Coconut oil - a gentle hair treatment!

Hello everyone!

This morning I woke up with amazing hair - it was so soft, shiny, easy to comb (ends were just perfect) but still a bit voluminous and formed; I am really so excited to write you about this product:

Dabur Vatika Enriched Coconut Oil
I've bought this coconut oil last week in an asian supermarket in Vienna (22. district, Tokiostrasse); I haven't planned to buy it since I was actually planing to get some jasmine tea and oyster sauce, but I've seen a cosmetics corner with lots of original henna form India and some hair products from Middle East... and that's when I saw this product.
I always knew that coconut oil is good for your hair, but the thing was that you can't really find it in regular shops in Austria - you have to rely on eBay, Amazon and many different online shops. This product wasn't expensive (around 4€ for 200ml) and I really wanted to give it a try. In meantime I was reading customers' reviews and since they were good - I was convinced.

This hair treatment is made of herbs, henna, lemon and coconut oil. It is desirable to be used 2-3 times per week, but I'd say that once per week is absolutely fine for normal and slightly dry hair. If you have really damaged hair, maybe you should try Argan Oil or Macadamia Oil for that, but coconut oil could help, too.
On the package it says that it gives you volume and thickness - well, it gives you a bit of texture, but don't expect a Wow-effect out of it - it's still an oil and oils are heavy for your hair.

How to use:
1. Put the oil on your scalp and on hair in the evening and leave it overnight or
2. do the same in the morning and leave it on for the whole day or
3. Put it 1-2 hours before washing your hair

After me using it for the first time, I just realized that my hair is much softer than usual, I could manage my bad haircut ends (which I am going to repare at my hairdresser's soon), it had still its own form and it smelled like henna and lemon (no sign of coconut, haha). I really liked it!
The only "bad" thing I've read about this is that it can make your hair reflection a bit red (there was a girl that did a YouTube review showing that - see here) and that's because of henna - hm, nothing happened to me, to be honest. :) but I'm still not willing to use it every time I wash my hair.

So, in the end, I'd like to say - it's worth trying!
