REVIEW: Superdrug Coconut Oil!

Hello Everyone!

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. 

Then I smooth the oil through the lengths of my hair, concentrating it on the ends! With whatever is left I apply it to my roots and scalp. The first time I done this I was very scared as I thought it might not wash out properly and leave my hair looking very greasy but it honestly works and washes out great. Once all the product is applied you will be left with hair that looks like it hasn't been washed for weeks...lovely! Like this...

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!
