I’ve used coconut oil for cooking, I’ve used it on my hands and lips, and now I use it on my hair. Before going to sleep each night, I rub a small amount of coconut oil between my palms to melt it. Then, I run my hands through the ends of my hair. My hair smells incredible, and I fall asleep with tropical dreams. When I wake up, any external signs of the oil are gone, hopefully absorbed into my hair shafts instead of my pillow case. After a few nights of this routine, I noticed that my hair looked incredibly silky. I had a Marsha Brady moment. The coconut oil applications keep the ends of my hair moisturized, and any split ends are stopped from tangling into a self-destructive splitting cycle. Just make sure not to apply the oil before heat styling- you don’t want to literally fry your hair! That won’t smell as good as my sweet potato fries.
