Having very little disposable income I have had to forgo some of my little luxuries, unfortunately this has extended to having my haircut, I haven’t had it cut in about 8 months and usually by now it would be in such bad condition it would get matted really easily be full of split ends and generally look terrible. However I found this MAGIC formula for keeping my hair looking glossy and healthy with hardly any split ends! What is even better than this is that 250ml cost me £1.40 from my local shop! What is it I hear you cry?! It’s PURE COCONUT OIL!!!
How to get the best benefits from Coconut Oil: Before every shower I heat the bottle containing the oil under a hot running tap to turn the oil from a solid into a liquid, I then rub the oil into the length of my hair focusing particularly on the tips, I then tie my hair up and wait 10 minutes, when I get in the shower I leave my hair till last letting the steam help the oil penetrate my hair I then use my usual hair washing routine and that is all! An easy routine to use every time you wash your hair.
For a more intense treatment I recommend either of the following: rub the oil into hair before bed time and wash out in the morning (the oil will stain your bedsheets though so be warned). Or apply to the hair before hitting the sauna room at the gymnasium (You can use your usual conditioner for this too!) and shampoo and condition afterwards!
Why does coconut oil work so well? The molecular structure of the coconut oil enables it to penetrate inside the hair strands, locking in moisture and preventing protein loss.
Give it a try guys, its cheap and I guarantee your hair will be looking healthier in no time at all!
