My friends over at the Beauty Brains blog have been talking for a while about using coconut oil as a pre-conditioner. Basically the idea is that the oil soaks into the hair shaft and makes the hair less brittle. It is an interesting idea, and one that has some evidence behind it. So I thought I’d give it a try.
There is after all, only one to find out if a coconut oil shampoo pretreatment works, and that is to pretreat your hair with coconut oil and shampoo it.
I let the camera roll while I was at it so this is a faithful record of exactly what I was thinking at the time. It will particularly appeal to people who like hearing me say umm a lot, but I hope you can put up with that.
Here is the blog post that inspired it.
