One of my all-time favorite pastimes is doing weird stuff to my hair.
You saw with the green.
Now its jet black with a “squid ink” blue glow (yes, glow.) because maintaining a vibrant enough color on that streak of blonde is more costly and time consuming than I am ultimately willing to concede to.
Recently, I have come to a crossroads in my hair journey.
If I keep dying it, I can look forward to fried hair or something fun like early baldness.
OR I could keep hacking at it with my sewing scissors until I am effectively bald.
You know what though?
We don’t all have Britney’s bone structure.
I simply could not pull off this look.
So, I am taking a temporary moratorium from doing *all the things* to my hair and, instead, focusing on giving back a little… to my hair.
As you may know from my other hair treatment post, I don’t hold back when it comes to home remedies for frizz and there is always something new to try.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1/2 to 1 cup coconut oil
Here’s what you’ll do:
1. Heat the coconut oil in microwave safe bowl until it is melted. Mine took between 20-25 seconds.
2. Use a comb to evenly distribute the melted oil throughout your hair, especially at the ends.
3. Wrap your hair tightly in saran wrap and drape a moistened, heated towel over the saran wrap for 30 minutes to allow for maximum absorption. I had to re-warm my towel every 5-8 minutes to ensure maximum heat retention.
4. Shampoo and rinse hair in cold water. Try to avoid wrapping your hair tightly in a towel to dry. Wrapping your wet hair in a t-shirt or allowing it to mostly air dry will help prevent frizz and breakage.
My favorite thing about this hair treatment, besides how soft my hair felt post-shower/blow-dry, was how unbelievably attractive I found that I looked in saran wrap.
I mean, wow.
Until next time, cheers!
