Ever wondered how your favourite celebrity never seems to have a bad hair day? Rain or shine, their hair worn up or down looks healthy with an almost unmatchable shine to it. That’s how I’ve always felt about Gigi Hadid’s hair. It looks thick, voluminous, and rounds off any outfit so well!
What Is Gigi Hadid’s Secret To Healthy Hair?
Coconut Oil. It’s as simple as it gets. But unlike the rest of us who do a quick champi or at the most leave the hair oil on overnight, Gigi goes a little overboard. In an interview with W Magazine, she said, “I do coconut oil in my hair and I just put it in a bun and don’t wash it. You can shower, obviously. But just keep your hair in a bun for like three days, keep the coconut oil in and just keep it up, and then at the end when you wash it all out.”
Of course, since it’s not easy to get oil out of your hair with just one shampoo session, Gigi recommends going in with shampoo twice and following it up with a conditioner.
Does It Work?
Of course, coconut oil is one of the best ingredients for the hair. A massage with this ingredient not only promotes blood circulation but also boosts hair growth, adds shine to the hair, reduces breakage, and makes the hair generally healthy overall.
But, three days is also a very long time to leave coconut oil in the hair. Experts recommend to leave it on between an hour to overnight for best results. Leaving any oil on for too long tends to attract dust and dirt. So try it out at your own risk!
The Best Coconut Oils
The Oriental Botanics Organic Coconut & Wheat Germ Oil For Hair & Skin manages frizzy hair and improves its texture over time.
The Organic Harvest Extra Virgin Coconut Oil has no preservatives or artificial ingredients and is the best thing you can apply to your hair.
The Parachute Pure Coconut Oil is something that’s been around for years and is probably the most trusted hair oil in the country today.
Though I don’t go overboard with my hair oiling like Gigi Hadid, I do include one coconut oil massage in my haircare routine every week.
