Coconut oil for Hair care
To use coconut oil on your hair, heat a small cup of water, 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil into a small cup. Place the cup into the bowl so the coconut oil begins to melt; this will retain all of the nutrients, rather than cooking them off by heating it up in the microwave or in a traditional pan. Once the oil had dissolved completely, apply the oil to the hair by running your fingers through the strands of your hair and massaging the oil into the scalp.
Apply in this way
Be sure not to rub the oil over the clamps of the hair: try to get the oil on the area as much as possible. Running a comb through your hair once the oil is applied is the best way to ensure that it gets full coverage on as many strands of hair as possible. Depending on why you are using the oil on your hair, you can either focus on the roots of the hair or focus on the shafts of hair away from the sclap.
Once the oil is throughly mixed into your hair, you can pit a shower cap on, wrap your hair in a towel, or tie your hair up into a tight bun. You can leave the coconut oil in your hair for as along as you want to increase conditioning and moisturizing- the longer the better! When you are ready to take the oil out of your hair, shampoo throughly with warm water, as this should cut through the oil and easily remove it. For splits ends, take a smaller amount of coconut oil and apply it gently to the end of your hair; you dont’t necessarliy need to remove this as the amonut will be small will be small, but it can have noticeable effects!
