Coconut oil has been used for hair treatment in coconut producing countries such as India and the Philippines for thousands of years.
Living in Hawaii and constantly being in the sun, pool, and ocean can easily dry out your hair. I was looking for a treatment that would be more natural than what you can buy in your local store. Tropical Traditions coconut hair oil works great and has the most lovely scent.
Tropical Traditions has formulated three different hair oils using organic Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil along with other high quality organic oils known to nourish hair. Along with the base of organic Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil, they included organic jojoba oil, organic macadamia nut oil, organic rosehip oil, organic shea butter, and organic carrot seed oil in each formulation. Two of the formulations are scented with the highest quality organic essential oils available, imported from France: Rosemary and Lavender. There are no other ingredients besides these high quality organic oils: NO SILICONES, NO SULFATES, and NO ALCOHOLS.
For dry scalp: Rub into hair and scalp at least 30 minutes before showering, or before bed at night. Wear a shower cap or towel to protect bedding.
* I use it for a conditioner: As a deep conditioner, work through scalp and hair before washing. Leave in for 15 minutes to overnight. For a leave-in conditioner, work a small amount through wet hair before styling and drying.
