How do you use coconut oil?

Y's CurlsY's Curls Posts: 36Registered Users
I'm curious how those who use coconut oil apply it and are you using it in your daily regimen i.e as a daily sealant, massage in your scalp or under a gel or leave in? What do you feel the benefits of coconut oil are? Do you melt it to a liquid form and apply or use it in it's natural state. What brands of coconut oil do you use? I've been using shea butter and decided to try pure coconut oil of which I purchased at Whole Foods. I do love how soft and shiny it makes my hair. What I like is that my hair doesn't have a greasy or sticky feel vs. pure shea butter. I still like my shea butter but it makes my hair feel very greasy. Your input would great. Thanks!

    *raises hand*

    Ooo! Ooo! Pick me! I love coconut oil! I know you didn't ask all this but I used to read all the raves about coconut oil and I just didn't get it for a long time because it didn't work for me. But after finding out about all of its great benefits I was determined to make it work for me and now I can't live without it!

    I always have coconut oil on my hair. I always apply it on naked hair so that my hair can get the most benefits from it but I also use it over styling products, to "moisturize" when I straighten, and I am just always putting a little in my hair when I freshen up my hair style. This is why I think coconut oil is so great.

    1. No other oil has been proven to penetrate as deep into the hair.
    2. It prevents protein loss/protects your cuticles from handling/brushing/combing.
    3. It is antibacterial/antifungal.
    4. It protects against the sun/UV damage.
    5. It prevents water from making the hair strand swell up which can cause damage over time. I use it before swimming because of this and #4.
    6. When I use it on damp hair my hair dries so much faster.
    7. I think that it helps balance out porosity issues.
    8. When I apply it to dry hair it makes my hair more pliable almost the same as if I had misted my hair with water. This is why it is great over gel/pudding.
    9. It makes my hair soft and shiny but it is still touchable.
    10. It smells great! I wish the smell lasted longer.
    11. I use it instead of lotion now and I recently found out that it works well as a natural deodorant too.

    I swear there is nothing this oil can't do. I get the best results from use unrefined, expeller pressed/cold pressed virgin coconut oil. I use Spectrum or 365/Whole Food brands (much cheaper!) but have also bought some stinky cheap coconut oil that I use for oil rinsing and infusion expirements.

    I like coconut oil for sealing and oil rinsing. It's one of the only oils I can use for sealing because it's so light.

    I have grown to like coconut oil a whole lot. At first I didnt like it at all because it made my hair hard whenever I used it. I would mix it in conditioners, I tried hot oil treatments, etc. I recently pulled out because I had not touched the stuff for about 4-5 months- I had given up on it! But I was desperate to get rid of it so I searched the net and to find out how to use it. I realized that I was heavy handed with it. :sign6:I used literally a DAB of unrefined coconut oil for my whole head and my hair was so friggin soft! This stuff is the TRUTH:afro:. I wish I was using it all along. I probably wouldnt have the protein issues I have now. :disgust:

    I use it when I do my DC and also for sealing; it gives my hair a brilliant shine/sheen I love it.

    I love coconut oil as a prepoo on my hair only I prefer almond oil on my scalp as prepoo. I also use the vatika oil for oil rinsing and it is fast becoming a favorite - so that is mostly coconut oil does that count?

    I use it in its natural state so in the summer it is liquid and in the winter it is solid.
  • kejournerkejourner Posts: 180Registered Users
    i always put coconut oil on my hair after i wash it. I then put other products on top of that. Like someone mentioned earlier, it gives great shine without leaving your hair greasy. I have really dry skin so I use it on my skin too.
    It's good on toast too :love5:. I keep some in the pantry.

    Thanks everyone for all of your replies! Everything you've all said seems to be my experience in the short time I've been using it.

    @ vkb247 I'm even more excited about my coconut oil now!

    @ Kitathena and anja I've seen a lot of mention about oil rinsing and prepoo. Could you tell me how that's done and what's the benefit?

    Wow that's a lot of postive feedback for coconut oil!! I think I'll have to try it now, lol. I usually use unrefined shea butter and jojoba oil mixed together but maybe I can try something new. It took me forever to find the right combination of jojoba oil/shea butter so my hair wouldn't come out too greasy or oily.

    So essentially I could replace my shea butter and jojoba oil with coconut oil? Or do you guys use an additional mositurizer on top of that?

