Coconut oil overload!!!
Just wanted to share with you guys my coconut oil disaster which went from bad to good--
Last night I water washed and then used Naani's naturals conditioner(smells delish!) for the first time. I then attempted to pour a bit of coconut oil on my hair but the tub opened up and out spilled about 2 cups of coconut oil onto my hair!! It felt OK (I have extremely dry hair) so I did my usual rinse of only half of my condish out.
I plopped and slept with my hair in a pineapple. The next day I had the flattest, greasy-looking, stringy curls--EEK!
I ended up putting it up in a ponytail just to get through work. As soon as I got home, I quickly COwashed twice with VO5 Vanilla Mint Clarifying condish and then added a little Naani's naturals conditioner again, scrunched some Jessicurl CCSS
, plopped, air dried.
This time, my hair came out fabulous!! My curls are very soft, shiny, defined and full of body!!
My advice to all regarding coconut oil: use sparingly!!!
