This product can be used as a deep treatment from root to tips or as a lighter, pre-shampoo conditioning treatment to reduce breakage and frizz.
To apply as a deep treatment, massage 1-2 Tablespoons of oil (2-4 dropperfuls) onto scalp and onto the entire length of hair. You may need more or less depending on the length and thickness of hair. If you have really thick hair, keep in mind it will be more difficult to wash out, so you can concentrate on the scalp and tips only, if necessary, or simply use less oil all over. You can leave this on anywhere from a few minutes, to a few hours.
For a lighter treatment, you can use 5-10 drops, half a dropperful, or a full dropperful depending on your needs. Simply rub into hands and lightly coat the hair, almost as you would apply a body lotion. You can focus on certain areas, such as around the face, that are prone to breakage or dryness. Or drip a few drops directly onto the scalp. This can be applied right before showering or as with the deep treatment, it can be left on for several hours.
If you are using a natural shampoo, the deep treatment, with more generous amounts of oil may make it necessary for you to shampoo twice. Other commercial shampoos (especially those with sodium lauryl sulfate) are usually somewhat harsh and although they will get the oil right out, they can often leave the hair stripped of naturally occurring protective oils that the scalp produces. (This is an important consideration if you are dealing with dry, brittle, or thinning hair!)
A light treatment with this oil should wash right out. If there is still oily residue in the hair, reduce the amount used for the light treatment the next time, or do a double shampoo.
