Is it the cure to your dry hair?
If you suffer from dry hair, you know that most moisturizing products
only add a temporary gloss to your thirsty dry hair. The reason
that most moisturizing products will not actually help your dry
hair condition is because they cannot actually penetrate the hair
shaft. Most oils and moisturizers contain mineral oil or lanolin
as the moisturizer. These products only coat your hair and provide
the illusion of moisture. Water based products can actually penetrate,
but they can make relaxed or heat styled hair swell. Virgin coconut
oil is an effective moisturizer because it actually penetrates the
hair shaft to moisturize the hair from within the strand. It also
helps to prevent protein losses from the hair so that the hair is
stronger and less vulnerable to breakage. Coconut oil can be used
as a pre-shampoo moisture treatment and as a daily moisturizer.
It is important that you use Organic, Virgin Coconut Oil. This oil
is not processed. It is solid at room temperature and turns into
liquid at 76 degrees F. To use the coconut oil as a daily moisturizer,
simply rub a very small amount into the palm of your hands and rub
through your hair. Do not focus on the scalp, but the actual hair
strands instead. This can be done as often as necessary. However,
you should start with a very small amount and add more as necessary.
Putting too much coconut oil in your hair at one time will cause
it to become greasy and heavy. To use coconut oil as a pre-shampoo
moisture treatment, you would apply to dry hair (or wet) hair and
cover with a conditioning cap. Allow the oil to stay on the hair
for 30 minutes with or without heat. Proceed to wash the hair as
normal. Virgin coconut oil is also effective as a skin moisturizer.
It is also used in cooking. It is the absolute best moisturizer
for relaxed hair and dry hair types.
