Coconut oil has all sorts of qualities that make it an amazing tool in your health and beauty arsenal, especially for your hair. The fatty acids in coconut oil can penetrate into the hair shaft, infusing moisture back into your hair and leaving it soft and shiny. Coconut oil also contains proteins that can strengthen your hair and prevent damage.

The oil also reduces friction between individual hair strands, meaning smoother hair and fewer tangles.

How to Use Coconut Oil for Your Hair

There are countless ways you can use coconut oil in your hair. You can add a bit of it into your regular shampoo or conditioner, for an added boost of hydration…you can use a little dab on your fingers to smooth down fly a ways and split ends….but my favorite way to use coconut oil on my hair is to make a homemade deep conditioning treatment.

Coconut Oil Deep Conditioner

Use coconut oil that is in its solid state. If you live in a warm climate or your coconut oil has been sitting out somewhere warm, just stick it in the fridge for a few minutes until it solidifies.

Measure the coconut oil into a small bowl and stir well. Stirring will heat it up just enough to create a smooth, creamy texture.

Then cover your hair with a plastic bag or shower cap, and use a hair dryer to warm the hair a bit. Leave the mixture on your hair for 15-30 minutes.

Finally, wash and condition your hair as usual. Use this deep conditioner once a week for the fullest benefits.
