Ahhhh. My hair and scalp could do with some TLC and in these situations I always reach for my trusty jar of Virgin Coconut Oil. (Jar from Ikea, Coconut oil from eBay – of course!)
This has lasted me ages as I buy it 1kg at a time. Virgin Coconut oil is antibacterial and a lot of people using for cooking although I personally associate it with soapmaking and skincare too much to eat it!
Anyway this is just a bit of a ramble. Virgin Coconut Oil is one of the nicest treatments I use on my hair – it melts down as it gets warm and I slather it over my hair and scalp, clip it up and wrap it in cling film them leave it.
It has a tendency to drip after a while so have a towel around your shoulders.
Just remember there’s two kinds of Coconut Oil, refined and virgin. Virgin costs more, but it smells amazing – I mean amazing – and retains all of its goodness.
The stuff you see in some supermarkets that sell you 1kg for £3?…Probably not virgin. I paid about £16 for 1kg of Virgin Coconut oil but that’s pretty cheap. You can be paying about £9 for 250g of Virgin Coconut oil in some cases so do your research!
In my hair…the cats sniff at it enthusiastically…and I have to say No, little cat. You may not eat my hair.
My brush glides through my hair after a coconut treatment.
Messy, but good! I mean, great!
