Hair Beauty Secret: Coconut Oil

It's time we let you in on this amazing beauty secret. Coconut oil!! 

Coconut oil has numerous benefits for both hair and skin. It is nutritious for all hair types- helps hair to shine, softens hair, and remedies damaged hair by helping to preserve the hair's natural proteins. Coconut oil is a very unique hair oil. This versatile, low molecular weight is able to leverage its traditional oil status to seal the hair, but complements this sealing capacity with a strong affinity for hair proteins not found in other hair oils. Because moisturizing and hydration are characteristics of water, coconut oil cannot rightfully be called a moisturizer in and of itself. It does, however, greatly support the moisturization of the hair fiber in ways that other oils cannot and have fallen short. Coconut oil is also an excellent sealant of moisture! In its sealant capacity, coconut oil acts as other oils. It simply coats and conditions the outer cuticle layer enhancing shine and increasing the hair fiber’s pliability. It also reduces friction and static electricity between the hair fibers.

Benefits of Coconut Oil:

Penetrates, Thickens, Protects 
Virgin Coconut Oil is completely absorbed by the hair, filling up the hollow shafts, adding body and making hair appear thicker, whilst also protecting it from damage (by reducing fiber swelling).

Prevents Dandruff and Hair Fall-Out
Coconut Oil’s antibacterial properties protect the scalp against infections resulting in itching, dandruff  
and weak dry hair. They also protect hair follicles, strengthening hair – meaning less breakage and less hair falling out!

Prevents Protein Loss and Boosts Shine
Coconut Oil helps hair retain proteins – normally lost through weak, damaged hair. It also seals in moisture, making hair stronger and silkier. 

 Promotes Hair and Scalp Health
Vitamins E and K found in coconut oil nourish hair and boost health and shine. Massaging it into the scalp makes it easier for hair follicles to absorb nutrients, whilst stimulating blood circulation to the area, moisturizing and preventing build-up of dry skin (another cause of dandruff).
