Coconut Oil Hair Benefits
The benefits of coconut oil are many. Let’s explore the unique properties of coconut oil that make it the ultimate solution for nourishing and repairing damaged hair. This ancient remedy can rescue your locks from the clutches of breakage and brittleness. That is why this hair mask recipe relies on coconut oil as the base.
To begin with, coconut oil can help repair and protect your hair. As VeryWellHealth points out, “coconut oil is similar to natural hair proteins and has a unique ability to penetrate the hair shaft…By penetrating the hair, the coconut oil can reduce the amount of water absorbed into your hair. This helps limit everyday hair damage.” Healthy hair relies on the protein health of your hair. Coconut oil helps reduce protein loss thereby protecting and repairing.
Coconut oil also benefits your hair by protecting your scalp. It is considered to be an effective treatment for dry scalp and dandruff. As Healthline points out, coconut oil likely penetrates beneath the top layer of skin and acts as a barrier to help protect from further dryness and inflammation.
As Dr. Axe says, “Coconut oil is rich in anti-microbial properties, lauric acid, and medium-chain fatty acids that strengthen hair, condition the scalp, and help to regrow hair.”
How to make a DIY coconut oil hair mask:
Start by grabbing your coconut oil hair mask recipe supplies and head to the kitchen counter. Measure out 1-2 Tablespoons of your liquid coconut oil. Two tablespoons of coconut oil long hair, 1 TBSP for short to medium length hair.
Next, grab your essential oils and add 4-5 drops of each: Lavender, Cedarwood and Rosemary. According to Natural Living Ideas, lavender essential oil can improve blood circulation, promote hair growth, and prevent hair loss when massaged into the hair and scalp. Rosemary essential oil is rich in antioxidants that help combat premature graying and thinning of hair. Cedarwood essential oil is used to treat hair loss and dandruff. Gently stir in the essential oils to mix oils together well. Your natural hair mask is now ready to use!
How To Use Coconut Oil Hair Mask:
There are a couple of ways to do a Coconut Oil Hair Mask.
After shampooing your hair in the shower, skip your regular conditioner. Gently ring out excess water and add your Conditioning Hair Mask to wet hair. Start at the roots and work your way down to the ends of your hair. You can use a comb to help distribute it evenly. Twist up in a bun and secure damp hair with a hair tie. You can add a shower cap on top if you like. Leave on for 20-30 minutes and then rinse out. If you tend to have dry skin and brittle hair, you are probably done. If you tend to have oily scalp and heavy hair, it may feel too oily after rinsing with just water. In this case, you can add a tiny bit of shampoo to wash it out.
Another way to use this deep conditioning coconut hair mask is to just add to dry hair before hoping in the shower! Wash, rinse and style as usual. This natural hair mask is so great for repairing dry damaged hair and helping natural hair growth.
Wave goodbye to common hair woes such as dryness, frizz, and lackluster appearance with the power of coconut oil hair masks. Explore the transformative benefits of incorporating coconut oil into your hair care routine. Say hello to silky smooth, nourished hair that turns heads wherever you go.
