We are going loco for coco-nut oil! In places like Thailand, India, Malaysia, Philippines and the Caribbean, women have been using coconut oil for hundreds of years. From cooking to removing make-up, it's an all-natural multipurpose miracle worker - especially for hair.
Why is it so amazing? Coconut oil contains many naturally occurring vitamins and minerals, as well as lauric acid. Surprisingly, coconut oil's fatty acid is composed of 50% lauric acid. Because of its low molecular weight, coconut oil binds and deeply penetrates the hair shaft. In addition to minimizing protein loss, coconut oil does not easily evaporate and keeps moisture locked in resulting in silky smooth hair. So here in a nut shell (pun intended), is the essence to creating stronger hair, less prone to damage!
Below is a Do-It-Yourself recipe for a coconut oil hair treatment to be used in combination with our Hydrolizer Spa Cap. Give it a try!
Raw Organic Cold Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil
Note: Amount of coconut oil will depend on hair length.
Nesting Bowls x 2
Hydrolizer Cordless Spa Cap x 1
Towel x 1
Wash hair with shampoo and towel dry.
Place coconut oil in the smaller of the 2 bowls.
Fill larger bowl with a little bit of hot water.
Carefully place the smaller bowl in the larger so it does not submerge.
Wait for the solidified coconut oil to liquefy.
Note: You will know when it is ready when the coconut oil turns from opaque to clear color.
Remove the smaller nesting bowl.
CAUTION: Confirm coconut oil is not too hot to touch.
Using your hands, gently work the coconut oil into your hair from tip to root.
To enhance your treatment, use in combination with our Hydrolizer Spa Cap for 20 minutes.
Finish off by shampooing the coconut oil out of your hair, towel dry and feel Hydrolized!
Note: Coconut oil solidifies at around 75°F or 24°C. If your coconut oil is already in a liquid state, skip step #4.
Look for raw organic cold pressed virgin coconut oil that has no fragrance or dyes and has not been hydrogenated, bleached, or refined in any way.
Always confirm coconut oil is not too hot to touch. Remember hot oil is a burn hazard.
Did you know that coconut oil is nature's richest source of lauric acid? The runner up is human breast milk, which is about 6 to 10%.
