I have recently noticed that my hair has been looking quite dry and lifeless, so I decided that it was time I had a rummage through my hair care products and see what I could find. I came across Superdrug's Coconut Oil which I bought a few months ago. Over the past 3 weeks I have been using it continuously and loving it!!
This product say it's for skin but on the back it says it can be used as a hair and scalp mask which is what I use it for. I normally use this once or twice a week depending on how dry my hair looks.
Firstly I put some of the coconut oil into a small glass dish (anything microwaveable would work fine), the amount you require obviously varies according to your hair length. Then I put it in the microwave for about one minute and after that you will be left with a clear liquid. If you don't want to put it in the microwave, you can just melt it in your hands but I find my way quicker.
I normally leave the oil on for about half an hour, then I wash it out. You can leave it on over night for a really deep treatment but I usually don't have time to do that. I wash my hair as I always do but I use my shampoo twice since this will guarantee that no oil will be left. After my shower I leave my hair to dry naturally for a little while, then I spray on my leave-in conditioner as it helps get rid of the tugs in my hair. I then apply my heat protect and dry my hair. I am then left with beautifully soft, shiny, healthy looking hair.
Overall, this coconut oil works wonders for my hair and it is a lot cheaper than other coconut oils out there. It is only £2.29 so it definitely won't break the bank. I have found this product just as effective or more effective than other hair masks I have tried which is brilliant. The packaging obviously isn't that attractive but it does the job and for the price you really can't complain. The product will also last a very long time as it is quite deceiving how much is actually in that little tub.
So basically if you need a new hair mask that isn't too expensive, give this a try!
Thanks for reading!
