The Coconut Oil Bleaching Method
Coconut oil is an all natural beauty miracle for beauty and health.
Applied topically or ingested, there are literally dozens of different benefits coconut oil
provides. I have been sleeping with coconut oil in my hair as a pre poo
treatment twice a week for over two years now and it has left my hair
soft, shiny and more manageable.
Coconut oil can help with hair bleaching!As a girl who loves her long hair blonder than it naturally is, but
doesn't like the damage that usually comes along with it, I was all for
learning about this coconut oil bleaching method.
Coconut oil leaves bleached hair feeling super soft and much more
healthy looking. Using coconut oil on bleached hair can help hair that
feels crunch or hay like feel significantly softer with consistent use
and even make the hair more manageable.
The science behind it says that coconut oil is a natural chelating
agent which chelates the damaging iron and copper produced by the
chemical reaction which happens when you use peroxide on your hair.
How to use coconut oil for bleached hair1. Coat all of your hair with melted coconut oil root to tip, at night before bed.
2. Cover it with a towel or shower cap and go to sleep.
3. Bleach hair as usual the next day with oil still in the hair.
What does it do?The idea is the night of oil-soaking replicates the buildup of
natural oils in your hair and protects both your scalp and the hair
itself from damage causing bleach. Some women have found that using oil
helps their bleach to process faster than it would without it. Adding
coconut oil to the bleaching process maybe even help prevent the burning
and itching feeling that usually occurs with the process.
I am super excited to try this coconut oil method before I go to the
salon next time to get my hair dyed. Anything that is natural and will
help with damage I am all for!
