Is Coconut Oil Good for Your Hair? The Real Story.
Coconut oil is the richest natural source of MCFA’s (medium-chain fatty acids). (https://wellnessmama.com/98671/mct-oil-benefits/) These fatty acids have antibacterial and antimicrobial properties.
The MCFA in coconut oil is called Luric Acid. Luric Acid is also naturally occurring occurs in breast milk. It has been proven to support hormones and cellular health.
Because coconut oil is made of these smaller fatty acids, it is able to penetrate deeper into your hair. Once it penetrates, coconut oil moisturizes your hair, helping to prevent protein loss. Normal hair treatment, such as blow drying, cause our hair to lose protein. So anything that keeps it in makes our hair healthier.
Plus, coconut oil can naturally strip our hair of sebum build-up. Sebum clogs your hair follicles and causes excess oil to build up. When this happens, you may experience extra hair loss. (https://www.hairguard.com/sebum-buildup/)
