Healthy Hair #1 Tip + DIY Treatment with Results


Hello, everyone!  Happy Thursday and welcome back to another post :)  Today I am sharing with you one of my favorite tips for promoting healthy hair.  Lately, my hair definitely hasn't felt or looked its best from this harsh winter.  My ends were VERY dry, damaged and noticeably splitting as you'll see in my closeup 'before' pictures.  In efforts to hydrate my hair and make it more manageable, I turned to hairs' best friend: Coconut Oil.

Onto Soft, Healthy Hair! Let's Get Started!

For this treatment all you need is Organic Coconut Oil (best bulk buy here) that is easily found at most grocery stores near the olive and vegetable oils.  Take 1-2Tbsp (depending on how long or thick your hair is) into a microwave-safe dish and microwave on high for about 20 seconds or until melted.  Once melted, I prefer working in small sections starting at the ends (generously!) and working upwards.  Then wrap it into a high bun and leave it for at least a few hours.  When you're ready, wash it out!  NOTE: You may have to shampoo twice to get the oily residue out.

Now that you've seen the best and WORST of my hair, I hope we can be friends!  If you want to help give life back into your hair, consider giving coconut oil a try!  When I'm good, I do this treatment 1-2 times a month.  However, I was bad and hadn't done it for some time so I actually had some scary 'before' pictures for you!  What tips do you have for healthy hair?  If you liked this post, please google+, comment and join this site (follow) for more :)  Have a great day and see YOU Saturday!

 Love ya lots,
Richelle

  6. The results are great ! I've heard how amazing coconut oil is for hair and although I use shampoos/conditioners that contain it, never tried it by itself but definitely will, your hair looks so healthy x

    1. Hi Andrea! Thank you! I love my hair long, so I'm really trying to take good care of it! You'll have to give this a try... pure coconut oil will give you better results than it being in products that dilute it. Let me know what you think! Thanks for commenting :)
