Know Your Ingredient - Coconut
Though it’s a popular cooking ingredient, coconut oil can also be used as a natural beauty product. In fact, it is often said to be the best oil to use on your hair to reduce protein loss.
Coconut oil is the most abundant source of lauric acid, a fatty acid known for its antimicrobial, moisturizing, and hormone-balancing properties. When it comes to hair, using coconut oil helps maintain moisture and prevent protein loss from combing damage. Coconut oil’s structure allows it to penetrate hair in ways that other oils are not able to.
The vitamins and fatty acids in coconut oil help nourish your scalp and penetrate the cuticle of the hair. They also help remove sebum build-up from hair follicles, which speeds up hair growth.
Coconut oil can help smooth the cuticles on split ends. It can also help tame frizz due to split ends or humid weather. It can also control frizz and it's great for replenishing moisture in hair. The amount of moisture provided by coconut oil can help hair to grow longer. This moisture will reduce breakage, soothe the scalp and provide much needed vitamins and essential acids.
