That's what I used.. From health food shop. I did put a lot on but really bad result! I have conditioned my hair and it feels much better. Will stick to using it on my skin now only I think
The first time I tried this it worked beautifully, my hair was so soft and lovely. The second I tried it I made my hair feel awful and dry. Same coconut oil - I have no idea what was different to have two totally different results. Weird!
Yeah it is weird! You didn't go into the sun with it did you? That's the only thing I can think of. I put mine in a shower cap at all times. Also my hair was shiiiit when I did it, maybe yours was too nice already
I use it on my skin with awesome results, but hate it on my hair. I find it turns it dry and brittle and coarse feeling as well. :/ how strange. OP what kind of hair do you have to begin with? Mine is fine and blonde.
I tried it on my hair too and it felt gross. I don't even have dry hair, but I wanted to make my ends nice and soft and nourished. My hair was just kind of straw-like afterwards though, and i had to go wash it about 5 times to get the oil out... it was so gross.
Could it be that the oil wasn't washed out properly afterwards? I use oil (coconut or olive) on my kids hair when they get nits (which is all the fcuking time atm), and I find unless I wash it really really well a few times with lots of bubbles it can feel really yuck afterwards- not really oily, but straw-like. Not dry though.
My hair feels so lovely and soft after using coconut oil on it. I love it!
Yeah I had to shampoo five times :/
So odd. My hair is usually thick and a bit coarse because its curly. But not straw like. I did go in the sun but bit sitting in it. Maybe I didnt wash it out properly.. I just rinsed it out with water no conditioner afterwards. I'm too scared to do it again now!
