What Is The Coconut Oil Hair Challenge?
The Coconut Oil Hair Challenge is a three-month hair growth challenge with one ingredient —— coconut oil. The creation of the challenge is credited to Hairlicious Inc. The challenge consists of three different levels: basic, intermediate, and advance. (Each level differs by how frequent you would like to incorporate coconut oil into your hair regimen).
The basic level requires participants to apply coconut oil to their hair and massage it into their scalp prior to washing their hair. They can complete this step 20 minutes, 1 hour, or the night before they wash their hair. This step is to be completed at least once a week.
The intermediate level includes the basic level. Participants are also required to 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil to their choice of deep conditioner. This step is to be completed at least once a week.
The advance level includes the basic and intermediate level. Participants are also required to massage coconut oil into their scalp 2-3 times a week (without rinsing the oil out).
