Coconut oil in your shampoo and conditioner?

So, as an experiment I added my favorite oil (coconut) to my shampoo, conditioner and leave-in.

Shampoo: Selsun Blue

Conditioner: TRESemme Anti-Sponge

Leave-In: Cantu Shea butter

While the Selsun works well for my dandruff, it can be a bit drying, which us why I dilute it, and more recently, add coconut oil.

The result? More moisturised hair and better looking hairstyles, in my opinion.

The conditioners (rinse-out and leave-in), felt fluffy and… Continue

My Hair Diary

I did the Big Chop three times starting in the year of 2010 and the third one was pretty recent. I decided to let my third chop be the last. I miss my curly big hair but i must say i hate when it get to the awkward stage. This stage is when your hair is long enough to put a piece on but not long enough to put it in a pony tail. This stage usually drives me to cut it all off again but I'm finding cool natural hairstyles for every length. I decided to…
