How To Make Your Own Coconut Oil Hair Treatment
I’m no tree hugger but I love organic products, especially natural hair treatments. Also, no one (not even some Pinterest guru) can make me pour vinegar on my head.
Everyone’s going crazy over organic coconut oil. Maybe that’s the reason why in Japan (we all know Japanese people are into anything fresh, organic and natural) there’s a high demand for extra virgin coconut oil. Even Americans are willing to spend dollars to get that natural hair treatment, not to mention the other benefits of coconut oil. Well, I guess we’re lucky here in the Philippines. Coconut trees are everywhere.
So instead of apple cider vinegar on your hair, I suggest using organic coconut oil for hair. If you don’t like to buy coconut oil in supermarkets because you don’t trust companies enough when they say they sell everything organic, don’t worry, doing your own coconut milk hair treatment should be a cakewalk.
Using Coconut Oil Treatment For Dry Hair
What you need:
Honey and eucalyptus oil
Heat the coconut milk
Add the honey and eucalyptus oil
Heat and mix them over low heat.
Your coconut oil should look something like this:
How to apply
Massage your hair and scalp. You can use it before you wash your hair. Use the oil as your regular hair conditioner.

What I like about the oil
- My hair’s exposed to chemicals but it’s really not as damaged as I expected it to be, using coconut oil is really a big help. My hair is healthier now.
- It’s way too cheap as compared to expensive synthetic hair conditioners
- It’s organic, no chemicals
- I used to worry about my split ends back then but I stopped having them right after I started applying coconut oil on my hair
- My hair feels softer
What I don’t like about the oil
- Though you can smell the cooling aroma of eucalyptus oil, the familiar coconut smell lingers
- It’s hot on the scalp if you put too much oil
Benefits of coconut oil for your hair
- Mixed with eucalyptus oil and honey, the oil is the best choice if you have dry scalp and terrible dandruff; remember that eucalyptus oil is a good anti-dandruff oil
- It prevents gray hair and minimizes split ends
- It nourishes dry hair and minimizes damages
- Good hair conditioner. Say goodbye to synthetic hair conditioners
- Not only is coconut oil good for your skin but it also moisturizes your hair, keeping it healthy
As a regular coconut oil user, I’ve proven this coconut oil hair treatment to be effective and yes, economical. An argan oil treatment would be nice too. The only problem is we don’t have argan trees here.
Goodbye synthetic hair products. We’re done with chemicals, adios.

About The Blog
This blog is a reflection of my struggles to stay sober, creative and relevant for the past eight years. I deal with my very minor (perhaps imaginary) social anxieties through blogging about beauty products that I bought compulsively and conquering awkward feelings whenever I face the camera to awkwardly share my fashion outfits.
It's orgasmic to finally let go of my thoughts and live different lives. Adios. May you find solace in other realms of the universe.
