Coconut Oil Great for Dreadlocks and Braids

by Natasha Vincent
(Montreal, CANADA)

Coconut oil is great for dreadlocks and braids. My daughter wears her hair in braids. For the past three years, I have used organic unrefined virgin coconut oil in her hair (made in the Philippines, of course)!

The ritual is a weekend long affair where her hair is rinsed on Friday evening, air-dried until damp, then I add about 1 tbs. of coconut oil to her hair before she goes to bed, with a shower cap.

For added protection from the wetness, I put a microfiber towel over the shower cap. The next morning, her hair is washed and ready for a new braid style!

After wearing dreadlocks for almost 10 years, I've only used coconut oil for the past four and I'll never go back!

The feeling is tremendous even though I don't typically leave it on overnight. No need for a regular hair conditioner. Only a small amount of scalp oil (or even coconut oil)!

Do try it. Organic unrefined virgin coconut oil can be found in your local health food store.

Coconut Oil for Silky, Shiny Hair

by Chanttell
(Augusta, GA)

I am an African American woman with natural hair (no chemical treatment at all). After one use of coconut oil I noticed a difference in the texture and color or my hair. The coconut oil has left my hair softer and shinier without the look or feel of being greasy. My collar-length hair is much more manageable with less shedding. Not being completely convinced I tried the coconut conditioning a second time and the same results followed. I am convinced and will continue conditioning with coconut oil.

Formula: Now brand coconut oil and a shower cap. Rub hair liberally with coconut oil then place a shower cap on for approximately 30 minutes then shampoo.

Using Coconut Oil for Luscious, Full Hair

I am an African American woman with chemically-treated hair. After using coconut oil as a deep conditioner for the first time, I noticed my hair was shinier, appeared thicker & longer, and full of body & life. I have gotten so many compliments and have since recommended coconut oil to several others. I also wash my hair with Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition and love it as well.

Deep Conditioning with Coconut oil

by Brittany K.
(Athens, GA)

Yesterday (Oct 10,2010) was the first time I'd used coconut oil for conditioning my hair. I used the Nutiva brand (extra virgin, cold pressed,etc.) and I really like it. It didn't take very much to coat my hair (I have shoulder length natural African-American hair (never permed)). I let it sit for about two hours. I rinsed with hot water first then cold water. I didn't wash all of it out and I could tell after flat-ironing my hair b/c it was heavier than usual but I believe this could be fixed by rinsing longer next time. I could notice the softness of my hair after rinsing it and I love it. Hopefully the amount of oil in my hair will decrease soon so my hair will fly in the wind again (it also doesn't look as full).
