Tipped as the best hair conditioner to ever grace the shelves of all beauty and health stores nationwide, coconut oil is now a phenomenon for women and men around the country. This natural oil from the fruit that you drink in a Pina Colada, has been used for generations in tropical climates for its healing properties and natural conditioners. Helping damaged hair and encouraging growth, coconut oil offers many benefits that expensive conditioners can’t.
Here are just some of the different things coconut oil can do:
- Coconut oil will stimulate hair growth getting deep into the follicles
- Promotes scalp health tackling problems as insect bites, lice and dandruff
- Moisturises the most damaged and dried out of hair
- Adds shine and softness to the hair
- Prevents hair breakage and split ends, contributing to hair length
- Helps to slow down hair loss
- Opt for 100% natural coconut oil for best results
The before and after results can be astounding like the model below. Take a look at the before and after image of your hair to see the difference.
So how do I use it you?
The oil comes in a compacted thick format – warm the oil first by rubbing between your palms. Add the oil through strands of hair. Don’t add too much or it’ll get tricky to rinse out. It is recommended to leave on overnight for maximum results by wrapping your hair up in a towel, however if you’re short on time a quick one hour treatment will be effective also. Shampoo out the oil and once dried, you’ll have shiny, sleek locks that even Rapunzel would be jealous of.
Whats more, coconut oil has antibacterial properties and nutrients, beneficial to hair and scalp protection from viral and bacterial infections.
Perhaps the most exciting statement about this natural oil, is it claims to keep colour pigmentation in women’s hair stopping them going grey when old.
