I love anything coconut for my hair and skin because it penetrates my hair/scalp/skin without leaving me greasy. I decided to experiment with creamed coconut I got from my local ASDA grocery store for £0.74. My hair was in plaits for almost two weeks and due to the heat wave my scalp got really dry and irritated so I wanted a treatment that was really heavy and creamy hence creamed coconut.
|Separated creamed coconut.|
1/2 cup of Creamed coconut
1/2 cup of Aubrey honeysuckle rose conditioner *You can use any conditioner of your choice
1 drop of Lemon essential oil
3 drops of Peppermint essential oil
2 drops of tea tree essential oil
Cling film to wrap the hair
*This measurement was enough for my hair length, you can adjust it to you needs.
Mix all the ingredients in a disposable plastic bowl
Condition and detangle hair
After rinsing out conditioner, apply creamed coconut treatment to detangled sections
Wrap hair with cling film for deep condition
Leave for as long as you want
Rinse hair and style as usual.
AND boom just like that my hair was coconut free and silky smooth. I put my hair in chunky twists and called it a night. Its ramadan season and I don’t have time to waste on styling my hair.
