Coconut Moisturising Oil for Hair

First, slather the coconut oil on your hair and cover your hair with a shower cap - bonus top tip, stock up when you treat yourself to a hotel break!  It's up to you whether you wish to applying heat, but doing so will open the cuticle of each strand so the coconut oil can penetrate the core faster- so you'd only need to keep the oil on for 15 minutes rather than at least 30 without heat.  You can use a hair dryer to apply heat over the shower cap as per the picture below from 'How does She?'and relax with a book or something, if you can.  Or keep the cap on, don't warm it up, and get on with household chores.  Or watch telly or play with the kids!

Gorgeous, gorgeous from Neal's Yard Remedies and quite good value (in my opinion) to!

Once  time is up wash and condition your hair as you normally would although you may need to wash your hair twice to rinse away all of the oil. I usually try two shampoos before conditioning it which mostly works - it may need another go though if you've put loads on!  I haven't done this, but the author of  'How does She? says to really focus on the roots and try to shampoo the ends as little as needed.

This treatment should produce soft, silky, smooth, sleek hair that looks fantastic!  It can be done as often as you feel is necessary but the more you do it, the less you will need to.
