Coconut oil, or copra oil, is an edible oil extracted from the kernel or meat of mature coconuts harvested from the coconut palm (Cocos nucifera). It has been in use as hair oil for thousands of years. The use of coconut oil on hair helps reduce protein loss in both damaged as well as undamaged hair. Coconut oil is rich in lauric acid, has a high affinity for hair protein, and easily penetrates inside the hair shaft due to its low molecular weight. It can be used for both, pre-wash or post-wash hair grooming. Coconut oil is loaded with natural antioxidants and nutrients such as Vitamin E, Vitamin K and Iron. Each of these play a key role in keeping your hair soft and supple, and help prevent dandruff on the scalp. Lice are a very common pest found in the hair and coconut oil assists to suffocate the lice and help the lice comb glide through the hair to remove the lice and eggs.
