Do you often find your hair to be a little too messy, dull and dry? Do u find too much hair on your pillow and hair brush, wishing you could end the hair loss? Frustrating right? I know, trust me- I’ve been there. My hair just wouldn’t grow in years, no matter how many hair masks and products I used, until one point I decided to throw out all the hair products and look for a natural solution for my hair problem. And yes, I’ve found it in only one simple ingredient- coconut oil! My hair became healthier in time, started growing and looking better, and right now it’s finally long, thick and shiny.
Coconut oil is one of the richest sources of saturated fat, contains both anti-fungal and antibacterial properties and therefore, it works like magic not only in the cosmetics world, but also in medicine, as it is widely known for it’s health benefits.
Coconut oil can be a hair-saver! It makes wonders to the hair, in many ways:
- Hydrates dry hair
- Slows down hair loss
- Protects the scalp against issues like dandruff, insect bites and lice
- Prevents hair breakage and split ends
- Stimulates hair growth & thickness
- Adds shine, moisture and softness to the hair
Now, there are many recipes that include coconut oil, but I recommend this one for all of us busy ladies having busy days. It’s so simple and the preparation time is 2 minutes. I promise.
All you need for this mask is coconut oil. You can use any type or brand- pure, unrefined organic coconut oil would be your ideal choice.
Fill 1/2 cup of coconut oil (if it’s solid, make sure that you boil it until it becomes liquid) and apply it onto your hair, starting from the ends and working your way up to the scalp. Massage it gently into the scalp. You can also use a hair comb to comb it through the hair and make sure every strand is covered.
That’s it! After you’ve applied it, wrap your hair up in a towel- the warmth provides a better effect. Leave it on for at least 30 minutes and then rinse it off using your regular hair shampoo.
I guarantee you- your hair will look and feel reborn!
