My mom in law brought me back this bottle of pure, virgin coconut oil from St. Lucia this weekend. I was so super excited because coconut oil is a great treatment, if not the best to protect and beautify hair and skin.
There are so many ways that you can use coconut oil on the hair. As a pre-wash conditioner, a deep conditioner, a hot oil treatment, or you can add a little to moisturizing routine for added moisture.
Last night, I used it as a a deep conditioner. Here's what I did:
I added a few tablespoons of the coconut oil to my regular conditioner. Wrapped my hair in a warm towel (a plastic bag can also be used). I allowed the oil to work into the hair for 30 minutes.
Today, my curls are moisturized and and soft. I Love it!
Btw, as you can see, the consistency varies with temperature. Since it's cold, it becomes more solid.
