Many African American women select to use coconut hair products because of the benefits it provides for their hair. You can probably guess that it softens the hair and conditions the scalp but did you know the oil acts as a sealant and is a good source for protein?
You will find many all natural hairstyling products using this gift from GOD as an ingredient because they have done their homework.
Coconut oil benefits black hair in two important ways. First, coconut oil’s hydrophobic oil characteristics allow it to inhibit the penetration of water from the surrounding air and environment. Second, coconut oil is able to bind to the natural protein structure of the hair. This helps the hair retain its natural moisture content and reinforces the hair fiber, making it stronger.
You definitely want to consider using a product that has this listed as one of the ingredients.
I am so glad that your website posted this coconut oil information, I ran out and purchase some from the whole foods store and I must say , it is working miracles.I used to spend money on grease and conditioners and everything, but with the coconut oil, avacado and egg conditioner are things that my grandmother used to use on my hair and it was as healthy as ever. Now I am using these same things, even though I do not have damaged hair, but it saves money and takes me back to my roots. I love my thirsty Roots! Hay
