Slicked Back Style
Gigi Hadid is a low-bun loyalist, often spotted backstage or on errands in the low-maintenance style. Coating your strands in coconut oil and disguising your hair treatment with a low bun for a day can be the perfect damage repair for your hair.

Besides a go-to secret style to keep your hair mask incognito, you need a good product. Pure coconut oil obviously doesn't work like your regular styling gel and will not exactly add body to your hair or help style a big blowout. It will, however, give you sleek, smooth strands when used as a mask or moisture treatment.
For colored hair with lots of face-framing pieces, the top half of your mane will sustain the most damage over time. Give it some extra love by piling the coconut oil on the upper half of your hair, then slipping it into a half-up style. Your strands get quenched, and no one is the wiser that your hairstyle is hiding a nurturing treatment.
Victoria’s Secret Angel Josephine Skriver calls it a miracle and Gigi Hadid swears it’s the reason behind her gorgeous hair. Coconut oil isn’t just a trend in the beauty world; it’s a go-to natural multitasker that is here to stay.
It’s no longer a secret that coconut oil nurtures strands damaged by heat and color. But you can secretly use the treatment in slicked-back styles that hide your hair mask, as Gigi revealed to W Magazine.
“When I have time off, I do coconut oil in my hair and I just put it in a bun and don’t wash it,” Gigi told W Magazine last year.
The more time coconut oil spends in your hair, the better. It doesn’t just stimulate hair growth, it also prevents breakage and is a solution for split ends. It even hydrates your hair and keeps it from getting rough and unmanageable. Here’s how you can get away with wearing this strengthening and softening treatment out in public.
