9 Ways to use Coconut Oil for Hair Extensions, Scalp and Skin

Coconut oil can work wonders on your hair extensions. It is often a problem with most hair extensions going dry or the scalp becomes itchy and dry.

After paying lots of money to have your hair done, the last thing snyone wants is a dull, shine-less heap of straw like looking hair. Coconut oil is really popular now and many conditioning products are coming up in the hair and beauty industry. For hair extensions it can be aall-in-one remedy; it can give the hair natural moisture and shine, thereby helping to restore some of the vitality and shine.

You can use coconut oil for massaging the scalp, conditioning hair, and also to make your tresses healthy and beautiful. Virgin coconut oil which is derived from fresh coconuts, can be used against several hair problems.

So, what can you use coconut oil for hair? Well, here are 9 suggestions:


1. Coconut Oil Promotes Hair Health


When it comes to accelerating hair growth, there is nothing better than coconut oil for stimulating your scalp because the fatty acids in coconut oil bind to the protein in hair to offer support to the roots as well as strands. Those with thin, flat, rough and dry hair can make their hair grow thicker, softer and shinier by using some pure virgin coconut oil on the scalp.

2. Coconut Oil Makes Hair Manageable


Coconut oil makes maintaining long hair extensions so much easier. Those who like to have their hair long should consider using coconut oil twice a week and thus slow down hair breakage and shreddage, dry hair and dull looking hair. Only use small amount so as not to make the hair feel greasy.


3. Coconut Oil Acts as a Conditioner


Many hair conditioning products have coconut as an ingredient. Coconut oil is a natural hair conditioner you can use. Owing to its easy molecular structure, coconut oil can easily penetrate into the hair shaft and work with the natural hair proteins on your own hair along with conditioning your hair extensions. This is why coconut oil for hair loss in not a myth and have been used for hundreds of years. It can be used to treat other hair-related conditions such as dry scalp or fungal conditions like seborrheic dermatitis which result in itchy flakes.

4. Coconut Oil Acts as a Hair Shampoo


A lot of shampoos contain Coconut oils. You can minimise protein loss during washing if you use coconut oil due to the presence of medium-chain triglycerides that can pass through the cell membrane and act as waterproof on the scalp and hair. Moreover, the natural antioxidants in coconut oil is better for your hair as it works naturally.

5. Massage – Coconut Oil Hair Treatment


Moisture is essential for healthy hair and is also one of the main causes of hair problems. Massaging the scalp with coconut oil penetrates the hair shaft, protects against environmental impurities and excessive heat. It enhances blood circulation and oxygen delivery to your hair, keeping them healthy.

You can mix coconut oil with lime juice and apply it to your hair; this prevents hair loss. Another benefit of massaging scalp with coconut oil is relaxation. When you feel relaxed, chemicals get released throughout your body that soothe all parts of the body, including the hair.

6. Coconut Oil Prevents Hair Loss/Hair Breakage


Coconut oil hair treatment is nothing new. Coconut oil has been used for a long time particularly by people in tropical regions. If you want to prevent hair breakage, turn to coconut oil orally and internally. Hair is one part of our body that is quite sensitive to changes in the body. Stress, malnutrition, hormone imbalance, pollution and chemicals can contribute to hair problems such as hair loss and hair breakage. When you use coconut oil on hair regularly, you don’t lose strands of hair that easy. This is how coconut oil takes care of hair breakage, hair loss and keeps other hair problems at bay.

7. Coconut Oil Prevents and treats dandruff


Dandruff, a condition of flaking and itchy scalp, is one of the common hair complaints. If you want to reduce your risk of getting it or treat it, coconut oil can help you with that. Rich in vitamin E, vitamin K and iron, coconut oil helps you get rid of dandruff besides boosting hair growth.

8. Coconut Oil Fights baldness


Some people use hair extensions to disguise hair loss. The use of coconut oil on the scalp promotes hair growth as well as counter hair loss and combat baldness. Coconut oil is an antibacterial as well as an anti-fungal and full of medium chain triglycerides which prevent hair loss besides giving the hair more body. Coconut oil use makes hair stronger and restores all the necessary natural oils, preventing hair from breaking and allowing them to grow. Coconut oil also helps reduce the loss of protein in the hair.

