Best Hair Oil- Review & Giveaway
Remember back in the 80s when we used to think VO5 was the best hair oil? I remember those days of pouffy hair and dousing my locks with toxic chemicals…but those days are gone and most of us (hopefully) have moved on to a safer haircare regimen (and smaller hair!)
I’ve been a huge fan of coconut oil for a few years now, ever since I found out it was so incredibly good for you. Back in the day, coconut oil was portrayed as an unhealthy, saturated fat, but those of us “in the know” realize how truly miraculous this oil is.
It has hundreds of uses. Here’s a sampling of a few of them:
- Use as face and body moisturizer
- Take 3-4 tablespoons for daily energy and fat burning fuel
- Bake with it in place of unhealthy canola oil
- Safe oil for frying as it has a high heat point
- Use as a natural deodorant

Tropical Traditions Gold Label Coconut Oil Review
I was so thrilled to receive a jar of Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil to review. I’ve tried many brands of coconut oil before and I must say TT’s version is of the highest quality. It has a slightly coconuty, almost smoky flavor.
You really need to be careful of the coconut oil you purchase because not all companies take care with the production and manufacturing of the product as TT does. TT’s coconut oil come from family farms in the Phillippines using traditional methods passed down for generations. This is the sort of coconut oil I want to be using!
So after all these years of eating coconut oil, baking, and cooking with it, it never once dawned on me to use it on my hair. I’d done olive oil hair treatments before with incredible results, so I thought, why not give coconut oil a try?
If you decide to do a coco oil hair treatment, here are a few things to remember:
- Apply the coconut oil to your hair, paying special attention to the roots (I’ll tell you why in a minute)
- Apply the oil to dry hair
- Leave on for 30 minutes, an hour, or even overnight for some serious deep conditioning
- Cover hair with a shower cap or wrap your head in saran wrap to lock in heat to condition even more
- When rinsing, shampoo hair twice, then condition as normal
So why in the world would you want to slather coconut oil all over your head?
Here’s why coconut oil works wonders for your hair. It:
- Strengthens hair
- Protects against hair loss due to the anti-microbial lauric acid it contains
- Rejuvenates hair with it’s Vitamin E content
- Moisturizes and conditions
- Is anti-dandruff due to the high fatty acid content
- Is a wonderful styler – just use caution not to use too much (less is more)
Doesn’t it make your hair greasy?
The answer is no! When you rinse it all out, you will be left with soft, shiny, grease-free hair!
I did this treatment yesterday and my results were exactly as expected. I didn’t think my hair would look so healthy, but it did! This treatment is great for dry hair especially. You can still do this treatment if you have oily hair, I just wouldn’t apply all the way to your roots. You can do this treatment once to twice a week to reap all the beautiful hair benefits.
