Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is a definite favorite of mine! I find it very moisturizing on my hair and will put it on the ends of my hair after I wash it. I also mix it with different oils when I do my scalp treatments. (I’ll be putting up the recipe of my hair oil concoction very soon!) This oil will help keep protein loss during hair washes at a low amount since it has a small molecular structure similar to hair protein. This makes it easier to penetrate the hair shaft. Massaging the scalp on a regular basis with coconut oil can also help rid of dandruff and even prevent lice (lice like really clean hair).  Beware of the fact that coconut oil is a saturated fat, which means it can more easily clog your pores. I personally, though, have not experience any scalp breakouts from using coconut oil.

Just like the castor oil, coconut oil will help hydrate hair and help with shine and softness! It is much easier to get out of your hair, though. I just shampoo and condition! Hope this was helpful!
