Black hair is often compromised by its natural lack of moisture and inability to hold onto the moisture that it is given. Moisture needs to penetrate deep into the hair shaft, and finding products to effectively do that can be a challenge for the curly texture of black hair. Coconut oil is a natural treasure for black hair because it is a highly effective moisturizer, locking in moisture deep at the hair shaft.
Coconut oil is packed with protein, Vitamin E and fatty acids that can be absorbed into the skin easily.
“The molecules in coconut oil are very small and this makes it a penetrative oil. This is good news for hair because when the oil easily penetrates the hair shaft and works with the natural hair proteins, the result is stronger hair that is able to withstand quite a bit of damage.
Coconut oil is also used to treat scalp conditions including that of sebhorreic dermatitis, dry scalp and other fungal conditions.
Coconut oil minimizes protein loss because of its medium-chain triglycerides that can pass through the cell membrane and reinforce the hair’s structure. It also provides the essential proteins required for nourishing damaged hair.
Coconut oil has long been associated with healthy hair growth and thick, glossy hair.
Coconut oil is not only anti-dandruff but also anti-lice, regular applications of coconut oil can discourage lice from finding a home on your scalp.
Coconut oil can help to stimulate proper circulation on the scalp and keep it moisturized” www.blackhair101.com
