My Summer Regimen Using Coconut Oil

Week one of Hairlista's Coconut Oil Challenge is almost complete! This challenge will run through Saturday, August 23rd so it's not too late to participate.

Here is a recap of the advance level requirements for the challenge...

  • Apply Coconut oil to your hair and scalp, prior to washing, for 20mins – 1 hour or overnight. Massage it in focusing on damaged areas. Proceed with regular washday routine. Do this 2x/week.
  • Apply 1-2 tsp of Coconut Oil to your weekly deep conditioner with heat. Rinse thoroughly.
  • Apply Coconut oil to your scalp 2-3x/week. Do not rinse.
  • (OPTIONAL) Seal with Coconut oil on wet or dry hair.

If you are not a big fan of using coconut oil on your tresses then maybe the Basic or Intermediate level may work for you. (Check the link below for more info.)

You can also choose a favorite oil of your choice to add to your pre-poos and conditioners for added hair nourishment.

Just a Few Benefits of Coconut Oil:

1. Coconut is easy to find and all natural (Use organic, unrefined coconut oil)
2. Conditions Hair
3. Decreases Shedding
4. Promotes Hair Growth
5. Fights Against Dandruff and Other Scalp Issues
6. Prevents Breakage
7. Prevents Split Ends

When reviewing the benefits of coconut oil, taking part in this challenge for the summer is a win-win! 

In order to comply with the advanced level of the challenge, I have put together the following regimen for this challenge.

My Summer Regimen With Coconut Oil

Tuesday & Saturday
  • Apply coconut oil to hair and scalp for 1 hour or longer before washing hair...(include scalp massage)
  • Add 2 teaspoons of coconut oil to my moisturizing deep conditioner...sit under heated dryer for 20 minutes
Monday & Wednesday & Friday
  • Apply coconut oil lightly to scalp only and massage
  • Moisturize hair and seal lightly with coconut oil

I will try this schedule for the month of June and if necessary, do some tweaking. Now of course I have to make sure that this all falls in line with the styles I would like to wear. This may be tough going for three months, but that's why they call it challenge!

What are your thoughts on my current summer regimen? Do you incorporate coconut oil in your hair regimen?

Happy Hair Growing, Love, and Blessings!
