Coconut oil is an amazing natural remedy for treating a wide range of hair issues. Since coconut oil contains no harmful chemicals and is 100% natural, it acts as an excellent home remedy for treating dry, damaged hair.
Here's why this wonder oil is considered as one of the best and safest options for hair treatment:
- Coconut oil can be used as a deep conditioning treatment as it penetrates hair more deeper and faster than other conditioners. Massage coconut oil into your clean scalp and tresses ensuring that every hair is properly coated. Leave it for at least 2 hours or overnight for the oil to soak in. Remember, the longer you keep it in your hair, the more conditioned your hair will be. For best results, use a plastic shower cap or a large sheet of plastic wrap or a towel to wrap up your hair. Wash your hair to remove the oil using a shampoo.
- It is also an excellent source for treating dandruff. Apply coconut oil into your scalp and let it stay for at least half an hour or overnight to treat that itchy, flaky dandruff. Wash off the oil using your favourite shampoo.
- Simply applying coconut oil mixed with lime water and lime juice can help prevent hair loss and lengthen the hair. Because coconut oil has lauric acid, capric acid, caprylic acid, which are responsible for maintaining good hair health.
- Applying a small amount of coconut oil on your tresses after showering will help keep your hair moisturised all through the day.
