Coconut oil has been used as hair treatment for thousands of years. Tropical Traditions' Organic Hair Oils are made from their Gold Label coconut oil. This natural hair treatment contains only organic ingredients and no silicones, sulfates or alcohols. It comes in three flavors: lavender, rosemary and unscented. Since I love the natural aroma of coconut oil, I was torn between the unscented and the others. Finally, I chose the lavender - mmmm! My hair smells amazing every time I use the hair oil.
I like to check out the ingredients before using any new product. Here is what's in the hair oils: organic jojoba, organic Gold Label Standard Virgin Coconut Oil, organic macadamia nut oil, organic rosehip oil, organic shea butter, and organic carrot seed oil. In addition, the scented varieties contain organic rosemary essential oil and organic lavender essential oil. No mystery stuff here. The hair oils can be used as a treatment, shine serum and conditioner. It works great and takes no time at all to apply, no matter which method you choose:
- 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.
- As 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.
- Shine Serum: Rub a small amount in the palms of your hands and gently run over dry hair. Scrunch for curly hair or rake for straight hair.
