Score Healthy Locks By Labor Day With This Exotic Oil

Sun damage, humidity, and dryness are no match for this restorative hair oil. 

One of our biggest beauty hangups is dry, damaged hair. Aside from all the coloring, heat-styling and teasing that we normally do, we also spent the long July fourth weekend frolicking in salty waves and mushing our strands into every kind of bun imaginable. Our poor hair! It must feel like rockabilly singer Eddie Cochran hit the nail on the head when he crooned, “There ain’t no cure for the summertime blues.” 

But, fortunately for our seriously distressed locks, we have found a solution: I.C.O.N.’s nourishing India Oilwhich some subscribers will be receiving in their July Birchboxes!

Currently Obsessed With…Oils!

You may have noticed lots of your favorite brands coming out with oil-based products in the last year, and for good reason. These products are a far cry from the greasy, dirty kind of oil that clogs your pores and weighs down your hair. In fact, these oils are all about working with your skin and hair type to either cleanse or hydrate. My favorite cleansing oils fit the old adage “like attracts like” by pulling out the bad oils and leaving skin with plenty of moisture, not stripped. My must-have hydrating oils sink in immediately and are much longer-lasting than moisturizers. Check out a few of my all-time faves below.

Months ago, my best friend told me to get my hands on some virgin coconut oil from Wholefoods. She’s been coloring her hair for years and swears that applying this natural remedy to strands overnight restores her dye-damaged hair back to the softness she has as a little girl.

I’ve been looking for a major moisture boost ever since I colored my hair for the first time a couple weeks ago. My virgin hair had been bouncy and shiny and I have not enjoyed my new dry and brittle texture. So I took my friend’s advice and popped for some virgin coconut oil and all I can say is wow. She was right. If your hair is feeling a little (or a lot!) on the parched side, follow these s simple directions once a month and reap the benefits of added moisture, protection from breakage, and possibly even hair growth!
