I am famous for promoting grandma’s homemade hacks for skin and hair care in my friend circle. The tips I follow or share aren’t internet-search-based. They are tried, tested and proven rituals. Take, for example, the usage of cold-pressed coconut oil for hair. Even today, my weekends aren’t complete without a thorough hair treatment with coconut oil by my grandma. So if you are someone who is in search of a secret formula for healthy hair, read on.
Here is a word of caution. The oil has to be of good quality and assure purity. One can trust Sudhanitra in this regard. It has the best organic, traditional, pure and affordable agro products, including cold-pressed coconut oil.
Let’s explore five easy to do coconut oil hair masks that one can try at home. With religious usage, they guarantee thicker, longer and beautiful hair.
To moisture dry, rough hair, prepare a mask with 2 tablespoons coconut oil, 1 egg, 1 tablespoon organic honey. Slightly melt the oil and, in a separate bowl, whisk the egg thoroughly. Now mix the oil and egg together. Add the honey and whip all the ingredients till they form a uniform mixture. Clean your hair and make small sections while the hair is still damp. Apply the mask into each partition by gently massaging from root to tip. Use a shower cap to wrap the hair and leave for 30 minutes. Rinse it with water.
Cold-pressed coconut oil uses are found effective in taming unruly curly locks. Whip a DIY mask with a medium-size ripe avocado scooped and smashed in a bowl until it becomes smooth. Now add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and blend them well. Damp your hair and apply the mask by massaging from scalp to tips. Let it sit for 20 minutes, rinse with water and complete the ritual with shampoo and conditioner.
To get rid of dull and lifeless hair, prepare a mask with 2 tablespoons of cold-pressed coconut oil and 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar (ACV). Melt the oil and remove it from the heat. Now in a bowl, beat the ACV and oil thoroughly. Damp your hair a bit and apply the mask evenly from root to tip, ensuring it covers each section of dull hair. Let it sit for 20 minutes. Now rinse it and complete the ritual by using herbal shampoo and conditioner.
Oily scalp and hair are prevalent complaints. Cold-pressed coconut oil uses are one of the proven treatments to deal with them. Make a mask by melting 1 tablespoon coconut oil and stirring in 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Mask your dry hair with it and leave it for at least 15 minutes. Now rinse it with water. Get the best results by using this mask twice a week.
No More Itching
Treat the scalp itchiness with the goodness of 1 tablespoon cold-pressed coconut oil and 1 tablespoon aloe vera gel. Mix the two thoroughly to make a smooth mask and apply it on the scalp, and then move to the roots, followed by the tips. Leave it for 15 minutes. Use lukewarm water to rinse the hair. Shampooing and conditioning are optional. For the best result try it twice and week. Leaving it overnight has a more significant effect.
So go ahead and choose a mask using cold-pressed coconut oil for hair. Personally, I vouch for Sudhantira for its pure agro products, including cold-pressed coconut oil. It uses the best quality handpicked copra from its farms which are churned following traditional methods.
