WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Okay, so you’ve heard about why you should be using our Raw Coconut Oil for Hair, but where do you start?  Even if you aren’t that familiar with raw coconut oil, you can still reap the benefits of this amazing product.

Read on and learn how to use coconut oil for your hair like a pro!

Raw Coconut oil is a natural alternative to chemically-laden products that aim to make your locks look healthier. Whether you’re looking for deep conditioning or simply want an all-natural styling product, it’s a great way to get beautiful, healthy-looking hair in a hurry.

Although there are many different kinds of coconut oil out there, only certain varieties can actually do wonders for your tresses and live up to the hype!

With this guide,  you'll learn how to find the correct oil to use, when to use it, and how to use it on your hair in the most beneficial ways.

It’s a common misconception that any coconut oil will do.  A high quality coconut oil will yield much better results than others, so you’ll want to know a few things before heading out to buy your first jar.

Keep in mind that simply because it’s called cold-pressed “virgin coconut oil” doesn’t mean you should use it as a daily conditioner.

In reality, many oils on the market are just too thick, greasy, smelly and are full of impurities. Most are good enough for cooking, but really shouldn’t  be used on your body.

✔️ Look for an oil that contains all of the essential nutrients beneficial to your hair - these are often lost when low quality or heat producing processes are used to extract the coconut oil from old coconuts.

✔️ Make sure there is no strong coconut scent or foul odors - this can be a sign of high moisture content and impurity, which can clog pores and make it go rancid quicker.

✔️ Avoid coconut oil that’s  been treated or extracted using chemicals - These chemicals can be very harmful to your hair and body!

✔️ Avoid any coconut oil that’s been bleached, deodorized, or refined in any way - These are often old or very low grade oils that are treated to hide the tell-tale signs of low quality.

In summary, when using coconut oil for your hair, avoid cooking grade coconut oil that can damage your hair and clog your scalp and pores.

It is extremely important to use a clean, high quality oil that is pure and unrefined such as COCO & CO.'s  Raw Coconut Oil for Beauty.

Using a special extraction process, COCO & CO. produces the highest quality beauty-grade oil available on the market. The only raw coconut oil made for hair use!

HOW-TO USE

Coconut oil is one amazing ingredient that can transform your hair in a number of ways. For starters, it  acts as a heat protectant, which can be helpful if you’re exposing your hair to high temperatures on a regular basis (e.g., if you use hot tools regularly). It’s also an incredible moisturizer and helps balance out your scalp’s natural oils.

One of the easiest ways to incorporate coconut oil into your routine is by adding a few drops of it to your regular conditioner or using it as a conditioner on its own.  Pure coconut oil has natural moisturizing properties and penetrates deeper than other oils to keep your hair moisturized.

✔️STEP 1:
If your coconut oil seems solid when it comes out of its container, warm it between your hands, or simply submerge the jar in warm water until it softens up. 

✔️STEP 2:
Begin with damp or wet hair, apply 1-2 teaspoons of coconut oil by itself or mix with your regular conditioner. Starting from the scalp,  gently massage into your hair from roots to tips. As with all things beauty-related, patience is key! Rinse off hair thoroughly with warm water until any excess is washed off.

✔️STEP 3:
Use a mild shampoo immediately after. This step can also be done before conditioning, based on your preference. Feel free to experiment with both ways to see what feels best for your hair!  

If you have dry or damaged hair, however, you may want a more intense treatment.  Read on to find out how.

✔️STEP 1:

Make sure it’s in a liquid state! Coconut oil is solid until it reaches 76 degrees, so you’ll need to submerge the jar or run it under some warm water to bring it to its liquid state.

✔️STEP 2:

Using about 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, start off by applying at your roots, and work it in really well while making your way down to the ends. 

✔️STEP 3:

Put your hair up in a shower cap (if you don’t have a shower cap, don’t worry, you can use a plastic bag!) Leave in for a minimum of 1 hour, keep it on overnight for best results! The longer the better.

✔️STEP 4:

All that’s left to do now is lather, rinse and repeat! Wash off your hair using a mild shampoo or COCO & CO. beauty bar.  Style as usual, and enjoy your beautiful tresses.

Repeat these steps once a week or as-needed!

No, it doesn't even compare!

Most of the oils on the market aren’t actually good for you.

Low quality processes strip away most of the essential nutrients beneficial for beauty use. They smell bad, they’re thick and greasy, and they contain impurities that harm your skin—not to mention clog your pores.

COCO & CO. Raw Coconut Oil is the purest and most potent coconut oil you can get your hands on, and it's made just for beauty!  It’s crystal clear like spring water when liquid and silky white when solid. It’s light and non-greasy, with no odor or impurities—and it preserves all the essential nutrients your skin and hair need to stay healthy & beautiful.

Our own special extraction process elevates our raw coconut oil into a league of its own—so pure it's been lab tested up to 800% more pure than other "high quality" virgin coconut oil!

Yes, our products are gentle and safe to use for the whole family! 

COCO & CO. raw coconut oil is pure and 100% raw, natural and organic. We do not use harmful chemicals to extract the oil.

Our special extraction process results in the purest raw coconut oil in the world. COCO & CO. does not contain impurities that can clog your pores or are harmful to your skin & hair.

Because of the purity, we use more coconuts than other brands.

We use our own extraction process that takes much, much longer to produce.

That means our product is more potent and pure, which is a good thing for your hair and skin!

We use our own unique extraction process that produces amazing results.

With up to 10 times less moisture content and no impurities, it has a long shelf life, no rancidity, discoloration or strong odors. It’s crystal clear when liquid & pure silk white when solid.

We start with young, freshly harvested certified organic coconuts no older than three days. The coconuts are carefully monitored not to exceed 104°F. The resulting coconut milk emulsion is chilled to 10° C to pull the oil. Then, the cooled milk is subjected to a special process to separate the milk,  impurities and the oil.

The process is painstakingly repeated quite a few times, but the end result is quite worth it!

It's both!

Because of its purity, it is a crystal clear liquid at temperatures 76°F and above. At cooler room temperatures, it will be a silky, immaculate snow-white solid.

Based on your preference, you can refrigerate it until solid and then keep it in a cool area and it will stay a solid — or submerge the jar in warm water to convert it to liquid form!

It stays fresh and usable no matter how many times it goes between liquid and solid forms.

Light as a feather and absorbant like no other! You won't get that greasy feeling you would using other body oils here. Our Raw Coconut Oil penetrates quickly without leaving your skin feeling greasy!
