Coconut Oil For Hair Washing......

by Adam

So I just yesterday bought some coconut oil for the first time (making sure to buy extra virgin), having long since been wanting to hearing about the health benefits of it and wanting to try and put some on my skin and scalp to get rid of some dryness and acne spots, and I came across your page today about using it on your hair in a search.

I was mentioned about using it for prewashes and postwashes, but you also said that you use it exclusively for your hair. Curious what your process of using it would be. I had found another site in searching about how to wash your hair with it, and may try this soon, but wondered what exactly you do, and what input you could offer about using it like this.

Here's the link for reference:

Thanks in advance, and much appreciation for posting what you do here. :)

Coconut Oil For Hair Washing Comments
by: Kate

Hi Adam,

Why thank you for writing in such a wonderful question!

I would be very happy to share with you what I do. I can assure you it's nothing out of the ordinary!

First of all, I wish to tell you that I don't wash my hair exclusively with coconut oil. I do believe most people shampoo their hair and use coconut oil as a conditioner/moisturizer for the hair and scalp. I don't want to mislead you that I do anything different.

Having said that, the process that I do is very simple and takes little to no time at all.

As I described in the article, coconut oil can be used as a pre-wash or post-wash. Both ways work very well, however, I usually stick to the post wash myself.

The first thing I do is shampoo (and I don't use products containing chemicals or any other harsh ingredients). The next thing I must tell you is that I don't shampoo everyday and this is because my hair is extremely coarse and thick. I have witnessed too many times what over shampooing can do to thick and wiry hair - it makes it more thick and wiry!! :-)

After rinsing out the shampoo, I apply a dab of coconut oil and massage all over my hair and scalp (just like the livestrong article said). I make sure not to apply too much because even on my thick hair too much can look and feel "greasy".

I comb out and either let the hair dry naturally or use a blow dryer on it briefly.

That's it!!

As I mentioned, I don't shampoo everyday but I often wet it on the alternate days to restyle and recondition. Again, I just apply a little to the wet hair and afterwards I have smooth, silky and shiny hair all over again.

Congratulations on buying your first jar of coconut oil and I encourage you to try using it for your hair (and elsewhere!).

Thank you again Adam for writing in and let us know how it goes. If you have further questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Be Well!
