Lately my hair became very dry and frizzy from coloring my roots blond every 5 weeks!
I was searching for a very good selfmade beauty treatment!
When I came across this article for Coconut Oil Hair treatment, I wanted to share it with you! Please let me know, if anyone has made good experience with it as well! So here we go!

You Will Need
• 1–2 teaspoons virgin coconut oil (for really short hair, do half a teaspoon)
• 1 teaspoon honey

Optional: To customize by hair type, add a few drops of any of the following:
Fine hair: pomegranate seed oil
Wavy hair: sweet almond oil
Coarse hair: avocado oil
Thick hair: olive oil

Mix the ingredients together in a bowl until it forms a smooth paste. Apply to damp hair, concentrating especially on the ends. Let it sit for about 30 minutes. For extra moisturizing or very coarse hair, you can wear it overnight: after applying the mixture, wrap locks well with plastic wrap and/or a towel, and shampoo and condition in the morning.
If you have normal to oily hair, take a dime sized amount of your normal shampoo and wash your hair as usual.
If you have dry, frizzy or damaged hair, skip the shampoo to prevent further drying.
Now, apply a small amount of conditioner to your hair from your ears to your ends and let sit for at least 1 minute. Finish with a cool rinse.

Allow your hair to air dry if possible.

Style your hair as usual and enjoy!

Why Use Honey and Coconut Oil?

Honey works so well with hair because it is a natural humectant, which means that it holds on to water molecules, making it an ideal moisturizer. Coconut oil also acts as a moisturizer and contains lactic acid which aids in strengthening and smoothing the cuticle.

What Types of Hair Can This Treatment Be Used On?

Everyone’s hair has a specific need when it comes to care and nurturing. It usually requires a significant amount of experimenting until you find what is exactly right for you in order to achieve the results you want. Always keep in mind when trying new hair treatments that what is right for someone else may not achieve the same results for you.

This hair treatment is gentle and safe enough to use on all hair types. It can be used on thin, thick, curly, straight, wavy, long, short, or medium hair. It works extremely well with smoothing and rejuvenating curly hair, damaged hair, and long dry ends. Even with normal hair types, this pre-shampoo treatment will add softness and shine.

Among three oils, coconut oil was the only oil found to reduce the protein loss remarkably for both undamaged and damaged hair when used as a pre-wash and post-wash grooming product.
