How to Have a Healthy Hair using Coconut Oil?

coconut oil for your hair

Coconut oil also prevents the hair from becoming frizzy. And from my own personal trials of using coconut oil, it does make my dark hair shiny.

And in further studies of this product, I found it is believed to help prevent baldness. I found many sources claiming that it slowed hair loss and promoted hair growth, after about 2 – 3 months of regular use (2-3 times a week). Sometimes hair loss is caused by microbes on the scalp and hair roots. You can protect hair against microbes by using an antimicrobial agent. The lauric acid in coconut oil is an antimicrobial agent.

So now, for the somewhat unusual method I was taught by two estheticians from India to apply coconut oil to hair in order to work correctly. First, apply the coconut oil to your scalp. Then, using the fingers of your hand, slap your scalp a little more than lightly, all over for about 3 minutes. This stimulates blood flow to your scalp and increases the rate of absorption of the product. Then they would apply the coconut oil to all of the hair, pulling the oil through hair in a downward motion. Next, they would take large chunks of hair and tug on the hair in different directions. When I watched them doing this to each other, it lasted about 2 – 3 minutes. Then they said to massage the scalp for a couple of minutes, put on a shower cap or night cap and sleep with the oil in the hair. Wash and condition hair in the morning, start with hot water to sort of melt the oil into the hair even more. Finish with a cold rinse on hair for 1 minute to optimal shine.

    Hmm, very interesting. i swear by my argan oil, but I will have to definitely look into coconut oil…i would assume that cooking coconut oil would work as long as it is 100% organic and doesn’t have anything else in it? lol
