Coconut Oil Hair Treatment

So a few months ago I had my nice beautiful natural blonde hair... something possessed me to want to color my hair back dark and when the hair stylist put my first coat on.. well I guess my hair was trying to give me a sign that this was a bad idea because it didn't take to the color AT ALL. I was at the salon for close to 6 hours before my hair looked decent enough to leave. Let's just say.. I didn't leave happy and my hair left dried out and extremely treated. My hair (and my self esteem) has not been the same since! So I went on a hunt to get my hair healthy, shiny, and moisturized because my hair lacked all of those amazing qualities since I passed over to the dark side.

It's very simple and leaves your hair so healthy... shiny... and moisturized.

The only oil that is able to penetrate your hair is, of course, coconut oil! The miracle oil, is what I call it.

I also add Rosemary because it cleanses, strengthens, and nourishes hair follicles and encourages growth.

And Lavender (optional) because of its antibacterial properties, it also enhances the properties of Rosemary for improved cell regeneration and better penetration. Beneficial for dandruff too!

DIY Coconut Oil Hair Treatment

What you will need:

1/2 - 1 cup Coconut oil (depends on the amount of hair you have!)

8 drops Rosemary EO

8 drops Lavender EO (optional)

Shower Cap

Hair dryer


Scoop out a generous amount of coconut oil, about a 1/2 cup depending on how much hair you have. Add the essential oils, if desired, and apply to hair. Use more on the sections of hair that need more attention. 

Wrap your hair up in a shower cap.

You can either leave it on for 20-30 min (for dryer hair you can leave on longer) OR you can use a blow dryer to make your own "at home" salon hair dryer and sit under it for 15 minutes, to increase the effectiveness of the oils. 

After the time has passed, wash and condition your hair as usual.. you may want to wash it a few times because the coconut oil can make your hair feel oily if not all is washed out. 

For hair that is REALLY dry, you can repeat this once a week. 

This treatment is seriously amazing! After the treatment, my hair felt so smooth and was so shiny! I don't know if I can wait another week to do another treatment of it! :)
