Coconut Oil Hair Treatment

Growing out my locks has been one of my top priorities over the last year.
Let's just add it as one of New Years Resolutions because I know I can stick to that one ;)

I finally decided to try the Virgin Coconut Oil hair treatment that I've heard about from many people.
I have been searching for it at the local grocery stores over the past few months, but ultimately had to order it on Amazon.

Here's what you'll need:
 1. Virgin Coconut Oil - I used the organic brand, Nutiva.
2. A hair clip
3. Shower cap

Here's what you do:
1. Grab a good amount of coconut oil and rub it through your hair.
I have extremely thick hair so I used two hand grabs of the amount below.
 2. After your hair is saturated with oil, put all your hair up in a clip and then put the shower cap on.
Keep in mind that it doesn't have to be dripping with oil, it just needs to have touched
every part of your hair that you want to feel silky smooth :)
This is my hair after I was done adding the coconut oil.
3. After 30 minutes, wash your hair like you normally would and style it. Personally, I add Morrocan Oil & it's a 10
when I get out of the shower, but opted to only put Morrocan Oil on the ends of my hair to ensure that it wasn't too oily.
It's completely up to you though.

Of course I didn't take an after photo but my hair is definitely silky smooth.
After a few treatments, I can definitely see how this can help my hair grow :)
