Coconut Oil for Hair: What makes it so special vs. other oils for hair?
Coconut Oil for hair is a saturated fat called a Medium Chain Fatty acid, which you may have heard of it being referred to as an MCF. A Medium Chain Fatty acid contains a very small molecule. The small molecular structure of Coconut Oil for Hair allows the oil to deeply penetrate into the hair shaft through the cuticle. If another oil has a larger molecule, it will not be able to work it s way through the cuticle and will sit on the surface of the hair creating a greasy/oily appearance of the hair. All natural Coconut Oil for hair is actually repairing & strengthening the hair from the inside. Regular use of Coconut Oil for hair will help prevent split ends (which causes the hair to break off) thus helping the hair to grow longer faster. Being a saturated fat, rather than an unsaturated fat, Coconut Oil for hair retains it’s anti-oxidative benefits. Anti-oxidants help prevent free radical damage to the hair which have been inflicted from the environment or hair processing treatments.
The number one cardinal rule of Coconut Oil for hair is LESS IS MORE when it comes to using it as a styling aide. Depending on the type of hair you have, you will need to use more or less. A small amount used on the ends of the hair during and after styling will help prevent split ends. Take care not to apply Coconut Oil for hair to your roots during styling, or you may end up with a greasy appearance of the hair.
