Using coconut oil to nourish the hair and skin is an ancient tradition. Coconut oil is a conditioner that can be left in the hair to replace natural oils. It will leave your hair shinier and softer. This treatment is natural and provides more lasting results than any chemical treatments you can buy.

Step 1

You can buy coconut oil at any health food store and many grocery stores. Make sure it is pure coconut oil.

Step 2

After washing your hair, take a small amount of coconut oil, and spread it in the palm of your hands. You may need to experiment with different amounts to discover how much is right for your hair.

Step 3

Work the oil into the ends of your wet hair. There's no need to rinse.
