'regular use of coconut oil on your hair could make your hair softer and more lustrous.'
One of the many wondrous uses of our Lucy Bee Coconut Oil is as a hair treatment. Beloved for thousands of years by those living in the tropics as a conditioner, coconut oil may well give you the hair you always dreamed of.
Regular use of coconut oil could make your hair softer and more lustrous than ever before. You see, coconut oil is incredible at penetrating hair follicles and therefore moisturising and conditioning from the outside, in.
2) Rich in Nutrients
Coconut oil is loaded with natural antioxidants and nutrients such as vitamin E, vitamin K and iron. Each of these plays a key role in keeping your hair soft and supple, and iron can even eradicate dandruff from the scalp.
Bacteria can be a problem in both hair and on the scalp. However, coconut oil contains both antifungal and antibacterial properties, which protect against dandruff and lice, both of which can affect hair growth.
Heat the Oil
Either heat the oil (solid at room temperature) between the palms of your hands, or heat the jar gently in warm water, before wetting your hair.
Using one to four tablespoons of oil (depending on how long your hair is and remember that a little goes a long way), begin to massage the oil into your hair with your fingertips, ensuring you work it into the hair follicles by applying to the roots. To get the full benefit, massage for a good few minutes.
Now, cover your hair with a towel or a shower cap and leave Lucy Bee to work its magic! Leave overnight before washing off for an incredible deep-conditioning treatment, or for at least twenty minutes for an intensive condition.
*Please note, what works for one person may not necessarily work for another so we recommend always doing your own research and then testing coconut oil on a small area of your hair and scalp before using as a full treatment.
