Just Coconut Oil

Pure or Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) is the coconut hair oil recipe for me. In my experience, commercial hair care products with coconut oil also contain hidden and harmful ingredients that negate the benefits of coconut oil.

I have long brown hair so I use about 3-4 tablespoons of coconut oil daily, just for my hair. As you mentioned, it’s important to massage it gently into your scalp as well, not just the hair.

Hope my little tip helps someone else…

Hi Greta,

I agree! Even if the label says it contains coconut oil, it doesn’t guarantee effectiveness. Why? Because as you said, there are also undesirable chemicals added to the product (shampoo, conditioner, etc.).

Use coconut oil as a standalone product. Nowadays, it’s almost the only way you can avoid getting your hair and scalp exposed to damaging chemicals.
