See all those flyaways? Coconut oil can help. There isn't really a trick to it. Just take a small, pea-sized amount in your palm, rub it through your fingertips and then smooth through hair. Flyaways be damned. Why Coconut oil? Shampooing strips your hair of its natural oils. Coconut oil replenishes those vital oils and leaves your hair feeling thick and shiny. It makes sense to then use it to control flyaways, but you can also use it as a hot oil treatment once a week.
