Is coconut oil good for your hair?
Absolutely! If you are looking for a deep conditioning hair treatment, it doesn't get better than an all natural coconut oil hair mask.
There are many hair products out there that claim to be all natural but I promise you they cannot compare to the real thing. Raw coconut oil will leave your hair looking better than any of these other products, and it will deep condition and repair damaged hair.
There is an ingredient, however, that competes with the benefits of coconut oil, this ingredient is honey! The combination of raw honey and organic, virgin coconut oil is unbeatable when it comes to hair masks.
So, why honey and coconut oil hair treatment?
Coconut Hair Benefits
Honey Hair Benefits
Ingredients (for long hair - half the ingredients if your hair is short)
- 2 Tbsp Raw Honey
- 4 heaped Tbsps Cold Pressed, virgin organic Coconut Oil
- For an added boost you can use 10 drops of one of the following essential oils:
Add your coconut oil to a stove top and melt on low heat. Remove from the heat and add your honey. Mix in, while still warm. Allow to cool down just enough for you to use it without burning your hands. Add your essential oils at this point and mix well. Apply to wet hair and apply liberally to dry areas. Massage gently into the hair and scalp. Comb it through so that all the hair is covered. Tie up your hair and cover with a towel. Leave on for as long as possible. Best results are seen with at least 30-minute applications. You can apply this mixture as many times in a week as you fancy! But I recommend doing it at least once per week.
To remove the coconut oil mask from your hair, you can use one egg mixed with a little water. Massage this into your hair and scalp and leave on for 5 minutes before rinsing off with lukewarm water. If you use hot water you will cook the egg, I’m sure you don't want cooked egg in your hair ;-)
Use a natural shampoo to remove the last bit of greasiness (might not be necessary)
Why wash your hair with egg?
If you would like to really give your hair an intense hydration session, you can do an overnight coconut oil treatment with the recipe above. You will need to make sure that you cover your hair so that you do not mess on anything since coconut oil will leave oil stains on bedding and clothing. Get yourself a bedtime cap. Doing an overnight treatment will also save you time during the day.
