It’s no secret that I love Tropical Traditions, but as I have previously written in this post, I am always a little wary of trying anything new on my hair. However, I am still on my healthy journey and still in search for the perfect (and non-toxic) solution for my hair. Tropical Traditions offers an organic coconut hair treatment, and I was (reluctantly) willing to try…
Boy, was I glad I did. I need nothing else. My hair is PERFECTLY wonderful, soft and shiny because of it. I haven’t used, nor will I use, any of my other hair products since I started using this. The thing is that I haven’t needed to.
One thing that surprised me is that the Tropical Traditions Organic Hair Treatment is 100% pure coconut oil. That’s it. Nothing else. But it’s slightly different than they other oils, meaning it has a higher protein amount, and is made especially for hair application. Because of coconut oil’s composition, it is highly bondable to hair proteins, making it able to penetrate inside the hair shaft.
My hair is super dry, as you may already know, so a little oil would be beneficial, right? But how could someone with normal or even oily hair benefit from this hair treatment? What if I told you that it’s made for ALL hair types? According to Tropical Traditions, it is! I can’t verify that in any way, as I am the only one who uses it in the family, but I can certainly see how it could be. For one, my hair does not look or feel oily after application. The coconut oil is quickly absorbed into my hair, leaving it soft, manageable, smooth and UN-FRIZZY (yes!). No trace of oiliness on my hair or scalp.
What I usually do is get a very small amount, rub it between my fingers until it liquifies (it depends at what temperature you store it if it will be liquified or solidified), and then run it throughly through nearly every strand of hair. Sometimes I need a dab more, and almost every time I reach in a third time to moisturize my feet, elbows and hands. Again, my skin does not feel oily afterwards nor do I smell of coconuts. (I like that coconutty smell, but maybe some of you wouldn’t).
You don’t have to use it as a leave-in conditioner like I did. You can also use it as a pre-wash treatment (before shampooing your hair) just before showering or for deeper conditioning and dry scalp, you can leave it in your hair overnight.
The cost is a little frightening, but I can sheepishly admit that I have paid that price (and more) for hair products in the recent past back in the day. The difference is that this is SAFE. I will also venture to guess that this glass jar will last me well over a year if I just used it for my hair. It’s a good thing that Tropical Traditions coconut oil has a long shelf-life due to their high antioxidant content.
