When you think about coconuts, the first thing that comes to your mind is the creamy, nutty taste and the sweet and tropical smell of this fruit. Apart from possessing several health benefits, coconut also has several beauty benefits too. Be it in the form of coconut oil or water — this fruit works wonders on your hair.
Here, we’ve listed the top beauty benefits of coconut for hair. So go ahead and check ‘em out.
Coconut oil is an excellent moisturising agent. When applied to the scalp, it simultaneously removes dirt while also moisturising to give you silky, smooth hair. The Love Beauty & Planet Natural Coconut Water & Mimosa Volume Shampoo is made with ethically sourced Moroccan mimosas blended in natural coconut water and organic coconut oil. It is free of silicones, parabens, dyes and animal-derived ingredients and is vegan and PETA certified cruelty-free too. The plant-based cleansers in it will cleanse your scalp, while the delicate scent of mimosas transfers you to a tropical paradise.
Humid weather and frizzy hair go hand-in-hand. But fret not when coconut oil is here. The coconut oil prevents the hair from absorbing water and moisture from the air in a humid climate, which helps tame down the frizz. Damaged hair also appears to be frizzy; in this case, the coconut oil goes deep into the hair shaft to smoothen the uneven hair and prevent further damage.
Stimulates hair growth
A clean, healthy scalp means happy hair. The vitamins and essential fatty acids found in coconut oil help improve your hair and scalp health, which in turn helps your hair grow longer, thicker, and faster. Oiling your hair with coconut oil like the Clinic Plus Non Sticky Nourishing Hair Oil relaxes your scalp and increases the blood flow in the area while restoring the moisture. Formulated with 100% pure coconut oil, this one helps reduce hair breakage and frizziness and gives you soft, smooth and shiny hair. Simply rub it on your scalp an hour before washing your hair to get shiny, lustrous hair.
Besides being a great moisturiser for your hair and scalp, coconut milk also has anti-inflammatory properties that help get rid of dandruff. You can make a hair mask using three tablespoons coconut milk, two tablespoons aloe vera gel with some basil before washing up your hair, and you’d notice less visible white flakes on your scalp.
Softens and conditions
Who doesn’t want soft, silky hair? And guess what, coconut water gives you just that. The water hydrates your dry hair strands and helps tame down frizz with its moisturising properties. It helps condition your hair deeply while giving it a shiny, soft look. If you aren’t too sure about adding coconut water to your hair care routine, then we suggest you go for the Sunsilk Coconut Water & Aloe Vera Volume Hair Shampoo. With the goodness of coconut water and aloe vera, this shampoo cleanses your scalp and gives your hair oodles of volume and bounce while keeping it soft and shiny.
