Gaining popularity from extensive use in the Indian sub-continent, coconut oil has proved to be a top nutritional supplement for hair. Not only does coconut oil add shine, it is an excellent conditioner and helps regrow dry and damaged hair. Providing essential proteins, this oil succeeds in styling hair while maintaining health benefits.

Things You'll Need

  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Warm towel

Style the hair with coconut oil used as a gel substitute or protection coat. This product is oil, so minimal application is recommended. The coconut oil adds weight to the hair and is specifically used to style thick, curly, or dry hair types.

Prepare the hair by washing and drying it. For especially dry and dandruff ridden scalps, nourish the hair follicles by applying the coconut oil beforehand. Apply the oil gently to the head with fingertips. Wrap the hair in a warm towel. This procedure will help to remove any dryness and strengthen the hair. Wash the hair with shampoo followed by little or no conditioner. Dry the hair.

Dab a nickel-sized portion or smaller amount of coconut oil into your hands. Use fingertips to apply the coconut oil to the ends of the hair, creating a smooth and finished appearance. Separate curls or strands of hair, styling as desired. Add additional coconut oil to create a smooth look. Style the hair, only applying further oil if you want to achieve a gelled appearance.
