Advice on how to use Coconut Oil as conditioner?
Posted 13 May 2007 - 06:38 PM
People rave about this stuff for hair, but no one seems to give details on the most effective way to use it. Hoping it can be done quickly, as I am not one to leave something in my hair for hours on end!

melt a tsp of coconut oil in the microwave so that it liquifies
mix well into 2 tblspoon regular hair conditioner
shampoo hair, then apply conditioner with coconut oil
let stay on hair for 5 minutes or so, then rince well
**I use this method except I apply olive oil rather than coconut oil

If you buy the liquid kind, as far as I know, it has additives which makes it less effective.

|i put it in my hair for awhile before i go to the shower and shampoo it off. then i condtion as normal. or if my hair is really really dry (like in the winter) i'll add a few drops to my conditioner.|

if you did it before your shampoo, unless your hair's really dry, you can skip any conditioner.

If it was solid I'd just warm it in my hands and then rub into the ends, leave over night and then wash out as normal.
Because mine is in a spray bottle, it means i can leave it in, it's not pure oil. It still does the job though

If I'm using it as a conditioner, I use the same method but I use more coconut oil and apply it until my hair is thoroughly covered, then I leave it on overnight, and shampoo and condition as usual in the morning.
