The use of coconut oil 

At room temperature, good quality coconut oil has a buttery texture, and if (completely unnecessarily) one places it in the fridge, it can be really difficult to scoop. That is why the use of coconut oil may seem a bit complicated. No worries, as a matter of fact, the use of coconut oil is easy even despite the unusual consistency.

Step 1. Preheat the oil to a minimum temperature of 25 degrees to make it melt. You can do it in a water bath, in a microwave (just a few seconds) or simply by putting a bowl of oil on the radiator. It can be even warmed up by rubbing it in the palms of your hands.

Step 2. The oil is to be applied to wet hair. Moisture not only facilitates the application of oil but also improves its absorption. It is best to rub it in the tips of the hair and massage into the scalp, and cover the whole length with a minimum amount.

Step 3. Tie the hair in a high knot and secure it with a warm towel. Such a home sauna for your hair will make the results much better. How long should you keep the coconut oil in your hair? From 30 minutes up to several hours. You can leave it in overnight an wash out in the morning.
