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.

The main benefits of using coconut oil as part of your relaxed hair regimen are:
  • 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
  • Stimulated hair growth: It can be used in scalp massages which can help stimulate hair follicles for hair growth
  • Moisture sealing: Coconut oil is hydrophobic so it repels water reducing the amount of water that enters the hair strand. This makes it a good for sealing
