Verdict: Coconut Oil is a WINNER!

I decided to use coconut oil to prepoo my daughter’s hair and followed a natural hair regimen I found online (see: http://tropie7189.blogspot.com/2011/06/natural-hair-regimen-and-pre-poo.html). I also made sure to have her sit under the dryer for about 15 minutes (didn’t have a plastic shower cap so I had to use plastic wrap…just call me MacGyver). It turned out GREAT!!! Seriously, I think coconut oil is going to become a regular part of our hair care regimen. My daughter’s hair soaked up the coconut oil and it was much easier to detangle her hair. I’ll have to monitor her hair to ensure that the oil doesn’t attract too much dirt, lint, etc.


After I washed my daughter’s hair, I applied both Kinky Curly’s Knot Today and Gel. I then double-strand twisted her hair. This morning, I untwisted her hair and I put her hair into an afro puff. I also applied a small amount of coconut oil to each untwisted section. Beautiful! J


If you’re interested, here’s a quick how-to to style afro-puffs: http://www.ehow.com/how_8451414_instructions-afro-puffs.html. I usually twist my daughter’s hair rather than braid it but braids work nicely as well.

    you posted this at 6:18am and had already done her hair? What time did you get her out of bed?

  2. Hi there, I think that the blogger time stamp must be on West Coast time or something. For example, it's 8:03PM EST, I bet the time stamp to my current comment will say 5:03PM. Let's see...

  4. Yup, that's what happened. I want my daughter's hair to look nice but even I won't wake her up that early! :)
