Our B&B family was on to something! Coconut oil is often said to be the best oil to use on your hair to reduce protein loss and keep it looking healthy. In fact, coconut oil came out on top in all of their studies and reduced protein loss in hair that was undamaged, bleached, chemically treated and UV exposed.
First, applying oil to your hair before it’s washed can help reduce the amount of damage it sustains during washing and while it’s wet. Second, coating your hair in oil after you wash it helps make it softer and smoother. This reduces the amount of friction caused by styling, making your hair less likely to snag and break.
Coconut oil could also help you grow your hair longer. Use it as a conditioner, hair mask, or scalp treatment. May help prevent hair loss as well. Coconut oil is an excellent moisturizing product for your hair.
