Girls have you tried coconut oil in your hair to promote hair growth and health? How did it help or no help?
What Girls Said 21
Tried it and it was a massive fail.
Honestly, the best thing I've found for growth is just taking care of your hair. Don't wash it everyday, don't let it get too knotty that you tear out so much trying to brush it. Don't use heat products or dye it. Do a conditioning mask every fortnight/month.

Nothing you put ON your hair will promote growth. But coconut oil can help keep the hair in good condition and feeling soft.
It makes my hair feel greasy though. But it washes out so it's not like it's a risky experiment. It is also great for your skin.
I did a coconut oil infused hot oil treatment the other day though, and I am really loving the results.
Coconut oil is one of the best things to use on any part of you. I use it for my face which has made it super clear and smooth. I also use it for my hair. For hair growth, I used biotin 10,000 mcg and one a day vitamin. Also, dont shower my hair everyday. I trim it once every 2 months on my own because I dont trust people touching it. Thats about it.
I use it on my hair (I have 3b hair type) but only like once a month (I use Lucy Bee's extra virgin coconut oil and I use a bit as a moisturiser every few days). It softens my hair (and skin) and doesn't dry it out but generally I find that the best results are from when the coconut oil is consumed. I fry some of my breakfast foods (eggs, gram flour pancakes etc) in extra virgin coconut oil (it gets absorbed into the foods) and I've noticed that I get better results hair and skin wise.
it does in some ways, but i would mix it in with other essential oils like tea tree and olive oil, as coconut oil has the tendancy to dry the hair out on its own.
I've tried it along with the inversion method for a week and it didn't do anything but make my hair harder to wash.
I do hot oil treatments (heated hair bonnet) in my hair twice a week, every week. I also use pomegranate oil and monoi (ancient infused coconut oil) with my treatments. I use camellia oil (dry oil) when my hair is damp in a liquid form. I use a dry hair oil (combination of oils) when my hair is dry
This is part of my haircare routine/schedule
I used to bleach my hair and dye it candy pink and sometimes turquoise. My hair is almost waist length and the bottom half was severely damaged from those years of hair abuse and now it's SO strong, silky smooth, and shiny. So, it really works
I don't put any oils on me. I am already acne prone as it is.
It did for my eyelashes!
