Coconut oil is highly moisturising and is the only oil that actually reduces protein loss, which helps aid the reduction of hair loss. It is the protein loss in hair that leads to dryness and breakage. The lauric acid in the Coconut Oil has the ability to penetrate the hair shafts to nourish and moisturise hair. Coconut oil is solid at room temperature so will have to be melted slightly before use. To use as a body moisturiser take a small chunk and rub it between your palms until melted and apply where needed. Can all be used as a hair oil, overnight hair treatment, make-up remover, face and body moisturiser!
