Once again. Kapuluan Coconut Oil. It’s suitable for everything!
Ok, we’re biased.
But seriously, though.
If you could find a product that has been shown to grow hair, strengthen existing hair, and protect your scalp, all while conditioning and softening your hair. There are multiple ways in which your hair can benefit from coconut oil.
One of the significant components of coconut oil, lauric acid, is a fatty acid that binds hair proteins, thus helping protect roots and preventing hair breakage. A study conducted in 2003 revealed that coconut oil could reduce or prevent hair protein loss more effectively than mineral and sunflower oils, which are the most common oils used in hair care products.
Coconut oil is a natural moisturizer. It can penetrate the hair shaft, healing and conditioning from within. That moisture also protects your hair from heat and other environmental impurities.
It can protect your scalp against dandruff and lice, which can hinder hair growth. This is due to coconut oil containing antibacterial and antifungal properties.
Coconut oil is chalked full of nutrients like iron, vitamin E, and vitamin K. These aid in your hair’s shine and softness and help with dandruff, another major cause of hair loss and limited growth.
Massaging your scalp with coconut oil also increases blood circulation. Improving this gives your follicles the required nutrients and oxygen, leading to hair growth.
Why Use Kapuluan Coconut Oil For Hair
Based on our preference, there are two ways to apply Kapuluan Coconut Oil in your hair care routine: before or after washing.
Those with straight or wavy hair should generally apply before washing, while those with thicker or curly hair can apply after. This is because thicker hair tends to absorb quickly and doesn’t leave as much of a greasy look.
You want to apply the oil to the scalp. This is where the hair grows from, and you will get the most significant benefit. Before shampooing, apply generously to the scalp and gently rub the oil into your skin. Cover your whole scalp and massage it for a few minutes. You then want to apply it to the rest of your hair, from the root to the ends.
Let the oil set in your hair for at least 30 minutes, up to four hours if you have severe breakage problems or are trying to get the most benefits. Then, apply it before bed and wrap it in a towel overnight. Then, wash out with regular shampoo and condition after treatment.
Post-wash treatment isn’t for everyone, especially those with protein-sensitive hair. But if you have problems with split ends or dry hair, you can apply coconut oil when it is dry, and it works wonders.
