Coconut oil is a great way to get thick strong hair and has been used for thousands of years all around the world. Coconut oil protects and moisturises the hair which adds growth and thickness, the fatty acids and protein in coconut oil protects split ends and prevents hair from breakage. The best way to use coconut oil is gently heat in a jar or over the hob until it's warm and gently massage into the hair and scalp for a few minutes and leave in over night and wash out the next day, it's oils and vitamins are all natural and this is actually a better and healthier option than using conditioner, you can buy coconut oil pretty much anywhere I usually order mine on ebay as it's only £4 for half a litre.
Almond oil was discovered by Egyptians, they were obsessed with their appearance and having long shiny hair, they discovered almond oil was an amazing hair treatment and it's still being used now for hair remedies. Almond oil stimulates the hair follicles promoting growth and a head of strong healthy hair. Similar to the coconut oil treatment heat over the hob for a warm consistency and massage into the scalp and hair, leave in over night or as long as you feels best.
Remember washing your hair everyday actually drains the natural oils and leaves you with dry brittle hair as there are so many chemicals in shampoo and conditioner, also using hot water on your hair everyday can cause brittle hair and split ends.
Brushing your hair as soon as you get out of the shower is a giant NO this causes breakage and makes the hair weak, the best thing to use is a comb or just leave it until it's dry and then comb it, I never really brush my hair I always use a comb as I find brushing it is way to rough and is very damaging. When you dry your hair with a towel don't be to rough and gently dry so you are not pulling on the hair and ripping it out, also if you dry with a hair dryer or use any kind of heat on your hair use heat defence spray or a serum to protect your hair from breaking off.
