Coconut Oil can be used on your skin and hair by direct application.
For hair, you can simply apply a small amount of Coconut Oil between your hands and warm it up until liquid. Then, apply it to dry or damp hair from roots to ends (skip the roots if they’re oily). Apply the Coconut Oil one section at a time and comb through. Wrap your hair in a towel or shower cap or simply tie it up in a bun for at least 30 minutes and then follow with a gentle shampoo. Your hair will dry smoother, silkier, and shinier than ever before.
Below are a few other ways you can use Coconut Oil for your hair.
- As a pre-wash treatment: if you apply the Coconut Oil to your hair before it is wet, the oil will help protect your hair from absorbing too much water which will help maintain frizz.
- As an overnight mask: simply apply the Coconut Oil to your hair and wrap it in a shower cap overnight. This will help ensure that your hair has truly soaked in all of the moisture so that you wake up with super soft, shiny, and smooth hair.
- As a frizz-tamer: add small amounts of Coconut Oil to the ends of your hair to help reduce and maintain frizz.
- As a conditioner: you can substitute your regular conditioner with Coconut Oil in the shower for a more natural way of conditioning your hair.
For skin, simply rub a small amount of Coconut Oil between your hands and apply as you would a regular body or face cream.
