This is a question asked by many women and it is an important question. The oil is good for your hair and will keep it moisturized and strong.

By choosing to use coconut oil to nourish your hair you are nourishing your hair as well as your scalp. The scalp is where the oils from the hair are absorbed into the bloodstream.

It is possible to get a bad condition if your hair is dry. If you are suffering from dryness, coconut oil may be just what you need. When using the oil on your hair, you need to be very careful. Make sure that the oil is not too hot and that you are using the oil at a gentle enough temperature to not over heat the hair. The easiest way to apply the oil is to shake it up and apply it as you would a can of spray gel or hair spray conditioner.

The idea is to spread the oil as evenly as possible on the hair. Some people choose to massage the oil in with their fingertips and then twist their hair until the oil is distributed all over the head. Others choose to use hair rollers or blow dryers to distribute the oil all over the hair. Whatever method you choose you will need to make sure that you are gently massaging the oil into the hair rather than applying a thick coat.

After you have carefully applied the coconut oil to the hair the next step is to shampoo the hair. The shampoo should help to lather up the oil, but not be too thick or heavy for the hair. If you have used the oil, you will know that it is not too thick to use as a shampoo but just right for a conditioning treatment. Also, read more about clarifying shampoo in this post.

Using a mild shampoo will prevent any irritation to the scalp if you are using the oil before washing. Using an oil which will result in you washing your hair too much may result in a scalp that is damaged and which will need to be cleaned more often. If you find that your hair feels too tight after you have washed it using a stronger shampoo may be advisable.

When you wash your hair, you need to use a product that is made specifically for your type of hair and which contains no coconut oil. Coconut oil contains ingredients which can have a drying effect on the hair. Most commercially available products do not contain the oil that you will be needing when shampooing your hair.

Once you have shampooed your hair and left it to dry, the next step is to put the oil into your hair. You will want to apply it with your fingers so that you can massage the oil into your hair evenly. Massaging the oil into the hair will create a foam effect which is similar to a warm bath. Once the oil has been absorbed into the hair, you will need to wash it out of the hair.

The idea of how to apply coconut oil to hair before washing should be as simple as that. You can create the foam effect by gently massaging the oil into the hair as you would a good shampoo. You should then rinse the oil away as you would any other shampoo or conditioner.
