We often see that due to blow-drying, coloring, hard brushing, and too much water and sun exposure and sometimes due to bleaching, the outer cuticle of hair gets damaged. The damage can be split ends, coarse, brittle and dry hair, which breaks very easily. The most dangerous one is split ends which means the cuticle is worn away. And sometimes the inner portion, which is called cortex, gets exposed and frayed. You can stop these things just by using a coconut oil as a hair oil or conditioner.

There are many ways of using coconut oil as a hair oil or conditioner. But the best way is to use it just after a shower or bath, when the hair remains wet. This doesn’t mean that the hair should dripping wet. It can be slightly damp or semi wet. It is not necessary that the coconut oil should be in liquid state. If it is in solid state then also it will be effective. Generally coconut oil solidifies at less than 76 degree F. You will have to just spread it throughout the hair not only on the damaged portion. Due to its molecular structure it just penetrates inside the hair shaft.

Coconut oil also plays an important role in dandruff treatment. It helps you to get rid of dandruffs from your hair. Coconut hair oil works great because it is a moisturizer and anti-fungal too. Generally the medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA) or medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) are found largely in coconut oil and these two things have antibacterial, antifungal and ant parasitic properties. Due to these properties, it helps in protecting and nourishing the hair.
