Why did I use those particular oils?
- Helps retain moisture by sealing it into the strands. The oil isn't heavy, rather it is light (molecular weight) and therefore penetrates the hair shaft to help seal moisture, so goes all the way into the hair shaft and penetrates outwards into the full strand. Certain oils can be heavy, and weigh the hair down instead of help with moisture.
- Helps prevent dandruff
- Prevents loss of the natural protein (keratin) in your hair. Protein keeps hair bonds strong and prevents breakage
- Good as a deep conditioner to revive dry hair that has lost moisture. Once the hair is moisturised, coconut oil retains the moisture as it isn't easily evaporated.
- Improves blood circulation in the scalp
- Promotes hair growth (trust me it growssssss hair!)
- Thickens hair strands
- Prevents split ends through its moisture sealing abilities as well
- It is the oil that is the most similar to the oils produced by the scalp(sebum glands). So good for the scalp
- Moisturises the scalp and hair
- Has antibacterial properties that prevent dandruff
- Minimises hair frizz
- Removes build up on the hair strands
- Also moisturises hair
- Adds shine to the hair
- Softens the hair thus acting like a conditioner
