Deep Conditioning

You can give up the fancy conditioners and hot oil treatments, too. For conditioning you have many options.

Light conditioning
If you just need to replace your usual, everyday conditioner dab a very small amount of coconut oil on towel-dried hair and leave in. this works on dry hair that needs some taming throughout the day, too.

Deeper conditioning
For deeper conditioning, comb coconut oil through your hair and leave in overnight (place a towel over your pillow). Wash it out in the morning. If you don’t want to leave it in overnight you can put it in your hair an hour or just before washing.

Mayonnaise treatments are cheap, easy, and do wonders for your hair. A warning, though, some people can’t tolerate the smell. Simply comb mayonnaise through your hair, pile it on your head or put in a bun, cover with a plastic grocery bag or shower cap, leave in for 10 to 30 minutes, and wash out.

Hot oil
This is so easy and works so well, you’ll never buy a hot oil treatment again.

In a double boiler, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil and 2 tablespoons coconut oil until warm. Let it cool some if needed. Don’t burn yourself!

Heat a towel by soaking it in hot water. I boil water and pour it over the towel in my kitchen sink.

Comb the warm oil through hair, pile it on your head. Cover with the warm towel. Cover that with a plastic bag or plastic wrap. Leave in 10 to 30 minutes. Wash out.
