By now, you’ve surely heard that coconut oil can be used for more than just cooking. Besides giving our meals a nice flavor, coconut oil has numerous cosmetic uses as well, especially for the hair. Today we’re going to show you how to use the oil to fight the appearance of gray hair and improve the overall health of your hair as well.
COCONUT OIL AGAINST HAIR LOSS AND GRAY HAIR
Gray hair and hair loss are 2 common problems that affect a major part of the population. Although they have no serious consequences, they can certainly ruin your appearance. People usually treat hair loss and gray hair with expensive commercial products and treatments that often do more harm than good and are harmful to the scalp. Instead of these products, you can use coconut oil to fight these problems, and we’re going to show you how.
- 3 tablespoons of coconut oil
- 2 teaspoons of sage
PREPARATION AND USE
Mix the sage and coconut oil well, then cook them for a while, but don’t let them boil. Once you get a homogenous mixture, remove the pot from the fire and leave it to cool down before applying it on your scalp. Massage the oily mixture in nicely and put a shower cap on, then leave the mixture to work overnight before rinsing your hair with water and a mild shampoo in the morning. For best results, we suggest repeating the process 2-3 times a week.
There’s also another simpler way of using coconut oil against hair loss and gray hair. Just apply a few drops of it on your scalp and leave it to work for 30 minutes, then rinse with water in the end. However, this method isn’t suitable for people with greasy hair as the oil provides more softness and shine to the hair.
Coconut oil is also effective against dandruff. To treat the problem, apply a few drops on the scalp and massage in circular motion, then leave the oil to work for 15-20 minutes. Rinse with cold water in the end and repeat the process every time you wash your hair.