9. Coconut Oil other benefits

Besides hair and hair extensions, coconut and its products can aid in skin care, weight loss, digestion, metabolism and high blood pressure. When you have coconut oil, you don’t need deep conditioners, under-eye creams and lotions. Coconut oil is a wonderful natural way to make skin soft, supple and healthy.

Coconut oil in its virgin state is very oily to the touch, so you only need a little bit. Because it can be used externally, used in cooking or taken pure some so called Health experts warn against the use of coconut oil if you are on medication,  pregnant or breastfeeding, so in keeping with protocol it is advisable to seek advice from your doctor.

Does and Don’t Prior to Getting Your Wedding Hair Extensions Done

Five Tips About Getting Your Wedding Hair Extensions Done

I wouldn’t ever suggest doing your wedding hair yourself in the first place and please please do not put clipins in for your special day! 

For a wedding you’re attending, sure. Go right ahead.

Do your own curls, straighten your own locks, run a brush through it and call it a day.

But with your own wedding, you have to remember all eyes are on you. And, during your ceremony, all eyes are on the back of your head. You want to make sure what they’re looking at is perfection and you can get that from a professional. When you’re stressing out wedding morning — hoping that your groom makes it to the church on time, wondering if there will be enough food at the cocktail hour — the last thing you want to do is stand in your bathroom with a curling iron. You won’t have the patience to hold each curl long enough and your hair will be a mess. And you’ll regret it.

I put together a list of five tips about getting your wedding hair done so that you don’t end up looking at your photos and regretting anything.

1. Don’t wash your hair the morning of your wedding.

Showering when you wake up just makes you feel energised. And for wedding day, that’s what you need.

2. Know what you want. And make sure you get it.

Pinterest is an amazing tool to help you find wedding hair ideas. In fact, we have a some wedding hair ideas Pinterest board and growing. Feel free to pin any and all of those ideas. Because when you’re getting married, you need an idea of what you want. The standard hair extension technicians at the salon will not look at you and say, “Oh, you have medium-length hair. This is the style for you.” Instead, they will say, “What style did you have in mind?” And it’s so much easier to show them a photo as a guide instead of saying, “I was thinking something half up and down with curls. I think. Maybe. Or all down. Or no curls. What do you think?”

Just a note to have a Signature Hair Extension Consultant offer you that service you would have to be prepared for a big bill.

When you decide what you want, make sure you get it.

A bit of advice, don’t be unreasonable or too far reaching about your style. For instance if you have 1 inch of hair don’t go asking for 26 inches. (unless it’s a wig)

3. Don’t waste your money on hair extensions trialstyles. 

This is the most controversial tip, but I am really sticking firm to stating you don’t need a trial. However with hair extensions I suggest you get them installed at least a week before your wedding if they are semi permanent. I also recommend you have a stylist that is use to styling long hair extensions.

Many stylists will have a portfolio where you can check out their work and styles they’ve done before so you can get an idea of what they are capable of. Salons who attend wedding expos will have these at the booths usually (I’ve never seen a salon at an expo that didn’t have one, but you never know). Portfolios should help you feel comfortable at a salon you’ve never used before. (MAKE SURE IT’S THERE WORK AND NOT DOWNLOADED FROM THE INTERNET)

And you have to remember, too, you’re hiring a professional. You have to trust that she knows what she’s doing because this is what she gets paid to do. If you were having surgery, would you go to the doctor for a trial? No. You would just go and get it done. Extreme example, but same concept.
4. Find out if your salon will travel.

Unless you are really confident that everything will be done if you went to the salon, find out if your stylist will come to you along with the makeup artist.

Make sure you also have some quality time for your stylist and that you won’t  be disturbed.


5. Don’t forget to pull out some cash to pay your stylist.

Getting organised the day before for things you need to pay for is worth it.

Your debit card has probably been hammered and the last thing you want is paying for your hair and makeup to go drastically wrong. Also prepare for emergencies incase a bridesmaid has a desaster that needs fixing straight away.
