Coconut oil in hair care.
Today’s product range is really huge, whatever market you’re searching on. Companies and producers try to serve all kinds of needs of the customers. Moreover, they also generate some, but that is another topic about business and profits. It is the fact that you can find hundreds of products for one problem or need. Presenting new products time after time is also basic. Ready to use products from the lowest price to the luxury category. Sometimes I have the feeling that choosing the one is getting more and more difficult, because there are so many products out there. Nevertheless, there are a lot of people who still prefer natural solutions, just like using coconut oil in hair care.

How to use coconut oil in hair care?
As you can see, using coconut oil in hair care has a lot of benefits. But how can you apply it on your hair? Choose extra virgin coconut oil. To bring the solid oil to a manageable state, you need to heat it. Avoid using a microwave oven, because the oil may be less effective after. The best way is warming it with the help of a bowl of hot water. After it’s melted, apply the oil on damp or dry hair. Before the usage you need to decide about the purpose of the treatment. If the aim is nourishing your scalp, you need to massage it into the roots. For a conditioning effect (or if your scalp is too oily) it is enough to leave it only on your hair (not on the scalp) for minimum 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, rinse your hair and scalp with warm water and enjoy the smell of this wonderful oil. For a richer scent you can drop essential oils into coconut oil before applying. My favourite is jasmine. If you face the problem of split ends, apply coconut oil on the ends without rinsing.
Coconut oil is a natural solution for some beauty problems, with a bit of summer scent.
