Coconut oil has out done any deep treatment product I have ever bought which have costed me a fortune. I have used it as a pre shampoo treatment and it has left my hair so soft, managable and healthy. It took some work to get the oil out in the shower, but I did not even need to use conditioner after shampooing because my hair was so moisturised. I had purchased a big bottle of the oil for five dollars from an indian shop which is really cheap and it is 100% coconut oil.

Some time ago I wrote another review for coconut oil, and the myriad of uses it has. However, specifically for hair, it is excellent at strengthening strands, providing shine and nutrition, and helping to protect from damage.

I use this as a pre-shampoo treatment, hot oil treatment, overnight treatment, and sometimes will put a small amount at the ends of my hair after styling to protect from the dry winter air. I also use this on my hair after wet bunning.

An excellent treatment that you can use to help have healthy, bouncy, shiny hair. Also works well if you heat this and mix it with your favorite natural conditioner - I like to mix Coconut Oil, Jojoba Oil, and Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose together for a deep conditioning treatment, added a cap and heat for at least 20 minutes. My hair drinks in the moisture from the conditioner, and the natural oils help to seal the nutriients into my hair. Also, the jojoba conditions the skin of my scalp, also providing moisturization to encourage healthy hair growth.


Have used for years and will continue to do so. I keep a jar in the shower and apply it to my hair after wet. I also use this to take off makeup, moisturize my skin, and eating it is GREAT for you. Look up all the uses it has online! Or check out the other reviews for it on MUA. :)

I've been using this on my hair and skin and eating it daily for years. CO is just plain good stuff. Like most others I heat up a few tbsps and put this on dry hair avoiding the roots. I don't bother combing it through or anything like that. I leave it on anywhere from 30 minutes to a few hours depending on how much time I have. I find it very easy to shampoo out and just shampoo as normal. I have very fine hair and it does not weigh it down or make it greasy at all.

If you are acne prone be careful as this can cause breakouts for some. The key is not to get it on your face when putting it on your hair, right? Not hard to do at all really. Put your hair in a pony tail or just in a clip. I don't put this stuff anywhere near my face but slather it on my hands and body daily and it's wonderful.

Don't be afraid to try this on/in your food either. It's delicious and so good for you.

I've been using coconut oil on my hair for about 6 years. Love love love it! It really keeps your hair super healthy. I flat iron my hair daily after blowdrying, even with Japanese straightening and my hair is super healthy. I use it about twice a week these days, before shampooing. I love the coconut oil/milk combo in the can you can purchase at Whole Foods. It's easier to wash out this way.

After reading rave reviews of Coconut Oil, I bought some today. I paid about $10 for a jar approx 500g.

I have thick, wavy, coarse, dry, dark brown eurasian hair. I bleached it approximately August 2008 and then dyed it dark until about January 2009 since then I have let it grow out.

My hair is terribly dehydrated. The last time I went to the hairdresser she could not believe how dry it is and kept saying "it's so dry!". It's a pretty sad state of affairs.

My hair does not handle leave in products very well as they build up in my hair and do not absorb. I have been looking for a good leave in product or treatment or anything that can help my hair for sometime.

I have used CO once and put it on my dry, unwashed hair. Then I put my hair in pig tails and left it for a few hours. I have now washed my hair (with my normal shampoo and conditioner) and cannot believe how shiny my hair is.

The ends (which still have some bleach / colour in it) were still pretty dry, but the "virgin" hair is soft and silky.

Also, I do not have the normal flyaways and frizz that I usually get after washing. I have put a tiny amount in the ends of my hair now that it is dry as a "serum". I will update again as I use it more often, but so far after one wash I am very pleased with the results.

I LOVE COCONUT OIL! I initially purchased a jar from GNC because I was having major overprocessing/shedding/breakage issues from relaxing my hair. I visited a cheaper hairdresser JUST ONCE and boy did I pay for it! Anyway, I couldn't tell if my hair was shedding, or breaking near the root where the relaxer was applied. So I read somewhere that massaging coconut oil into your scalp at night works wonders. I did that for a while and noticed a huge difference. I then started applying it to my hair (focusing on the ends) whenever I wore my hair up in a bun or ponytail. It worked wonderfully! So I took it a step even further, and whenever I deep condition my hair, I first apply coconut oil to my wet hair and scalp, then a deep moisturing conditioner (such as elucence or hair mayo) and sit under the dryer for about 20 minutes. I do this about 1x a week and my hair is AWESOME! Also, I started taking Biotin 5000 mcg, which has helped my hair grow soooo much.

Note: I read somewhere that in order for coconut oil to be effective on the hair and enter the hair shaft (and not just coat it), it should be applied to wet/damp hair. Not sure if that's true, but that's what i heard!

I love love love using coconut oil on my hair! About 2-3 times a week, I'll apply a small amount (about 2 fingernails) to the ends. I then bun or braid my hair and leave it in overnight. The key to getting ANY oil out of hair is conditioner. I CO-wash exclusively, but I'm sure that using any non-cone conditioner after shampooing would be sufficient as well.I also put about one fingernail size to the ends before blow drying (on medium heat) and end up with soft, shiny hair all day.

I use this once a week, by tying my hair up and just rubbing the oil into the ponytail (totally avoiding my scalp and roots). Then I comb it through with a wide tooth comb, plait loosely and leave it in overnight. In the morning I shampoo my hair as normal at the roots, and give my hair a really, really good rinse out. Once my hair is dry it looks shiny, healthy, is easy to run a comb through, and doesn't feel heavy at all. In the beginning I was shocked at how pretty my hair could look!

The only issues I've come across is that I have stick straight, long fine hair, and if I curl it (which is normally once a week) the curl is not holding at all, and also dirt and dust seem to be attracted to my hair now. Apart from that, coconut oil is wonderful. I use the Cerebos Extra Virgin coconut oil, if this makes a difference.

I've tried all kinds of high-end conditioners, oils and natural products, and this is hands-down the best thing I've put in my hair. I put it on wet or dry hair for an hour, apply some heat, then shampoo it out and condition my hair normally. I wake up with my hair at its softest, shinest and most moisturized.

It isn't a perfect process. It's messy to apply from the jar when it's liquid, and it's difficult to shampoo it all out. Plus, I find the effects largely only last till the next shampoo. But nothing can do a miracle for hair...and this is still far by the most effective product I've found.

great treatment i use once or twice a week on my hair. adds shine, manageability, and softens my parched hair :) i leave this on for about an hour, then shampoo and condition as normal.
just take care not to apply too much, primarily from the shaft-down and focusing on the ends; avoiding the roots altogether. be sure to spend an extra few minutes washing this out, longer than you really think you need. cheap and effective. loads of other health benefits and uses also..
