User Testimonial! "How O.N.E. Coconut Water Has Improved My Hair"
Thank you to o.n.e. of our fans, Mindy, for this great blog today!
You may think it sounds silly to say that using coconut water can benefit your hair! Isn't it
something you drink? Oh, yes, you do drink it and it has great results internally, but it also
can help externally. How do I know this? I have personally seen the results. I came to find
out about using coconut water on my hair, as I was going through a period of time when my hair was falling out more then I'd like to see, especially in the shower, it felt like sand paper
and the growth was rather slow. Another thing that bothered me, was that the day after I washed my hair, it would be full of knots and I would run my hands through my hair and too many hairs would come out. If you have similar experiences, then please read on. Even
if you have not, everyone can benefit from what I did.
I have to give credit to a wonderful lady, Tonya Zavasta, who is a raw food teacher and author.
I confided in her about the issue with my hair and she was the one who suggested I use coconut water in my hair. The more I thought about it, the more it made sense! Why would such a thing have value? Coconut water is full of minerals and that creates alkalinity and the hair needs minerals, like all of our body! I knew that this would work, even before I tried it.
Tonya informed me to pour the water on my hair and into my scalp and let it soak in for
an hour and then wash my hair. I did as she told me and had fantastic results, like I never
could have imagined!
Now before I go any further, I have to say that I pledge my allegiance to O.N.E. water, as
opposed to other companies on the market. I have tried the other companies, but I have
to say for FACT, that they don't taste as good. I am picky when in comes to the food
I eat and the products I use, as I am a raw food chef and an absolute purist.
Here is what I did and you are welcome to use this remedy. One disclaimer is, don't get discouraged if it takes more time to see results. I don't know your situation, so I can't
say for sure that you will have the same experience as I have. I do know, that I told my neighbor to use it in his hair and he has has similar results. I do not wash my hair every day
because I don't feel it is good to strip all the natural oils from your body and hair. Depending on how much hair you have, you can use 1 or 1/2 of the 11oz container of coconut water and pour it on your hair and then rub it in to your scalp. Take a towel and cover your hair so the hair stays wet and allow the water to soak in. Set a timer for 1 hour and then take the time to relax, read a book and listen to some soothing music. Then wash you hair in the shower as you normally do. I did this 3 times a week for a month and was thrilled with the results. My hair was softer (no more sand paper feel), there was less falling out and it was growing more!
On occasion, I actually leave the water in my hair without washing it out, but I do keep it covered for an hour so it can soak it.
Now, I use the coconut water in my hair for maintenance and/or if I feel that my hair is not growing the way I'd like it to. Give it a try! It can't hurt you in any way! It is all natural!
It is, after all the One Natural Experience!
