In my salon I deal with a lot of damaged hair and that type of hair needs to be treated before and after a corrective hair color process. I recommend a natural way of expediting the process instead of investing in a product that will not do anything made by a manufacturer and sells normally for $40-$50 dollars. And also these product’s are also chemicals that you are laying on top of damaged hair. Since the start of history Coconut Oil has been tried and true. Since the Egyptians to the Greeks to Hollywood they have all used this method to had sheen, luster and conditioning to the hair. A cost-effective way to bring back the health of the hair and make the elasticity come back within a few months. Coconut oil, specifically virgin coconut oil, is a completely natural product that is safe to use both internally and externally, and some believe it has healing properties not found in other natural oils. Glands in your scalp produce sebum, a natural oil required for healthy, strong hair. Sebum is a necessity for hair growth and health. Coconut oil replenishes any lost oil to the hair follicles and penetrates the hair’s shaft for deep moisturizing. Coconut oil is a natural source of many vitamins and nutrients, which are used to seal in moisture and coat the hair in a protecting layer to prevent lost moisture and damage. So if you are visiting me for a corrective hair color service, I will always recommend this all natural product.
Keeping your hair thoroughly moisturized is important in repairing and preventing damage. Coconut works very much like a deep conditioner, restoring natural oils and repairing existing damage. If your breakage is severe, a hot coconut oil treatment treats split ends and other damage while replenishing lost moisture and sealing the hair shaft to protect against further breakage. By heating a clean towel in the dryer, you can turn coconut oil into an inexpensive hot oil treatment and say goodbye to existing damage.
Massaging coconut oil into your scalp not only feels wonderful, but also gives you even better results. Massaging the scalp stimulates the hair’s glands and increases blood flow to promote hair growth, and the coconut oil has the ability to enter the hair follicle to replenish lost moisture. When applied directly to the scalp, coconut oil is an all-natural treatment for scalp inflammations like dandruff and psoriasis. Over-the-counter and prescription shampoos and creams have adverse side effects, such as causing open scalp sores, damages to the hair itself and hair loss or slow hair growth.
To use coconut oil as a moisturizing treatment, work a few tablespoons into the hair and scalp until both are completely saturated and leave on for 10 minutes. For repairing and preventing damage, apply the coconut oil to your scalp and hair then wrap your head in a heated towel. Leave the towel in place until it completely cools down. With both the room temperature and hot oil treatments, shampoo your hair afterwards to remove the oil. For scalp stimulation and inflammation treatments, massage the coconut oil into your scalp for 10 minutes. Allow the coconut oil to remain in place for an additional 20 minutes before rinsing out and shampooing your hair, focusing on the scalp area. You may need to shampoo your hair several times, specifically the root area, to remove excess oil.
