Natural Hair Care: How to Oil Rinse - ClassyCurlies

  1. Wash your hair with your favorite shampoo or co-wash and rinse
  2. Squeeze your hair of extra water
  3. Select your favorite oil and apply it to your hair and scalp, focusing on the ends. Oil can be poured directly on to the hair, applied with a color application bottle or with the hands
  4. Rinse hair with warm water
  5. Apply your normal conditioner
  6. Rinse with cool water
  7. Apply a leave-in conditioner
  8. Style as desired
When using this method, I used Honey Baby Naturals shampoo and conditioner and coconut oil for the rinse.