    LOL!! I'm loving the "it's good on toast" remark! I started using it as a deep conditioner a few months ago and my hair loves it! After shampooing, apply coconut oil liberally to hair and cover with a plastic cap and towel for at least an hour. Rinse and you have the softest hair ever!

    Hope this helps!

    6. When I use it on damp hair my hair dries so much faster.

    Ok this is my 3rd post about CO this week lol! I have the regular one but it did nothing for me. I finally bought organic extra virgin and I'm loving it! I just tried it on Thurs night. I used it with my overnight DT and then I put it on again after I washed out some of it with my DT. So I used it as a detangler, along with my DT, as a sealant...and oh yeah, I used it after my hair was dry as a moisturizer! I wasn't sure if it was gonna be a hot mess but it made my skin so soft on contact and it smelled so good, I just kept putting on! I was so surprised my hair absorbed it when it was dry! This is the best! I think I'm gonna use it on my body too! Btw, I'm the queen of product-multi-tasking lol...if I can find any other uses for this, trust: I'll do them!

    Ok, here are my questions...1) does anybody have any issue washing it down the drain? My tub was like slip and slide afterward :oops: and 2) the part of my hair that I put it on (wet) dried really quickly as well...does this mean it could dry out my hair in time? Does anybody know what this means?

    Thank you SO much for this thread, Y's Curls!

    :D Oil rinsing is a great way to detangle, may your hair more manageable, and it can really help overcome dryness. I think everyone should give it a try at least once! Pre pooing helps protect the hair before washing and is really useful if you are having problems with poo stripping your hair.

    CO use #12: Indian ladies often pre poo with oils overnight before hennaing and

    CO use #13: You can even use pre poo with coconut oil before dyeing your hair to prevent damage from the peroxide. It doesn't effect color uptake!

    Technically speaking oils are never moisturizers because you need water for that but coconut oil comes close because it penetrated the strand. I only use it alone on straight hair. Otherwise it goes under my moisturizer or over my gel.
    LOL!! I'm loving the "it's good on toast" remark! I Hope this helps!

    CO use #14: It is honestly fantastic on buttered toast with a little honey. Google for more information on its great health benefits!

    :toothy8: I'm glad you ladies are loving it as much as I do! When I was using it as a traditional oil rinse I was getting oil slicks in the tub. Keep some dish detergent in the bathroom to help wash it away. My house it older than I am so my tub drain really wasn't having all that oil. I do a modified oil rinse now by adding plenty of oil to my hair before using my poo bar (if I have just done an ayurvedic treatment) or before adding conditioner to my hair to detangle and that seems to be easier on the tub.

    I really don't know why my hair dries faster when I use CO but I have been using it for almost a year now so I know it doesn't cause dryness. I use a towel to gently squeeze the excess water out of my hair and when I apply the CO right away all the drippies stop so I was guessing that it is sealing the water into the hair! :confused3:

    I use coconut oil for EVERYTHING. I use it in my Daily Leave In as a sealant for my ends, I seal my two-strand twists with it by emulsifying it in my hands, and then gliding my palms down each twist. I use it on my scalp to relieve dryness. I use it on my body as a body oil when I get out of the shower. I only use raw unrefined coconut oil and I don't like using a microwave to melt it. It turns to liquid at around 76 degrees, so if I leave it on the counter when I'm in the shower it'll be liquid by the time I'm out. I even spooned some into a lip balm container which I leav in my car (since it's cold here) and I have instant lip balm whenever I need it!
    I also cook with it! LOL!

    @vkb247: yeah, that makes sense about locking the moisture in. But that's what I've never understood about oils...doesn't that mean moisture can't get in or out?

    If you're looking for CO on the cheap, try a bulk health foods store. I just paid $2 for a 16oz jar that I filled up from home.

    Do people melt it down in the microwave or on the stove before applying or just rub between their hands and hope for the best? :)

    The things that will coat your hair the most are silicones and mineral oil but even these aren't impenetrable. Natural oils can't seal out moisture and they will make moisture stay in longer but not forever. That's why I think sealing is overrated. Moisturizers and oils can only do so much when the hair underneath isn't as healthy/moist as it could be.

    Just rub the CO between your hands for a few second and it will turn to a liquid. It melts completely at 76 F so it doesn't take much.

    If you heat it up in the microwave or heat it too high on the stove you will kill some of it helpful properties.

