Dry hair can be dull and brittle with excessive breakage and flyaways a common occurrence. Luckily, there’s a cheap pick-me-up recommended by Victoria Beckham’s hairdresser Jason Collier. The celebrity go-stylist uses coconut oil to treat dry hair. “It’s one of the most nourishing deep conditioners you can get your hands on, and best of all, it’s all natural and fairly inexpensive,” he says. Coconut oil is also perfect for naturally curly hair and can be used in a variety of ways. Scroll below to see how Collier uses it.
Warm a few tablespoons of oil in the microwave and use as a scalp moisturiser. Your locks will be healthy, hydrated and free from dandruff. To rehydrate tired strands, use it as an overnight mask. Apply through hair, paying particular attention to the mid-lengths and ends. Then slip on a shower cap, let it work overnight and rinse with a deep-cleansing shampoo in the morning. Use it as a serum to condition hair. A little will go a long way. For long, thick hair use up to three tablespoons of oil, and a tablespoon for fine or short hair to avoid overloading your mane.
And Collier’s final secret for a healthy scalp and glossy hair? “I like to use coconut oil for a stimulating head massage,” he says. “Not only does it de-stress and unwind your mind after a long day, but it can also help to boost hair growth. It promotes circulation to the scalp, which means that more oxygen and nutrients will be directed to your hair follicles.” Massage into roots for at least 10 minutes and smooth the excess down the lengths.
