3 Simple Ways To Use Coconut Oil on Your Hair Today

Coconut oil is probably one of the most versatile oils to use on your hair. Not to mention, coconut oil is incredibly moisturizing and works great as a sealant.

If you are looking to add a few new oils to your natural hair care regimen, then you definitely want to experiment with coconut oil.

Here are 3 simple ways you can use coconut oil on your hair today.


We all know how important it is to have clean hair but a lot of us cannot stand that dry feeling after our hair has been shampooed. Regardless of what type of shampoo you use, its main goal is to remove dirt, oils, and grime from your hair, which in most cases causes your hair to feel dry. Pre-pooing, or pre-shampooing is a great way to prepare your hair for the shampoo process. By applying a healthy amount of coconut oil to your hair before shampooing, you will create a moisture barrier. Your hair will be squeaky clean and maintain its moisture at the same time.

 Deep Conditioner 

 Natural hair needs a lot of moisture and one of the best ways to give your hair the moisture it needs is by deep conditioning. Now, store or salon-bought deep conditioning products work great but there is nothing like a natural product when it comes to deep conditioning. Coconut oil is one of the few oils that penetrate the hair shaft, meaning that the oil is slowly absorbed into the hair follicle and works to strengthen from the inside out. The longer you leave coconut oil on your hair, the better. The best way to utilize its amazing moisture powers is to apply a healthy amount to your hair, cover your hair with a shower cap, and then sit under a seated dryer for 30 minutes at a time. Your hair will thank you.

 Styling Aid

 One of the fun things about wearing your natural hair is all of the beautiful hairstyles. Our hair texture is so adaptable; making it easy for us to try different looks. Coconut oil will help you to create those gorgeous hairstyles and you won’t have to worry about your hair drying out like it does with some other styling products. If you like to wear your hair in two-strand twists, try adding a small amount of coconut oil to each section of your hair before you begin your twists. When you are ready to untwist your hair, you will be amazed by hiw soft and shiny your twists look.

 Coconut oil mixed with water also can be used as styling pomade or as an edge control product. For better results, spritz your edges with water and then apply a little bit of coconut oil to the area with a toothbrush. You then want to cover your hair with a silk or satin scarf and leave it on for at least an hour; you will love the sleek look!

 The great thing about coconut oil is that it is really affordable. Visit your local super market or health food store and start using coconut oil today.
