Review: Tropical Traditions coconut oil for hair – Amazing

Two great products, both coconut oil & both amazing for hair.

Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil For Hair Treatment and Coconut Oil for Hair

If you have been following me any length of time you already know I am crazy for coconut oil, we use it daily cooking, baking, for skin, hair, deodorant & toothpaste etc. And by far my favorite brand of coconut oil is Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin coconut oil. So me picking these 2 products to review next might have just been a given.

But it is always a nice treat to try things a new way or a way you have not in a while with the first jar: Gold Label OrganicVirgin Coconut Oil For Hair. Or to try coconut oil in my hair with a product I have not tried before as is the case with the second jar: Coconut Oil for Hair.

Review time:

So why coconut oil for hair? well for us because it is amazing & goes so well with our no poo routine. We apply it to wet hair after a shower, we just add a bit to our fingers rub then rake through our hair with our fingers, for me a tiny bit goes a long hair, but one of my daughters & one of my sons can easily get dry hair & they get dandruff easily so they repeat the process several times & their hair never appears greasy. Me if I add just a touch too much mine looks greasy, so learn what works best for you.

We also love to use it as a pre conditioner or a hot oil treatment every few weeks. for pre treating I just add to my dry hair small amounts at a time & brush through (rub some on your face &/or skin at the same time, you will love it), I wait about 20 minutes & get in the shower & wash as normal, it might take a few washing to get it out but it is so worth it. For hot oil treatment my girls love to run hot/warm water over their hair that they added the coconut oil for hair & apple cider vinegar, then brush through & add  a hot towel fresh out of the dryer to their hair & wait 20 minutes then wash as normal (several washing maybe needed).

Another favorite is to add just a bit to our fingers & rub on the ends of our hair the day after washing & brush through, again be mindful of how much to put on your own hair a little goes a long way, my girls like this as a kinda booster between washings & love the shine it gives them & the way it helps flyaway hair.

So how did the Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil For Hair Treatment and Coconut Oil for Hair do when used for these 3 methods, they both worked great, my love of Tropical Traditions & there products continues.

So I say check out Tropical Traditions & check out all of their hair products, I highly recommend them.

Info from Tropical Traditions:

Coconut oil is a traditional oil that people in tropical places have used for hundreds of years to condition and maintain healthy hair. Countries like India have entire industries based around coconut oil for hair treatment.

In recent years, coconut oil has been popularly used for natural hair treatment with African hair types. Audrey Sivasothy, a writer on the Yahoo associated content network, has done research on “Black Hair Care” and notes that coconut oil is an excellent choice for a pre-treatment before the hair is shampooed, as well as an excellent sealant on dry hair. She writes: “Many black women suffer from hair porosity issues as a result of our styling choices. Coconut oil’s ability to prevent protein loss and reduce hair porosity makes it a valuable oil for those who chemically relax, regularly heat straighten, or permanently color their hair.” Those in the “natural hair” movement have repeatedly testified to the benefits of switching from harsh chemical treatments to pure coconut oil. Their testimonials in public places like Twitter are very numerous. Sivasothy comments:

Coconut oil is a very unique hair oil. This versatile, low molecular weight oil is able to leverage its traditional oil status to seal the hair, but complements this sealing capacity with a strong affinity for hair proteins not found in other hair oils. Coconut oil benefits black hair in two important ways. First, coconut oil’s hydrophobic oil characteristics allow it to inhibit the penetration of water from the surrounding air and environment. Second, coconut oil is able to bind to the natural protein structure of the hair. This helps the hair retain its natural moisture content and reinforces the hair fiber, making it stronger.1

Suggested Uses:

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 hair conditioner: Rub into the ends of your hair after washing, while the hair is still wet. Apply as needed, working towards the scalp. It can also be used as a pre-wash hair treatment applying just before showering.

Excellent for ALL hair types!
