1. Warm the Coconut Oil
Avoid using a microwave as it can damage and alter the chemical structure of the oil.
2. Dampen hair with Warm Water
Use warm water to thoroughly dampen your hair.
3. Spoon Coconut Oil
Take one tablespoon of the warmed coconut oil and place into your hand. Begin to apply to your hair. A good rule of thumb is to use two tablespoons for shoulder length hair and up to four tablespoons for longer hair. Apply the coconut oil directly to the roots of your hair by using your fingertips.
4. Massage the Scalp
Massage for at least three minutes to get the maximum effects while boosting the circulation in your scalp. Don’t worry if a few strands of hair fall out, as this is normal during the massage process.
5. Put on Shower Cap
Cover your hair with a shower cap and let the coconut oil work its’ magic.
Twenty to thirty minutes is the minimum. If you have the time, leaving the shower cap on overnight will provide the best results.
7. Wash off
Gently rinse with a sulfate and preservative free shampoo. No additional conditioner will be required, as the coconut oil will leave your hair soft and silky.
