Ways to use coconut oil to your hair

While long locks may be the primary purpose why you need coconut hair for your hair, it’s not the only benefit it may give. It may also function as the following:

1. Conditioner

Use coconut oil on your hair, and you’re free from harmful chemicals. Commercial hair products are excellent giving you silky hair, but it may come with a price of exposing your hair from scary chemicals.

One research in the Journal of Cosmetic Science says that coconut oil exceeds mineral oil and sunflower oil. Also, coconut oil may be helpful in reducing protein loss. Protein loss is one of the causes of hair loss.

2. Anti-dandruff

Dandruff may be caused by the following:

The medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA) in coconut oil that includes lauric acid and capric acid have strong antimicrobial, antiviral, and antifungal properties that may help kill the fungus that causes your itchy scalp.

3. Styling agent

Coconut oil’s hydrating power may be known to you. This ability is why coconut oil may help you dodge the dehydrating effect of hair dryers, flat irons, hot rollers, and curling irons.

4. Lice Prevention and Lice Treatment

Long hair plus hair lice can be a disgusting combo. All thanks to coconut oil’s ability to shoo them away.

A study from the European Journal of Pediatrics says that the combination of anise spray and coconut oil may be more efficient, than the commonly used prescription lice treatment Permethrin.

Another study published in the Israel Medical Association Journal found greater success in adding ylang-ylang oil to the anise oil and coconut oil combo. The treatment was effective in 92.3% of children and caused no serious side effects.

Just like the glory that a simple ponytail may bring, coconut oil’s simplicity may stretch a wide range of positive effects. Untangle your hair problems. Do it with coconut oil and Break Free like Ari!
