Healthy oils can give
Excessive use of shampoos can strip out natural body oils which may affect scalp health and hair growth.
Unfortunately, some conditioners don't really replace your natural scalp oils; they simply coat the hair shaft making it look thicker and feel softer.
Having dry damaged hair may increase the risk for breakage and can lead to thin hairs with split ends. Replenishing these important scalp oils can help strengthen the shaft and reduce split ends.
Polynesian women have been using plant extracts to moisturize and condition for hundreds of years. Coconut oils are a natural source of healthy fatty acids, lauric and capric acids. These fatty acids have been shown to possess anti-microbial properties which may help reduce dandruff and improve scalp health.
Studies show coconut oils penetrate the hair shaft and reduce protein loss. This may help reduce dry itchy scalp, lessen dandruff and improve moisture levels.
Before beginning this treatment, you'll need a couple of items to prepare. You'll also need about one hour to do this deep conditioning treatment.
It's important to allow for sufficient time for maximum results; the longer you allow the oils to soak into the hair and scalp, the better the results you'll achieve.
You'll need the following items:
- One jar of virgin coconut oil
- Plastic shower cap
Shampoo, rinse and then and let dry until slightly damp.
Apply a quarter-sized amount of the product to your palms and rub hands together to coat your fingers and palms.
Run your fingers through your hair. Concentrate on coating the entire hair shafts from root to tip with the oil.
Take the plastic shower cap and cover your head. This keeps your hairs in place and helps retain heat to increase absorption.
Leave on the shower cap on for about one hour, then remove and rinse the oils from your head.

Some shampoos may
Depending on the general condition of your hair, you may require more or less treatments between shampoos.
Most people will do an initial treatment to gauge how much product to use and its effectiveness. They will then monitor their hair and scalp condition for the next few days before determining when to do another treatment.
People that use colorings or dyes, have perms or use heating tools such as blow dryers and flat irons may need to repeat the process more often to condition heavily-treated hair.
Testimonials from people indicate they experience positive results within 24 hours and they retained moisture levels for at least 2 - 3 days before another treatment was needed.

You can also get coconut oil shampoos. These products have the shampoo and plant oils combined in one bottle for added convenience. The only disadvantage with these types of products is you will not know how much coconut oils are actually added into the product.
