The Virtues of Coconut Oil for Black Hair and Skin Care

A sister ­friend stopped by and I commented on how her hair was growing like mad. She explained, that she was using coconut oil and that it was treating her well. I wanted the ”skinny” on how she used it. Did she shampoo first, or use on dry hair? Did she use a dime size amount, a tablespoon? Was it really greasy, and what happened in two or three days? Did it leave disgusting gunk? She patiently answered all of my questions and we headed out to the grocery store so I could make my purchase. I don’t like to wait when I hear about a good thing that is also affordable. I learned that while you can buy coconut oil at holistic spots,  the grocery oil isle can meet your coconut oil needs just fine. I found Viva Labs #1 Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil – 16 oz. A steal, coconut oil can be used for cooking, conditioning dry skin, and on our hair. Fabulous. I shampooed, conditioned, and combed through my hair. Afterward I applied the coconut oil to my scalp running it through the length of my hair. I placed my hair in twelve braids and wrapped it in a satin cap for the night. You don’t have to braid, you may opt for twists, [...]
