Best ways to apply coconut oil to your hair
I was surprised that not many girls know ways to apply coconut oil to their hair even though they know its huge benefits. If you are one of them, then don’t worry, you are about to learn some practical tips here.
But before we start, I would like to tell you about my journey with coconut oil. I was born with naturally curly, textured hair, which stressed me out for years since I was in high school. But I was lucky enough that I found coconut oil right after I got depression since everybody made fun of my hair. Coconut oil is a mildly ultra-moisturizing product that soothing to the scalp. That’s why it has saved my year-round dry strands countless times. The Journal of Cosmetic Science reported that coconut oil is a triglyceride of lauric acid (principal fatty acid) and can penetrate inside the hair shaft. Moreover, it also makes a big contribution to the prevention of protein loss in the strands.
And here they are – the lessons I have learned after nearly a decade of using coconut oil and a whole bunch of expert advice.It is not ideal to apply coconut oil in the morning because when the soaking time is not enough, your hair may end up looking greasy, which is a nightmare for every girl. Instead, try to use this product at night when you are not normally in a rush and see how it works. Warming the coconut oil is recommended since liquid always makes the absorbing process speed up.
How long it takes when appyling coconut oil?
Part your hair and apply the coconut oil in controllable sections. You should make sure that every hair is covered. Leave it there from 20 to 30 minutes. You can adjust the duration depending on how dry your hair is.
Another way to use coconut oil is by putting a very small amount of it into the ends of your hair after showering. It may work as a detangler or daily moisturizer for very dry hair. Your hair will get a glamourous transformation if you are patient enough to do this routine regularly.
