Coconut Oil For Hair - An Overview By Tony W Watson
Reading through the fine print behind you shampoo and conditioner, you will find that coconut oil is mentioned in the list of ingredients. This is because it is laced with a number of nutrients, which not only make your hair strong but also prevent the strands from breaking from the roots. The best part is that coconut oil will also keep it from getting gray before its time which means that you will walk around with a head full of thick shiny hair even when you're 65! Coconut oil is very popular in many parts of the world but especially so in India where you can find it in almost every household!
Lauric acid is one such component that contributes towards the popularity of this particular oil as it has the ability to push through the surface of each strand and seep into the shaft. This way, it nourishes the hair from the inside out and since it is 100% natural, it doesn't come attached with any harmful side effects whatsoever! The Vitamin E in the oil will spread across your scalp and replenish the missing nutrients but at the same time, keep the roots healthy as well. Thankfully, the oil has a refreshing smell so you don't have to worry about repulsing people every time you step out of your house.
Shockingly, most people, especially women, can't even tell when their hair needs some TLC so if you fall under this category, keep reading. If you have split ends or if the ends of your hair are always dry, you need to take action, pronto. You may be in this situation because the shampoo that you use doesn't contain coconut oil or that it is primarily soap-based. If that is that case, you can either apply coconut oil before you sleep and wash it off first thing in the morning or you can mix your shampoo with the oil every time you wash your hair. Alternatively, you can also apply it onto your scalp before you wash your hair.
Chances are that if your hair is dry, your scalp will be too and you know what that means, right? You probably have dandruff. Now don't make a face, it is nothing to be ashamed of because as long as you have coconut oil within easy access, this problem will be done away with as well! In this case, it is recommended that you have somebody massage the oil onto your scalp every alternate day of the week and if you are careful about sticking to this routine, this natural oil will keep your scalp from flaking and yearning for natural oils. If the oil is hot, nothing like it! Coconut oil is used for maintaining healthy hair, healthy skin, healthy digestive system and helps with weight loss.
