However, if you want to get the most out of coconut oil, I would recommend you to use pure organic coconut oil instead of coconut oil shampoo.
This is because you never know which type of coconut oil the manufacturer put into the shampoo.
It's quite hard to specify the exact amount of the coconut oil mixed in the shampoo.
The benefits of coconut oil vary from one to another type of the oil.
However, with pure organic coconut oil, you can absolutely get the most out of it.
Personally, I would stick with pure organic coconut oil. I think it's worth using rather than coconut oil shampoo and other coconut oil related products.
I love virgin coconut oil because the result is wonderful.
Anyway, if you want to try on shampoo, remember to look carefully at the ingredient on the bottle.
It would be good if the product contains coconut oil as the main ingredient. That means you will get more nutrients from the product.
And most importantly, it's worth paying.
Okay, I would like to share how I treat my hair with virgin coconut oil at home, step-by-step. Here we go...
How to Treat Your Hair with Coconut Oil
Take a tablespoon or two of pure coconut oil, and put
it into a small bowl. Take more of the oil if you have long hair.
If you have a shoulder-length hair, about two tablespoons of coconut oil would be enough.
- Steep it separately in another larger bowl with hot water. Avoid it spills over into the small bowl. Stir the oil to make it melt quicker.
- Once the coconut oil is melted and warm enough, spoon it and drip it on your scalp. It would be better if you separate your hair wide enough so that you can see the scalp. This is to allow most of the oil spreading on the scalp evenly.
- Gently massage your scalp while dripping the oil. Make sure you do it evenly. It should take about 2-5 minutes to complete.
- Pour the rest of the oil in your palms. Rub it with both palms. Coat your hair with the oil by running your hands along the hair, from the root to the end. Make sure the oil thoroughly coats your hair as you go.
- Gather your hair and twist it. Then, hold it firmly on top of your head with hairpins or hairclips.
Soak a small towel into the water in the larger bowl where the water
should now be warm enough. Wring the towel until it's merely damp.
And wrap it around your head. This helps steam your hair and scalp, and activates the blood circulation in your head so the oil can nourish your hair deeply.
- Leave it for an hour or two . Then, remove the towel and wash your hair with gentle shampoo and follow with conditioner (if you want). In fact, you don't necessarily need hair conditioner because your hair now becomes very soft after steaming.
By the way, what about coconut oil shampoo?
Are you looking for it?
Good. I hear you say "yes".
Okay, here's the tip how to choose the best one.
How to Buy Coconut Oil ShampooWell, I can only say that it's quite difficult to know the actual amount of coconut oil in the commercial hair products, unless you are a manufacture owner.
It's really hard to identify the level of each ingredient contained in coconut oil shampoo.
However, the list on the ingredient label may help you.
The easy way to tell if it is a good one is to take a look to at the ingredient label on the bottle. And see if the product contains coconut oil as a major ingredient.
Normally, the most common item should be listed on the top of the list. If you see the 'Coconut Oil' item listed near the end of the list, it is possible that this product gives you fewer amounts of coconut oil than others.
How to Make It at HomeIf you're looking for the coconut oil shampoo, I suggest choosing a reputable one that is 100% pure organic.
Use it as the most common ingredient, and you'll be never disappointed.
Anyway, if you have time, a homemade shampoo might be a better choice for you.
Making it at home ensures that you'll definitely get 100% natural shampoo, whereas many commercial products don't.
Moreover, you can save money from buying typical commercial hair products (remember, you can't tell if they are 100% good).

Can't Find the VCO?All in all, coconut oil shampoo could be beneficial for you if you can't find pure organic coconut oil in your area of living. In some countries, it is easier to find the shampoo in the market than the pure oil like virgin coconut oil (VCO).
However, it would be better for you to use coconut oil shampoo rather than others that contain harsh chemicals. At least, coconut oil still gives you the healthy nutrients more or less.
Coconut Oil ShampooCoconut oil is well known for the health benefits it provides for your hair. While rubbing pure coconut oil in your hair like a conditioner works wonders, wouldn’t it be nice if you could get the conditioning benefits of coconut oil while also cleaning your hair?
Good news! The increasingly popular coconut oil shampoo gives your hair the sleek shine and elasticity that coconut oil does while also leaving it feeling fresh and clean.
While other conditioners can give you the tangle-free hair you desire, coconut oil shampoo does this while also improving the overall health of your hair and simultaneously cleaning it which regular conditioners just don’t do. Did I mention that it leaves your hair smelling amazing? Coconut scented shampoos are some of the best smelling shampoos available on the market.
If you want to smell like a commoner, then go right ahead and continue using you’re typical, chemical-ridden shampoos. But if you want to smell like royalty – like me, the Coconut Oil King! – then hurry and get some coconut oil shampoo immediately.
