(Coconut oil might strip the color from your hair). If you are using this treatment for regrowth, apply it twice a week, massaging in circular moves, leave it on for 2hrs and wash it out.
For longer hair, shinier or richness, run it through your hair using a wet brush, put it up in a bun, put a shower cap or a towel and leave it on as much as you want. If you can, you can sleep with it. For me, sleeping or staying with my hair wet for more then 1h, will give me major headache.
