There is a lot of hype around the miracle oil that is Coconut Oil recently while some babes from cultures have been using it for centuries for its benefits. There is also information going around that coconut is bad for your hair and is your hairdressers worst nightmare and we here at Hair&Me would love to put your mind at ease with these benefits that are backed by science not gossip, babe.
Coconut oil is amazing to treat dry scalp and dandruff and the hydration offered by coconut oil is out of this world, babe. It contains medium-chain fatty acids that help to combat the bacteria that can cause dandruff.
It is also a great way to avoid hair damage and help to repair your locks. Your hair needs protein to be healthy and recent studies have shown that coconut oil can penetrate the hair shaft and provide a reduction in protein loss when used as a pre or post wash treatment.
Coconut oil is also great to help with tangled hair and avoiding hair breakage. Due to its penetrating properties it can help to reduce tangles and knots leaving you with stress free hair styling.
There you have it - just a number of reasons why we use extra virgin coconut oil in our products, and none should ever be an issue with your trip to the salon if you thoroughly clean your hair prior.
