The Uses and Benefits of Coconut Oil That You Can Bring you Shiny Looking Hair

Coconut
oil is a very healthy product for moisturizing your hairs. Coconut oil may have
a wide variety of uses but it still reign supreme in the department of caring
for the scalp. It can be used for cooking, cleaning, and for removing makeup
among other things. However, the scope of this article is limited conditioning
of hair via the use of coconut oil. What happens often is when we comb or
brush, wash and blow-dry/style our hairs they become broken and dry. For the
benefits of using it as hair oil, first we need to understand how our scalp is
made up of or more specifically, what your hair anatomy is all about.

There
is a part called medulla which is the central part of our hair shaft. This is
soft and thin hairs can exhibit more of it as compared to hair with volume
(slim to none amounts of medulla). The second important element is the cortex.
The cortex happens to be the bulkiest layer of your hair responsible for giving
color to them. In the end, cuticle which is the outer
layer protecting your hair. 
As
stated that styling and brushing your hair can cause your immense damage to
cuticle and thus contributing to the loss of fibrous proteins in your hair
(cortex). All of this leaves the medulla open to outside interference.

How can coconut oil protect your hairs?
First
off, coconut oil helps keep the loss of proteins at bay which means that your
hair will shine bright and will not lose its healthy look. There is an actual
study which has made the said discovery. They applied coconut oil, sunflower
oil and mineral oil to scalp of different participants. 
What
they found was when the participants washed their hairs, the content of proteins
in the hairs where coconut oil was applied came out on top. Find

online. The hairs were undamaged, bleached and in addition
were UV treated. Its counterparts did not leave the same effect.


In
short, the advantage was derived as a result of having rubbed oil before
washing and then subsequently washing them. The result was prevention of hair
loss/damage. When the hair absorbs water, it undergoes certain structural
changes. So when you apply hair oil before washing lesser water is absorbed by
the medulla which makes your hair less susceptible to damage. 
Consequently,
applying hair oil leaves your hair soft and smooth making them less likely to
break. In totality this strengthens your hair and helps them to grow longer.
Don’t tell me you haven’t dreamt of long and shiny hair? The same reasons that
hampers the health of hairs are what prevent them from growing.

With
coconut oil you are moisturizing your hairs whereby reducing the breakage,
furthermore, it provides protection to the hairs from protein loss and damage
resulting from wetness. Also growth of long hairs is limited by environmental
influences such as wind, sun and dust.

entails is:

results, it treated 40% of the lice game as opposed to the chemical called
permethrin

2.     Sun protection

UV
filters are used to protect your hair from the heat of the sun. They say