    Sure pre pooing is just a pre shampoo treatment kind of like a hot oil treatment. You do it on dry hair before you wash or co-wash. The idea is that you reduce the stripping the natural oil from your hair because of the shampoo. I guess it is a way to keep the hair moist which in turn will keep it strong. Make sense?
    I think the technique depends on the person and the need, so I will tell you how I do it most of the time. I just section my hair usually from ear to ear and then divide he front in three sections and the back in like five. Then I coat my hair in EVCO and put a little on my scalp. Sometimes I put a bag on it and sometimes I don't but I usually leave it on for a min of 30 mins up to overnight. Then I wash as usual.

    Now an oil rinse. I started oil rinsing when I realized my hair and oil are only friends when wet. My hair gets an oil film and the hair itself gets dry and kind of brittle. So I think that when we apply oil to wet hair it seems to really penetrate the hair shaft and I am not sure why? Maybe because the cuticle is open and it can absorb the oil or maybe it smooth's the cuticle? I am just speculating, not sure why it works it just does.

    Anyway how to do it. wash you hair with warm water and then apply the oil to wet hair, I tend to leave mine dripping a little. Then I apply oil and let it soak up for about 30 mins to an hour. Oh only apply the oil to the hair from the root to the ends. Finger or comb it through. Rinse with the hot water and then use your conditioner and rinse that with cold water.

    I think there is a link on here about oil rinsing that may be able to answer more questions. Here is the one I have from LHCF: /home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.longhaircareforum.com%2Fforums%2Fshowthread.php%3Ft%3D150965%26amp%3Bhighlight%3Ddon%2Bsleep%2Boil%2Brinsing" class="Popup

    vkb247: Thanks for the input about the oils. That makes sense.

    In regards to pre pooing with oil, I used to do it when I used a more harsh shampoo. It was sulfate free but my hair is REALLY sensitive to shampoo. With the one I use now, I don't think its necessary. The oil definitely helps with detangling but If your shampoo is of the natural variety, you probably don't need it.

    I use it underneath leave-ins, on freshly shampooed/conditioned hair.

    I use it as daily "sealant" and protectant.

    It doesn't make my hair hard or dry. I love it.

    I'm gonna try oil rinsing before my next henna. Anyway, 2 weeks in and I am really loving the results. Last night I was too tired to twist my hair up. I freshened up my 3rd day hair by spritzing with my water bottle, applied some [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Knot-Today-p-207.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-knot-today-leaveindetangler]KCKT[/buylink], coconut oil then some [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink]. I "air dried" Fluffed and added a little more coconut oil to finish. My hair was so soft and not crunchy.

    I also used it to moisturize my skin right out of the shower. Fantastic for dry cuticles!

    In the past I never had good experiences with coconut oil (using some kind of refined mix with mineral oil), but after all the excitement on this thread, I decided to give it another try...
    Last night I did a co wash, conditioned with AO HSR and put some unrefined coconut oil on my toweldry hair (concentrating on the dry brittle ends). I hair immediatly absorbed it and felt extremely soft and well conditioned. I left it in overnight, wetted my hair this morning and it still felt great! But now, a couple of hours later I'm at work and have major shrinkage... (not a great look)
    Anyone using coconut oil having the same problem?

    I was also wondering about shea butter and want to try it out. How does shea compare to coconut oil? What are the major differences?
    My hair is very fine and brittle. What would you recommend, shea or coconut?

    Thanks in advance!

    I've never had that problem w/ coconut oil, but perhaps since it's a lighter oil, it didn't give you hair as much weight? Not sure, just a thought...

    coconut oil can me used in pretty much ANY recipe and be beneficial. I even use fractionated coconut oil when I just want the liquid form.

    Coconut oil is actually healthy for your health as well. I usually put a spoon full in my hot chocolate or coffee. It has many benefits such as helping weight loss, your metabolism,antibacterial..and many more. I also put a little bit under my eyes when I go to sleep it suppsed to prevent wrinkles.

    I tasted it the other day just to see...:pukel: it reminded me of what I'd imgaine mineral oil to taste like lol. I didn't taste any coconut at all. It was basically just like slime. Maybe it needs to be mixed with something :dontknow:
    You have beautiful hair btw!!!

    Lol, I love coconut oil..when it's melted and in food it tastes great! I love sauteing sweet potatoes in it...

    Are they not all created equal? Am I missing something? I have organic extra virgin by Nature's Way...
