Coconut Oil: Going Nuts for Beautiful Hair!

Everything You Need to Know About Coconut Oil
If you’re not using nature’s “Tree of Life” in your regular beauty routine, then your hair and scalp are most likely going coo-coo for coconut oil!

Everyone wants to parade a healthy, full, and thick head of hair around town. However, if you’ve noticed your hair looking dry, limp, less-shiny, thin or rough it’s probably because you’ve been using main-stream, popular soap or detergent based shampoos.

If you want to invest in yourself and garner a gorgeous head of hair, here’s how:

What is coconut oil?

It’s produced from processing the inside meat or flesh of a mature coconut and there are two categories to choose from.

Category 1: 

Industrial coconut oil that has been manufactured from a low-grade dried flesh of the coconut called “copra”. The shelf life of coconut is limited and transportation takes so long that is becomes rancid quickly. Not to mention the coconut treated for this type of oil is cared for with pesticides and chemicals to keep it good longer. You should stay away from this type of coconut oil product – yuck!

Category 2:

Cold Pressed Virgin Certified Organic coconut oil that is grown without any chemicals or additives. The oil is made from fresh coconuts: quickly dried, pressed, settled, filtered, and nothing else.

This is the oil you should look for to place on your scalp and hair and you can usually find it easily at your local grocery store or health food store for about $12.00.

What are the plethora of benefits of using Cold Pressed Virgin Certified Organic coconut oil? Let me count the ways you can go nuts protecting and rescuing your hair. With coconut oil you can:

1. Repair hair damage

2. Seal spilt ends

3. Rejuvenate gray hair

4. Revive thinning hair

5. Reverse hair loss due to premature aging

6. Protect against and eliminate dandruff

7. Protect against lice

8. Beneficial hair conditioning treatment

9. Help heal scalp boils

10. Accelerate hair growth

Using Cold Pressed Virgin Certified Organic coconut oil will moisturize and encourage protection of your scalp while promoting growth of healthy hair by penetrating the hair shaft to guard against environmental impurities and excessive heat temperatures.

Coconut oil’s fatty acids protect hair strands and roots from breakage by binding protein to your hair, which will improve the look and feel. Vital antioxidants and nutrients improve your hair’s texture (softness) and the anti-fungal properties protect against dandruff and lice.

For thousands of years, coconut oil has proven to keep hair beautifully strong, nourished, and protected from the harsh outside elements. Cultures from Indonesia, the Indian Subcontinent, Malaysia, the Caribbean and more, all showcase superlative heads of hair and you can too, by following these simple steps:

1. Measure 2-5 tablespoons of coconut oil.

2. Warm it up (no microwaves, you can do this with your hands or stove top with very little heat).

3. Rub the coconut oil onto your scalp and throughout your hair evenly until your hair is completely drenched (gently massage with fingertips – and this is great for scalp blood circulation!).

4. Secure your hair up and cover with a shower cap.

5. Wait at least 1 hour (the longer the better – overnight is preferred!).

6. Remove shower cap and wash your hair (could take 2 times until your hair no longer feels oily).

7. Let your hair air dry or gently blow dry and style.

Remember, it is imperative to avoid impurities and additives that can stunt hair growth. Only use organic.

Cheers to beautiful, luscious locks!
