After falling in love with inecto's pure coconut intensely hydrating hair repair treatment, which is my all time favourite hair mask, I decided that I needed to get my hands on a tub of coconut oil. I picked this up at superdrug for around £2, which is an absolute bargain considering you get 125ml's.
The oil actually comes as a hard pressed balm and turns into an oil when rubbed between your hands or heated up. When I use this I pop a towel around my shoulders scoop out some product with a spoon, melt between my hands and apply to dry hair avoiding the roots. I like to leave it on for as long as possible, so I usually put my hair up and wash it out the next morning. Warning this does make your hair look like it's not been washed in weeks so apply on a day when your not going out.
When I wash it out I shampoo and condition as normal and once dry my hair is super moisturised, shiny and smells amazing. I have never found a product to be so effective at moisturising the hair, I think it's because coconut oil really penetrates the hair shaft. Another thing I love about this product is that it's a fantastic skin softener, so it moisturises my hands at the same time. Honestly my hair loves the stuff and I'm sorry hair for not introducing you to this little gem earlier.
Have you tried coconut oil before? Did your hair love it as much as mine?
