Best Hair Advice Ever – Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is a wonder oil. You can read more about it on wikipedia here. Those who follow ZedHair on Facebook will recall that we had a brief discussion on the merits of pre-pooing with coconut oil based on a Natural Haven article. You can check out The Natural Haven here.
Coconut Oil:

So, why do I love this oil so much?

1. It really moisturises my hair. When I use coconut oil, I don’t have to oil my hair as often as when I do not use it, as my hair does not dry out as much. I think this is because it penetrates the hair shaft.
2. I feel that my hair shines more when I use coconut oil. I like the sheen that it gets, without looking greasy. Just a tiny bit rubbed on top of any style, gives great shine. This works for extensions as well as my own hair.
3. A little goes a long long way. I find that the bottle really lasts.

Coconut oil can get tricky in the cold season as it solidifies at room temperature. So, between May and August, I either run it under the hot water tap or nuke it in the microwave.

Before coconut oil, I was buying branded moisturisers that required me to apply to my hair every single day. After that, I used raw shea butter, which is great for softness, but doesn’t give the same shine as coconut oil.
