Coconut Oil Hair Mask
If you have dry, damaged hair, it’s also worth trying coconut oil. The capric and caprylic acids work as antioxidants and disinfectants, and the low molecular weight of the oil means it can easily penetrate the hair shaft.
Apply the coconut oil directly on to the hair and leave for 15 to 30 minutes. Alternatively you can add it to a mild shampoo, but don’t add to much (no more than 50/50) as it doesn’t mix well with certain shampoo types – especially non-SLS types. It’s often a case of trial and error, so don’t be worried about experimenting.
