Coconut Oil For Hair Conditioning Treatment – An Ideal Coconut Oil Hair Conditioning Mask
If you are looking for a natural way to smoothen, soften your hair or repair it from styling damage, we recommend that you try this coconut oil hair mask, which just consists of three hair friendly natural ingredients, namely, coconut oil, honey and apple cider vinegar. Both coconut oil and honey are well known for their moisturizing and restorative properties.
Coconut Oil : This great oil can really penetrate your hair shaft to the cortex and being rich in fats that are attracted to hair proteins, this oil cuts back protein loss in hair! Studies have found that coconut oil can penetrate up to 90%, followed by olive oil at 25%. No other natural oil can penetrate to this extent. Coconut oil also coats outer protective covering of the hair, thus helps to protect hair against heat, styling damage as well as frizz and flyaways. Doing this easy hair treatment improves scalp health, stimulates hair growth, and adds volume – leaving your hair softer, shinier and healthier, just after one treatment.
Honey : It’s a powerful humectant, meaning it draws moisture from the air. This is particularly good if your hair is excessively dry because of using flat irons or blow-drying or if you have a dry scalp.
Apple Cider Vinegar : It removes residues from the hair and also detangles the hair naturally.
You will need:
(i) Coconut oil: 2 tablespoon, extra virgin
(ii) Honey: 1 tablespoon, organic
(iii) Apple Cider Vinegar: 1 tablespoon, organic
You can vary the quantities depending upon how long or thick your hair is. Make concoction enough to cover your hair from the roots to the tips.
(i) Warm up the coconut oil to turn it into liquid form. And if it’s too cold in your home you might need to warm up the honey as well for a couple of seconds. Mix the two ingredients well in a small glass bowl and then add in apple cider vinegar – your Coconut Oil Hair Conditioner is ready.
(ii) Stir the mixture again just before applying and then apply the mask into your hair.
(iii) Section your hair into four equal parts, then part your hair in half-inch sections. Apply the coconut oil hair mask starting at the roots and moving up to the ends of your hair. Once you are done with a section, massage your hair using your fingertips to get the ingredients really deep inside. Pile your hair into a bun and allow the mask to sit on your hair for 15-20 minutes. Wash your hair with a shampoo of your choice. Remember you will not need to use an additional conditioner.
Natural Beauty Tip: If your hair is super dry, you should leave the mask on longer time – for more than an hour. If you like you may wrap your hair in a towel or use a shower cap. Wash and style your hair as usual.
Coconut Oil Conditioner For Hair
You can use even coconut oil all alone for conditioning your hair. Take about 2 tablespoons of the oil (less or more depending upon volume of your hair). If it’s in solid form, warm it up so that it turns liquid, . Apply the oil to your hair by messaging it in gently. Pay special attention to your ends. It is very nourishing to your roots, and scalp. If you have dry scalp then message it into your scalp also. When you are done put your hair up in a tight bun. For best results, sleep with the oil in your hair. Just make sure you put on an old pillowcase or use a towel over your pillowcase. Take a warm shower in the morning. Put a shower cap on and wait till the very end of the shower to wash your hair. The shower cap will warm up your hair for more penetration of the oil. When you wash your hair, try to wash it good. You might want to wash your scalp. You will notice a difference even after one treatment. Try and do this procedure a few times a week. You will have softer, shinier, healthier hair. You will also notice less frizz, and your curls will hold together better.
Natural Beauty Tip: I have really long hair. One thing that really helps keep my hair from getting dry is only shampooing the top of my head. When I rinse out the shampoo it goes through the rest of my hair and cleans it. It really makes a difference.
