Coconut oil is considered a penetrating oil because of its low molecular weight. It also contains saturated fatty acids and Vitamin E which are beneficial for relaxed, colored and natural hair.

  • Protein restoration: By penetrating deep into each hair and helping to bind the natural protein structure of the hair it helps with retaining moisture and reinforcement of the hair fiber
  • Dandruff prevention: Coconut oil has antibacterial properties that help to protect the scalp against infections that can result in dandruff and itching
