Nourishing Your Locks

Coconut oil is one of the most widely used natural products for hair care. It is an all-natural ingredient whose composition, rich in vitamins and minerals, offers so many health benefits as well as in cosmetics.

Many people living in coastal areas of the world, especially in the tropics, where coconuts grow in abundance, use coconut oil to improve the health and appearance of their hair.

Not surprisingly, it is used in the production of dozens of cosmetic products, both for skin care and hair care.

Below we list the main uses and benefits of coconut oil for hair.

Hair loss. Coconut oil has been used for centuries in India for hair care, especially for the prevention of hair loss. One such remedy is to boil sage leaves in coconut oil. Let cool and apply to the scalp to strengthen the hair and prevent hair loss.

Another remedy is to mix water, lemon juice and olive oil and apply to the hair to stop it from falling out. This remedy helps to thoroughly clean the scalp, stimulating hair regrowth.

Damaged hair. Using coconut oil helps reduce protein loss in hair. Being rich in lauric acid, coconut oil penetrates hair due to its low molecular weight and strengthens it. Use the oil as a pre-shampoo or conditioner.

Dry hair. Coconut oil has a high ability to retain moisture in the hair, as it does not evaporate easily. For this very reason, it keeps hair moisturized and soft, preventing it from becoming dry and brittle.

Dandruff. The fatty acids in coconut oil are powerful anti-dandruff agents. Apply coconut oil to your hair regularly to eliminate dandruff forever. To enhance its effect, mix it with a little castor oil.

Hair tonic. Coconut oil helps restore tone and shine to hair. Prepare a lukewarm mixture of coconut oil and lavender essential oil and apply to the scalp. Leave on overnight, then rinse hair the next morning.
