A few days ago I did yet another post on coconut oil. In the post I mentioned that I would like to try coconut oil as a prepoo since I had not done that with coconut oil yet. Well, I finally did it!
I love coconut oil and use it often so working with coconut oil is a breeze for me now. The first thing I did was melt the coconut oil by placing a small amount (¼ cup) in a jar and placing the jar in hot water.
Then I separated my hair into four sections. Once the oil was melted I applied the coconut oil to my hair starting at the ends and them moving up towards my scalp.
I left the coconut on my hair for 1 hour. In one section I kinda put too much oil and it was dripping down my neck, lol.
When it was time to wash I soaked/rinsed my hair thoroughly with warm water. Then I used shampoo to cleanse my scalp.
Afterwards my hair felt very different. The strands felt thicker and my hair felt stronger. It wasn't a bad feeling just different. I am going to try this a few more times so that I can get a better opinion on how I feel about the coconut oil prepoo. I can say I like this way better than when I used to prepoo with Olive oil.
