Hair conditioner!


Who would have thought that plain old coconut oil would condition hair so well. I read about it and thought I would try it. Put three teaspoons of coconut oil into a cup and gently melt it (while you are washing your hair) by putting the cup inside a bowl with some boiling water in it.

Towel dry your hair and then rub the coconut oil into your scalp. Wrap your hair into a towel and leave it for an hour. Here is the key - do not eat anything while your hair takes in the goodness of the oil.

Wash out the coconut oil and dry as normal. Your hair will be absolutely soft and in the best condition.

I cook my food in it, spread it on toast, put it in smoothies (melted first) , put it on dry skin, put it on my nails and feet, bake with it, and use it on my hair. It's good stuff, I have a stock pile in my cupboard as I buy up when it's on sale.

  Gwen Replied:

Theresa, that is amazing!

  Michelle Replied:

  linda Replied:

i knew about it but had not tried it. i use it also for hand lotion and it works great for dry skin.

I don't even know what coconut oil is but would love to try it in my hair! Is it in a grocery store or a health food store? Just curious...

  Gwen Replied:

Either store Tick Tock. I actually buy mine in an Asian store in a jar and it can be used for all sorts of things, as others have said. It is thought to be really healthy.

  Gwen Replied:

I now buy coconut oil in Costco. It is organic too!
