Coconut Oil Hair Treatment with Egg Yolks and Honey

Coconut Oil Hair Treatment with Egg Yolks and Honey Follow Me on Pinterest

Want an easy way to give your hair some TLC? This coconut oil hair treatment is a great conditioner and is perfect for all hair types. It only consists of three ingredients, all of which have long been regarded as great hair conditioners. My husband tends to have dry hair and a dry scalp and this is a great way to condition both. After we did the treatment, he said that his hair felt smoother and softer, plus it really helped reduce the frizz. Our goal is to do this treatment once a month.

First up, we have coconut oil. Coconut oil has been used for hundreds of years in the tropics as a hair conditioner. Coconut oil hair treatments are highly regarded and regularly undertaken in these areas. For the specific reasons why coconut oil is beneficial for the hair, I encourage you to read this great article by Brian and Marianita Shilhavy. In the States, coconut oil has recently started to gain popularity as a hair treatment.

The next ingredient is raw honey. Honey has been used for all sorts of things throughout the centuries, and its use on hair is nothing new. Honey is a natural conditioner and is a great way to add shine to your hair, because it helps attract and hold moisture. The reason it works is because it helps smooth the cuticles of the hair, which makes it softer and shinier. Honey is great to use on color treated hair for these reasons. It can help keep the color looking fresh and vibrant. Also, due to the antimicrobial aspects of raw honey, it’s a great cleanser for irritated scalps.

Lastly, we have the egg. Eggs are full of protein and help smooth frizzy, damaged hair. The yolks are a rich source of vitamins, including vitamin D, which has been shown to promote hair growth (you need to make sure you’re getting enough vitamin D in your diet to ensure healthy hair). Eggs are a natural conditioner and can help your hair feel softer and smoother.

The following recipe is perfect for the average man’s head of hair. If you have longer hair, then you’ll need to double, triple, or even quadruple the recipe.

  1. This is very helpful and this treatment seems ideal for curing many hair issues! Personally, I’m too lazy to get into the kitchen and whip up my own natural remedy, I usually go the easy way and use some Pro Naturals Moroccan Argan oil after each shower. Really shines and de-frizzes hair, hair loss is gone too! Too bad I can only get the stuff online (beyas.ca), I love it so much that it’s running out fast!

    Kudos!

  3. Tried this without the egg, and it was a total flop. My hair is very dry at the ends and oily at the scalp, so I put it on the ends first, then massaged upwards, but not all the way to the roots.

    I rinsed for a very very long time, them shampooed twice. My hair is still disgustingly visibly oily. It looked like I used too much gel when it first dried, now about 6 hours later it looks like I haven’t showered in a week. Also my neck and back are starting to break out.

    The only plus side is that my hands feel wonderful, and every time I touch my hair it’s like putting a velvety soft lotion on them. Lol.

    • Hi Michelle – I’m sorry you had a bad experience with it! :( It always works so great for my hair, but I guess everyone is different! I wonder if you have a sensitivity to coconut oil? It’s not super common, but I have heard of some people who react to coconut oil. Again, sorry it was a flop for you! :(

  4. Thanks for the recipe, Jessica. It’s cold and windy here these days, and my hair was getting dry, dull and lifeless as a result. I did include several drops of lavender oil and the overall scent is very nice. If your recipe is followed exactly, the consistency and “slatherability” is quite good. It runs a bit, but nothing the plastic cap didn’t solve. As I rinsed, my hair hair felt thick and slightly gummy, so I kept rinsing for about 5 or 6 minutes until my hair felt normal, but quite good. Thumbs up, and thank you again!

  5. Tried this tonight. I used 100% pure honey. Idk if that’s different from raw honey. I got a little nervous with the mixture in my hair. It started to feel real hard like beeswax. So I smashed an over ripped avocado and lathered it on top of the coconut/honey/yolk mix. I let sit with cap and towel wrap for 2 hours. Just washed it out. Hair is less frizzy, more shiny, and relatively soft for not putting any product in my hair after rinsing the mix off. I’m going to put some Shea butter on my ends and style tomorrow. I’ ll check back in. Thanks,

    • Hi Tara – Sorry to hear about the bad salon experience! Been there before and it sucks! :( I don’t think you’ll go bald. This mixture really helps calmy my hair down when it gets dry and frizzy. I love it during the winter, especially, because that seems to be when my hair goes nuts! Hope it works for you! :)

    • Hi Heidi – You know, I am not sure. I would imagine it would be very nourishing, but I really have no experience with dreads, so I can’t say for sure. Sorry I’m no help! :(

  15. Can somebody help? I made a sugar scrub (coconut oil-melted, and sugar)and used it on my skin in the shower, and it made my skin AMAZINGLY SOFT :D but the downside was that it got my bathtub all oily and really dangerous. I need something to help take this oil of my bathtub floor, because its really slippery. I wanna do this before the morning, cause my mum is gonna take a shower and I dont want her to slip. Help?

    Posted 07/23/13

    • Hi Rebecca – Any shower cleaner or just plain soap will remove the oil from the tub. Whenever I use my coconut oil body scrubs in the shower, I use a little shampoo on the bottom of the tub and it lifts the coconut oil right off. Hope that helps!

    • Baking soda will get the residue out of the tub/shower and leave it sparkling.

  18. Alright, my hair dried and the “dandruff” is gone now. It’s also not a tangled mess anymore. Buuuuut it’s also not any softer, shinier, or less frizzy. I think I’ll try just coconut oil next time.
