Method #1: Straight up plain ol’ Coconut oil
Melt it in your hands (it melts VERY quickly, and turns into a consistency similar to mineral oil), and rub it through your hair.
Tie your hair up and leave it for at least 3 hours, preferably under a shower cap so that the heat and humidity helps the coconut oil penetrate your hair.
(Not what coconut oil looks like. It is not milky.)
Method #2: Avocado + Coconut Milk & Oil
Throw the following into a blender until it’s smooth, and then let it soak in for at least an hour or two.
1 mashed avocado
2 tbsp coconut oil
This works, because coconut oil has a different molecular structure that actually penetrates your hair and adds protein, unlike mineral oil.
The avocado is just extra to help it be like a moisturizing paste rather than like an oil in Method #1.
That looks so yummy.
Method #3: Yoghurt and Honey
3 tbsp plain yoghurt — I had to wrestle some away from BF. He’s a yoghurt fiend.
¼ cup honey
This is extra moisturizing (and tasty!), so it’s recommended for dry, damaged hair types.
Just so you know, you can also use yoghurt for your face as a brightening facial. 🙂 FYI.
Method #4: Argan or Jojoba Oil
Tons of girls swear by this. I use argan oil on my face, but it’s too expensive to put on my hair. Perhaps my scalp in the front where it gets dry.
