My Relationship With Coconut Oil - Staple In My Regimen!

Sunday, May 15, 2016

My relationship with Coconut Oil has been a strange one! If I mix it with my deep conditioner - my hair is "oh so" soft yet strong for weeks. If I use it as a pre-shampoo treatment, my hair is rejoicing with praise. It's no surprise, my hair just loves it!

Now here is the tricky part!  If I use Coconut oil on my hair, and don't rinse it out i.e. sealant, my hair throws a tantrum! I'm talking about rough, stiff, dry hair. I have yet to figure out why it behaves this way...its okay though, that doesn't stop me from using this GEM! I just know how to use it to my benefit :)

I never miss my weekly dose of Coconut oil because it:
  • Prevents protein loss
  • Penetrates into the hair cortex
  • Preserves the hair cuticle from damage
  • Repairs the hair from the inside out
  • Strengthens and fortifies the hair
  • Prevents shedding
Coconut Oil is my staple! My relaxed hair loves it!!! Through consistent usage I've noticed increased strength, smoothness and fullness in my relaxed hair. I add about 1-2tsp to my deep conditioners and it does the trick!

How do you use Coconut oil in your hair regimen? What benefits have you noticed in your hair while using Coconut oil?
