By Good Hair & Beauty Diaries - Monday, June 04, 2012



If you missed the last Coconut Oil Challenge that started at the beginning of the year don’t fret! Good Hair Diaries is hosting another coconut oil challenge that will allow you to reach your hair goals.

This challenge runs from 1 June 2012 to 31 December 2012

What you need:
Pure Coconut Oil or Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

Where to buy it:
If you live in South Africa like me, you can find coconut oil at the following places.
  • Clicks
  • Dischem
  • All Health Food Stores
  • Indian Grocers
Rules:
  1. Apply coconut oil to the scalp at least 3 times a week.
  2. Apply coconut oil from root to tip at least 3 times a week.
  3. Massage scalp at least 3 times a week.
  4. Do a hot oil treatment with coconut oil at least once a month
  5. Seal with coconut oil
This challenge runs from 1 June 2012 to 31 December 2012

Anyone can join this challenge. I recommend that everyone take before and after pictures of the their hair to track progress. Remember that coconut oil guards against protein loss and is great for dandruff and dry scalp.

Leave a comment below if you’re planning on joining, and tell us what your hair goal is.

Have a Good Hair Day!!!

  1. I'm in. Irony, finished my last bottle over the weekend, need to stock up again. Lol. My hair is NL (and not even full NL, front sides are still a little shorter than chin length. My goal is full SL by end of this year. I know it's more than possible.

    2. I want my hair to be healthy. I admit to not taking good care of my hair I work with a food and beverage company that requires us to wear a cap so I usually put globs of hair gel in my hair and throw a ponytail in it. as can be expected my hair breaks off when i comb it. To be quite honest, I hate my hair and I'm very self concious about it. I want to have a better relationship with my hair becasue I have a daughter with a similar texture of hair as mine. I don't want her to hate anything about herself so I want to fix my attitude with my hair. Help a sistah out!

    3. You've come to the right place. Start by building a hair regimen. If you live in Cape Town, SA we can meet for a consultation where I help you get your hair on the right track.

  2. I'm also using virgin coconut oil not only for my hair but also for my skin. But I'm using a different brand. But I do think it's as good as what you're using. For me, there would be no other way to take good care of our hair and skin aside from this.

  3. Any brand of coconut oil is just fine as long as it's pure with no additives. I use a brand by the name of Crede, but I also grab clicks brand when I'm running low. It's all good.

    1. Hot Oil Treatment - Warm the oil, applying it to whole head and cover with a plastic cap or cling wrap for about 15 minutes.

      Sealing ends - Moisturize your hair with a water based moisturizer and put the oil over it to seal it in.

      I hope this helps ;)

  6. Thanks Kavuli this is really helpfull. I have always put oil (cocnut, sesame castor or olive) in my hair and as you said I do remember when I was young my mum showed me how to do hot oil treatment but as you get older you just tend to drift away.

  7. Hi Kavuli, I have a bit of a dilemma. I want to start the challenge but I’m not too sure where to begin. My hair is damaged and uneven in length, would you recommend that I cut it to even it out first before I begin with the challenge? I really hate having to cut my hair, isn't there some other way:(
