The benefits of virgin coconut oil for hair are well –documented and varied. While it may seem counter-intuitive to apply the oil directly to the hair, it doesn’t have the heavy and greasy effect. Instead, it naturally strengthens cleanness and smoothes the hair. Comprised of medium-chain fatty acids, the oil from coconuts can penetrate much more deeply into the hair shaft than other substances. As such, it can provide much-needed moisture to dry hair and help strengthen the cuticle to help prevent split ends. There are several different ways to use virgin oil for hair. The most popular are:
As a deep conditioning hair mask – the virgin oil penetrates the hair follicles faster than any other oil, so leaving the virgin coconut oil in for a more extended time period can draw maximum benefit.
As a detangler – Hair detangler is a type of hair conditioner that smooths hair by coating it with oil by acidifying it so that the hair’s surface tightens up, smoothing the scales on the hair’s outer surface or cuticle and imparting a positive electrical charge to prevent the static that can worsen tangles.
