Researchers Have Found Applying Coconut Oil To The Hair Improves The Overall Condition
Coconut oil enhances hair health
The study was conducted by the Research and Development Department, at the Nature Care Division, Marico Industries Ltd in Mumbai, India. The trial aimed to discover whether coconut oil, sunflower oil or mineral oil could have a positive effect on the health of their hair.
Other studies have shown that coconut oil could prevent hair from being damaged from everyday actions such as brushing and combing. This study set out to see how well coconut oil compared with sunflower oil and mineral oils.
The oils were applied as a pre-wash and post wash on both damaged and undamaged hair; mineral oil and sunflower oil was shown to have no effect on protein loss. Out of the three different oils, it was found that coconut oil was the only one to significantly reduce the protein loss.
The researchers believe that it is the lauric acid in virgin coconut oil that has the positive effect on the structure of the hair. The researchers say that because lauric acid has a an affinity with hair proteins, and because of its low molecular weight, the lauric acid in virgin coconut oil can easily penetrate the hair shaft while other oils aren't able to do this.
Coconut oil has often been used in hairdressing in developing countries around the world. This is because it is believed to have properties that enhance the look and condition of the hair, while maintaining the health of the hair.
