for cooking and baking, but in our case, it's being used for beauty purposes). For hair, coconut oil leaves it silky and smooth while also promoting hair growth and strength.

All we did was microwave a tablespoon or two of oil in 10 second intervals until it was all melted through. Then, we divided our hair up into sections and spread the oil from roots to tips, making sure all strands were covered. We left it in for about an hour and tied our hair back, to let the oil seep in and deep condition. Afterward, we just shampooed and conditioned our hair normally.

To increase the effectiveness of the oil, we also read that covering your hair with a shower cap and wrapping your hair with a hot towel works wonders. We'll be trying that next go round!

Have any of you tried coconut oil on your hair? We'd love to hear what you think!
