Coconut Oil and Brown Sugar Treatment For Hair

CaptureWe all know the story behind virgin coconut oil: it heals, mends, cures you name it, it does it. Coconut oil is also known as cocos nucifera and it is basically white fat made by pressing coconut kernels. We always suggest that when making the decision to purchase coconut oil, always buy organic, cold-pressed, pure, unrefined, extra virgin coconut oil.

For those of you who have sensitive, dry, itchy, flaky scalp…listen up. Deep treat your curls with this DIY coconut oil treatment, the coconut oil can soothe your irritated scalp. It can also help reduce scalp and hair dryness not to mention this recipe is quick, easy, and all natural improving  your over all hair health.

1. Warm up a jar of your coconut oil in a bowl of hot water. Do this until it liquefies.

2. Part your hair into sections and apply the oil.

3. Give lots of attention to your ends and scalp.

4. Take a scoop of brown sugar. Combine that sugar with about 2 tbsp. of conditioner.

5. Massage it into your scalp. No scrubbing!


6. Let it sit for an hour.

7. Rinse it out and condition with your favorite conditioner.

You can repeat this every time you wash. Okay, so you are probably like “No ma’am. She just made that up!” We know that even the thought of brown sugar on our hair sounds a bit off, but people actually use it in their hair as a natural exfoliate.

You didn’t hear this from me, but on Pinterest. There is a rumor that’s going around saying that brown sugar is a natural straightener, but we know that might not be true.

Is it supposed to make it grow?

Ab Ster

why would u exfoliate your hair

LeeCynthia Franklin

Probably to open up the pores in your scalp and have the oil penetrate it.

Sugar on my scalp? HELL NO!

Krista Kinchen

Ok, now this is just too much

Shadae Younge

Stop the madness! It either grows, or it doesn’t lol

I use edible coconut oil in my hair. Some ppls hair doesn’t grow because they grease the scalp and clog up the pores. I exfoliate with a vinegar rinse. It opens the pores right on up so your.follicles can push on out

Oh this is interesting. I’ll look it up but my hubby will give me the stank eye if I use brown sugar in my hair…that’s for his sweet potatoes lol (I already use the eggs for protein treatment :P)

Sugar does exfoliate the skin. I wash my face with goat milk soap then use regular granulated sugar to exfoliate my skin without using harsh scrubs.. I don’t know about brown sugar.. my guess is because it’s softer and dissolves easier it won’t leave sugar in the hair as regular sugar may.

Kai Solomon

Yes, I’ve used brown sugar on my scalp and I’ve had no problems. Great exfoliate! Will definitely try using the oil first.

Tiffa Owens

Brown sugar acts as a exfoliation to the scalp which is helpful if done gently to not scratch the scalp
