Every day it seems, people are coming up with new miracle hair treatments. These treatments are often not only a huge waste of money, they cover the hair in harsh chemicals that are actually harmful to the hair. Recently, many people have become familiar with an all natural treatment that has been used for hundreds of years. Coconut oil is an all-natural hair growth treatment that not only works, but it is relatively inexpensive.
How Does Coconut Oil Promote Hair Growth?
Coconut oil offers a vast array of benefits that work to create the ideal environment for hair strength and rejuvenation. First, coconut oil works to moisturize and protect hair. The coconut oil can actually penetrate and add moisture to each individual strand. One of the main problems that most people experience with their hair is breakage caused by dryness. This breakage can thin the hair and give the perception of excessive hair loss and slowed growth. Coconut oil treatment offers vitamin E, a promoter of healthy hair and growth, reversing this problem.
Healthy Scalp = Healthy New Hair
Another major benefit of coconut oil treatment is its effect on the scalp. Many people suffer from dandruff, an embarrassing and difficult to treat problem. Capric Acid in coconut oil can keep the scalp moisturized and free of dandruff and lice. This is very important for the growth of hair. Dandruff can actually clog follicles and get in the way of newly growing hair. By clearing the way for hair to grow, the already thicker and healthier hair will be more plentiful and stronger.
Coconut Oil is usually sold in a solid state. When heated, the oil will soften and is ready for use. Putting the jar of oil in a bowl of hot water should soften the oil quickly. When softened apply a spoonful, two for longer hair, to the scalp and gently massage through the hair and scalp. This may feel strange the first couple of times, but it should feel better as the hair strengthens and adjusts. Next, wrap the hair in a towel or cap and allow the oil to sit. Set for an hour or two and then shampoo with a mild shampoo. It is important to wash the oil out in order to avoid clogged pores in the scalp. Repeat this one or two times a week and enjoy a healthy head of new, strong hair.
Chemical Free at Last
Most commercial hair treatment products are full of chemicals and can actually be very harmful to the hair. These chemicals can strip the hair of proteins that are essential for the strength and growth of hair. Coconut Oil works as an emollient, this means that it protects the proteins in the hair and promotes the production of new proteins and new hair growth. That being said, it is important when purchasing coconut oil to buy natural organic products. There are many types of coconut oil sold, organic cold pressed coconut oil is probably the best.
So, don’t wait any longer. Hair gets weaker by the second, so don’t wait get started with a coconut oil treatment and grow that healthy new hair.
