Coconut / Almond Oil Hair Treatment
To preface, my hair is a hot mess. I’ve been dyeing, blowdrying, flatironing, and washing it every single day for a very long time. Incredibly damaging. It hasn’t been until recently that I began letting my hair air dry more and brushing it every evening with a boar-bristle brush to distribute the natural oils, which allows me to go longer between washings. That alone has helped quite a bit.
Doing an oil treatment will give you AWESOME shine for a few days. Once a week would be ideal for keeping your hair super soft and shiny on a regular basis. Believe me, I was afraid to load my hair with oil at first, but it washes out really nicely with a good shampoo and leaves your hair looking freaking magnificent.
I used a combo of coconut and sweet almond oils, but you can experiment with different natural oils as well! Coconut oil is great as a hot oil treatment, as you need to warm it to melt it anyways.
1. Brush Dry Hair
Oils will penetrate dry, thirsty hair better than hair that’s been freshly washed and conditioned. Brush hair thoroughly to distribute its natural oils, and drape a towel over your shoulders to catch drips.
2. Go Section by Section
Work the oil into your hair one section at a time. Starting at the ends and using your fingers, work it into the hair until it’s saturated. Pay particular attention to dry and damaged areas, which will absorb more oil. Your hair will look and feel pretty disgusting during this process. Ignore Pinterest tutorial photos that may suggest otherwise.
3. Lock in the Moisture
This is optional, but blow-drying will help the oils penetrate the hair shaft. Using a dryer with a nozzle attachment on a medium-high setting, direct heat down the hair shaft and away from the scalp. Your hair will absorb much of the moisture it needs when heated; if it still drips, blot the excess with a towel. Another suggestion is to wind your hair in a bun at the top of your head and go outside if it’s sunny and warm. Let Mother Nature do her thang!
4. Sit Back and Relax
If you haven’t already, wind this mess into a bun on the top of your head, clip, and go do something productive, like give yourself a pedicure. It’s recommended that you leave the treatment in anywhere from 30 mins to 2 hours. For a truly deep conditioning treatment, leave the oils on overnight — just make sure to cover your pillow with a towel and be prepared for some messiness!
5. Shampoo, Then Rinse
Apply a heaping handful of a natural shampoo to hair. Work it into the hair and scalp for 3 to 5 minutes. Rinse. Repeat if necessary. Enjoy.
Ok guys, get ready for a real whopper of a post. I’ve come to talk to you about.. soap. Do you know what’s in your soap? Do you know what it’s doing to your body? I bet you don’t! Castile soap is all the rage, and all the cool kids are using it. Let me explain to you why you definitely absolutely should have a bottle [or bar] of castile soap in your house.
