I'm sure you've all heard of coconut oil by now. It's become very popular and mainstream. I fell in love with the stuff when I was pregnant with the twins and discovered that it soothed the overstretched skin on my tummy without the sticky, over-scented goop like it's cousin. I've also been using it more frequently in cooking recipes. So overall, I'm a fan.
Last week when my hairdresser told me to put al little a coconut oil on my dry scalp I thought "why not?" But as I started searching for my scalp through my enormous amount of hair I realized there was no way I was going to be able to target just my scalp with the creamy oil. This meant that the root of my hair got coated in the oil too and I began to worry. Let me just tell you, I didn't worry enough! I let the coconut oil set for 4-5 minutes and then headed to the shower to wash it out. But it didn't wash. In fact it has now been 4 days and 12 shampoos later (this is usually the number of time I shampoo in a month) and I can still feel the greasy slick of coconut oil in my hair! I am miserable and so darn mad. I was trying to combat a little dry scalp and I now have a greasy scalp and very dry ends! Just a week ago I was loving my hair now, I'm considering baldness! Needless to say, my love affair of coconut oil has ended.
