YES! Coconut oil is an amazing natural treatment for beautiful hair! It’s rich in vitamins and fatty acids that nourish the hair, can promote growth, and more.
Coconut oil is a healthy fat that is very moisturizing to the skin, and hair, and as well as a great cooking fat.
Coconut oil has been shown to possess anti-inflammatory properties that help decrease local inflammation – an issue which has the ability to mess with your hair’s growth cycle and may lead to thinning hair and hair loss. It’s also packed with lauric acid – a long-chain fatty acid known to help strengthen and hydrate hair. And we all know that fast hair growth is influenced by how strong and healthy your hair is.
Coconut oil can fight harmful microorganisms which are particularly helpful for the skin, or hair and scalp, and even the balance of our gut bacteria when ingested.
Because a lack of moisture on the scalp is one of the main causes of dandruff, regular coconut oil treatments will rehydrate the skin to prevent an itchy and flaky scalp. Furthermore, coconut oil has been found to leave a protective barrier on the skin, which effectively prevents any further dryness and irritation from occurring.
Because it’s rich in fatty acids, coconut oil provides valuable nutrients when used topically or internally.
