I washed my hair last night and used a S&C sampler I had got from Trade Secrets its AGs smooth and sleek. I did blow dry my hair after thinking it would get rid of my frizzy hair but no such luck. So I googled hair treatments and time and time again coconut oil is spoke about. I found this little gem of info that I put below about putting the coconut oil on the hair and leaving it for 20-30 mins or longer if the hair is damaged and then putting a shower cap on top. Well I’m using a plastic bag and a clip and I’m leaving it on my hair for 60 minutes and then will wash my hair and let it air dry. I’m really hoping it will make it healthier looking after.
To be honest I thought that after I went blonde my curls would still be around but since going blonde my hair for the most part is a big ball of frizz not so much a ball but a shit load of frizz. I’ve used my Redken anti-snap leave in treatment. I’ve used Olaplex the stupid $35 tiny ass bottle. And what slays me that shit is to protect the hair when colouring which I don’t see how because my hairs frizzy. And the salon that put the high lights in my hair had that in the mix.
If I don’t some what style my hair it’s a frizzy mess. So I figure this is my last resort. Do a coconut oil mask. And maybe do these a few times a week. Or once a week. Other wise I’ll just start wearing my rooted blonde May wig when I go out in public. My hair is about that length now. I’m hoping this mask will work and restore some of the life back into my hair. Crossing my fingers.
I found this great info here.
How to Use Coconut Oil as a Deep Conditioning Treatment
For a deep conditioning treatment, massage a couple of tablespoons of the coconut oil into your clean, damp hair and scalp (if your hair is thinner or gets greasy easily, you may choose to skip the scalp as the oil could weigh your hair down).
You may need more for long hair. Use more oil where your hair is the driest and most damaged (typically on the ends) and less where your hair is healthiest (mid-shaft and scalp area). I find that it’s best to section your hair off and apply the coconut oil in manageable sections to be sure that every hair is coated properly. If your coconut oil is in a solid state, you will need to warm the oil gently to create a liquid. Allow the oil to sit on your hair for 20-30 minutes after application. People with very dry or porous hair may choose to leave it on longer and some people like to use it as an overnight treatment. To increase the effectiveness of the treatment, cover with a shower cap and wrap your hair in a hot towel (fresh from the dryer) or apply heat with a hair dryer for a few minutes. Because the oil is very heavy, you will need to shampoo the oil out of your hair well after the treatment.
Coconut oil can be a god-send to those with severely damaged, over processed, and heat styled hair. It will be important to experiment with the amount of coconut oil to use, and how long to allow the oil to penetrate your hair in a way that will work for your specific hair type. If the coconut oil leaves your hair feeling weighed down or greasy, try using less or shampooing more effectively post treatment.
