Coconut oil is one of those incredibly amazing home remedies that can be used for anything from a natural moisturizer to imparting a glowing and radiant skin to various health and cooking applications.
However, coconut oil can also be assimilated into your hair care regime for treating dry, damaged and frizzy hair.
Conventional hair care products (including shampoos, conditioners and various serums), being chemical-laden and alkaline, disrupt the natural texture of your hair making it struggle for a delicate balance that results in dry and rough hair with split ends, dandruff, hair loss issues and a host of other troubles.
The natural properties of coconut oil make it extremely beneficial for your scalp and hair. Coconut oil meshes well with the texture of your hair to impart a gorgeous, shiny and longer fall.
There are two ways you can use coconut oil on your hair, depending on your hair type.
People with slightly wavy or straight hair should use a coconut oil treatment before washing their hair, while those with curly or thick hair should use it after washing their hair.
