How to Use Coconut Oil

by BB


I’m trying to grow my hair and I just purchased a VCO but still confused on how to use it. Do I have to wash it off every time I apply it on my hair or can I use it as a “leave-in?” Secondly, can I mix the VCO with shea butter, jojoba and extra virgin olive oils so as to make my own home-made hair product?

Thank you.

Hi BB,

No, you don’t have to wash it off every time you apply coconut oil on your hair. And yes, you can use it as a leave-in. But I suggest you wash it off with a mild shampoo at least an hour after application, preferably overnight. Doing this, I find my hair so soft, smooth and manageable.

That’s good thinking! Mix VCO with shea butter, jojoba oil, extra virgin olive oil, and/or other natural hair oils and you have yourself a healthy homemade hair product. Absolutely!

All the best,
