The Victoria's Secret angels like, Doutzen Kroes and Miranda Kerr
have swore a number of times about the benefits offered by coconut
oil. The Victoria’s Secret Angel prides herself on her flawless appearance,
which she understands is vital for her job. Doutzen has
discussed one of the easiest ways she ensures her hair is always
healthy. “I put coconut oil in my hair, it keeps it soft and shiny.
Put a bit in before you go to sleep at night and wash it out in the
morning,” she told modelinia.com.
Miranda seems to be obsessed with it. According to her blog, the
stunning Ms. Kerr eats four whole tablespoons of coconut oil a day.
She uses it on salads, in her cooking and in her green tea.
According to her, Coconut oil is “the healthiest oil on earth.” She
uses it as an overnight conditioning treatment
for her hair.
We'll go about why is it so highly rated and has been used for
centuries to nourish the hair.
It is important to coordinate your eye shadow with your
clothing, as well as you actual eye and skin color. Then only will
there be a right impact.
Anti-microbial Effect: One of the most responsible reasons behind
hair fall and hair loss is microbial action on the scalp and hair roots.
Lauric Acid present in Coconut Oil is a triglyceride which yields a
monoglyceride called Monolaurin when acted upon by a species of bacteria
which breaks the glycerol bonds. This monolaurin has excellent antimicrobial
and anti-fungal properties. Another triglceride is, Capric acid which,
yields another monoglyceride called Monocaprin due to bacterial action,
having antimicrobial properties similar to that of monolaurin.
Excellent Moisturizer: Coconut
Oil has high moisture retaining capacity, since it is not broken down easily
nor evaporated, being very stable. It does not let moisture escape thus
moistened and soft. Thus
protecting against the harsh effects of nature.
Deep Conditioner: If
you're looking for a deep hair conditioner that's chemical free, look no
further than coconut oil. Coconut oil is one of the best hair conditioners
around and literally bring softness back to your hair - and part of its
power lies in its disease fighting medium chain fatty acids. Coconut oil's
unique fatty acids have a very small molecular structure and they can pass
easily into your hair's cell membrane. This allows the nourishing oil to
penetrate your hair's shaft - and literally brings deep conditioning from
within. While other conditioners work from the outside in, coconut oil is
able to work from the inside out.
Relief from Dandruff: Coconut
oil is nourishing for your scalp and
because the oil is a natural antifungal, coconut oil can offer relief from dandruff conditions.
Dandruff is often caused by an internal fungal condition that reaches the
scalp, called candida overgrowth. With regular use, coconut oil can kill the
fungus in the scalp and dandruff issues can be eliminated.
Hair Rejuvenator: Certain
components, like vitamin A, B, C and E present in coconut oil keep the hair
strong, vitalized, nourished and protected from effects of ageing. it
contains plentiful antioxidants to protect from free radical damage,
including heat and environmental damage. On the other hand, most commercial
conditioners use processed vegetable oils that actually create free radicals
and are completely stripped of their original antioxidant power.
A Great Styling Oil: As
it melts on heating and then condenses on cooling, applying it on your hair
(while warm), it thins and spreads evenly. Soon afterwards, as the hair
comes in contact with air, the oil on hair condenses on cooling and thus
works as a styling gel
If you're not already using coconut oil in your hair care routine, it's worth
trying it––it's inexpensive and you'll most likely love the results.
