Coconut Oil Treatment

Today I am going to Blog about a simple Coconut Oil Treatment for your hair! I have really thick, really course, really dry, really long, really curly hair. If you couldn't already tell. So keeping my hair hydrated is really important to keep my hair healthy and looking great.

I swear, living in Hawaii for 2 years healed my hair. The humidity was so great. Even though it got pretty puffy, it was so much better than this dry Canadian air. So I knew I would need to do some kind of 'at home' treatment because, lets be honest, I don't have the time nor money to get my hair professionally treated. I saw this on Pinterest and I knew I had to try it. Coconut Oil is so good for so many reasons. 2 of the most important for hair is it's amazing hydrating and frizz control benefits! Which for my hair type, is exactly what I need.

(ps. I have the regular stuff you would buy at Costco. It's like $20 or something. Way more affordable than going to a salon!)

I usually do this treatment about twice a month. Like I said, this treatment is ridiculously simple, and the outcome is outstanding for me. So here is what you do:





Step 1: Comb or brush your hair. I prefer to do this treatment on my dry hair, but Im sure you can do it on wet or damp hair also.

Step 2: I like to heat my oil up in the microwave. It's easier to apply I find. Plus heat opens up your hair follicles. 

Step 3: Run Oil ALL over your hair. I personally lean over the bath tub and flip my hair over and take small sections at a time.

Step 4: Once hair is covered, throw your hair up in a poly tail or clip it up. You can also choose to put a bag over your head to avoid dripping and also to help keep the heat in. Sometimes I do this, sometimes not. I like to leave my oil in for 1-1.5 hours.

Step 5: Wash your hair. For me, it takes 2 washes to get it all out.

DONE!!
So simple right??

You can choose to style your hair like you normally would, but I like to let it air dry and continue to 'heal' without any heat or product.



And there you have it!! I LOVE the feeling it gives to my hair. So soft and it smells so good! It keeps it healthy and hydrated and keeps my curls in tact.

If you guys have 'At home' treatments that you think have been affective, I would LOVE to hear about them! I'm always looking for different ways to treat my hair :)



Have a great weekend! And happy Black Friday!

  1. I NEED to do this. Pregnancy did some crazy stuff to my hair. It's borderline impossible now. (Or should I say, impossible for me, a person who gets incredibly frustrated by even the idea of brushing my hair… haha)

    1. Do it! It's amazing. And I don't know about you, but my hair is falling out like no body's business. (it also happened when Ben was Rory's age. So sad to lose so much hair).
