Coconut oil deep conditioning #naturalhair #teamnatural

Who says you have to shampoo first before deep conditioning?

Who says that you can't use coconut oil as a deep conditioner??.....

Upon the release of my crochet braids, I decided to deep condition. Of course I didn't have any type of time to shampoo then wait till morning to wash out my conditioner. Moreover, i HATE going to bed with a we head.

I had a friend recently notify about a technique that leaves your hair just as conditioned as a regular deep conditioner. Raw 100% coconut oil that is.

 

What is coconut oil?

Coconut oil is extracted from the kernel or meat of matured coconut harvested from the coconut palm (Cocos nucifera). Throughout the tropical world it has provided the primary source of fat in the diets of millions of people for generations. It has various applications in food, medicine, and industry. Coconut oil is very heat stable so it makes an excellent cooking and frying oil. It has a smoke point of about 360 °F (180 °C). Because of its stability it is slow to oxidize and thus resistant to rancidity, lasting up to two years due to high saturated fat content. [Source]

Can it be used for hair?

Of course. It has been used for skin and hair needs for a very long time. It is rich in antioxidant nutrients, and its moisturizing properties keeps hair soft and healthy. Many use it for cooking as well as long as it is unrefined.

 

Where can you purchase it?

You can find this lovely agent in most grocery stores or even places like GNC. It is also readily found on-line at herbal stores and vitamin shops.

 

Lets watch this become a deep conditioner:
