We need to talk about a world wide takeover that will probably never go away.. coconut oil.
I KNOW. It’s a thing. For, like.. everything. Cooking, skin, hair, life..
But I’ve never truly discussed with you guys why I’m constantly rubbing and spraying coconut oil all over my head. Remember the spray’s post? NECESSARY.
Sooo.. obsessed might be down playing this one? I’m BEYOND obsessed. Overly. Excessive amounts of obsessed.
Get it yet???
When I chatted with my lifesaver hairdresser for a q&a (check it here), she mentioned that her favorite way to make her hair softer and shiner is coconut oil. She also mentioned that she’s tried EVERYTHING. Literally. So, I was sold.
Now – I’ve been putting coconut oil all over my hair for about a year now. It makes it super soft for like a week straight. But, I never knew that it was going FAR beyond that.
Like, GIVE ME MOREEEE.
I’m sure you’ve already hopped on the bandwagon with coconut oil – but HOLD on.
Ready for this?
+ IT STIMULATES HAIR GROWTH! (MASSAGE ON THE SCALP FOR ABOUT 10 MINUTES)
+ IT HELPS TO FIGHT AGAINST DANDRUFF
+ IT HELPS TO PREVENT ANNOYING SPLIT ENDS
+ A NATURAL CONDITIONER – A LOT OF SHAMPOO’S AND CONDITIONERS YOU USE HAVE SO MANY CHEMICALS IN THEM!
+ TAMES FRIZZ – MAJOR. I USE A TINY, TIIIINY BIT ON MY DRY HAIR TO CONTROL THE FLY AWAYS!
I mean, come on. I was totally throwing it onto my hair at night thinking it was just making it super soft. I had no idea it went ten times deeper. It was just.. cool to do? RIGHT.
Well, as you know, I’m all about details. So naturally, I dug deeper. Like why the hell is it cool to put coconut oil everywhere?
+ LIKE I SAID, IT’S BOMB FOR DRY HAIR. A TINY BIT. BUT IT SERIOUSLY TAMES. I APPLY IT LIKE A LOTION ON MY HANDS AND THEN JUST RUB MY HANDS THROUGH MY HAIR QUICK.
+ IF YOU SLEEP WITH IT IN, MAKE SURE YOU ONLY USE A TEENY TINY BIT OF CONDITIONER ON THE ENDS OF YOUR HAIR WHEN YOU SHOWER THE NEXT DAY.
+ MASSAGING IT ON YOUR HEAD FOR A FEW MINUTES WILL PROMOTE THE GROWTH – SEEMS TAUNTING BUT SO WORTH IT. REALLY GET IT IN THERE!
+ A LITTLE GOES A LOOOONG WAY – DON’T OVER DO IT.
+ CARRY IT IN YOUR PURSE. IT’S LIFE CHANGING.
I was adding a SHITLOAD of coconut oil to my hair – I totally needed to chill out. No need for that. When I say a little goes a long way, I mean it. Literally add a TINY bit to your hands, rub it all together, and run your fingers through your hair.
I have it in my hair right now & I’m about to jump right into bed to let it do it’s thing.
& honestly – it makes my pillows smell amazing. HA.
night babes, talk tmr – x
