8 Uses For Coconut Oil in Your Hair

Coconut oil is full of amazing vitamins, minerals and lauric acid that can benefit your hair care routine.

Here are 8 ways you can transform your hair with coconut oil:

1. Deep Conditioning

Apply a tablespoon or so (depending on hair thickness and length) to your hair from root to tip. You want your hair to be well saturated. Leave it in your hair for 20-30 minutes then wash your hair like normal. For an even better deep conditioning treatment, leave the coconut oil on all night and wash out in the morning. Try this at least once a month or as needed.

I love the tingling sensation of the rosemary essential oil on my scalp. It makes my scalp feel amazing and helps with my dry hair and dandruff. I love the lavender essential oils for volume and thickness. It has helped my hair grow since I suffered hair loss after having a baby.

2. Split Ends

Apply a generous amount of coconut oil to the ends of your hair. Let it sit for 20-30 minutes then wash your hair like normal. You can also apply a small amount when your hair is dry.

3. Styling/Frizz

Apply to hair before or after styling to keep hairstyle intact and to help get rid of frizz and flyaways.

4. Hair Damage

Use as a conditioning treatment to help make your hair soft, shiny and feeling healthy again.

5. Dandruff/Dry Scalp

Saturate your scalp with coconut oil for at least 20-30 minutes then wash it out.

6. Hair Loss

Using coconut oil in your hair may help with hair loss.

7. Hair Toning

Mix coconut oil with a few drops of lavender essential oil and apply to hair. Leave in overnight and wash out in the morning.

8. Lice

Saturate your scalp and hair with coconut oil and tea tree essential oil. Use a comb to brush it through your hair to remove the lice.
