Coconut oil for hair

The Asian beauty secret
The fragrance of coconut is reminiscent of sun and holidays – and it pampers our hair with its richness.

The fragrant beauty elixir

Coconut oil

Coconut oil contains natural anti-oxidants such as vitamin E, which protects the skin and hair from damaging environmental influences.

Coconut oil for hair – care and natural protection

If you open a jar of coconut oil and smell it with your eyes closed, then you immediately associate the fragrance with sun, beaches and palm trees and feel as if you are on holiday. In its natural state, coconut oil has a rather firm, white consistency at room temperature. When it is slightly warm, it becomes transparent, liquid and has a slightly more intensive fragrance. It can be applied very easily in this state.

People in Asia discovered the positive effects of coconut oil centuries ago.
The beauty secret of coconut oil is lauric acid which, along with numerous saturated fatty acids, is the most important ingredient of this fragrant beauty elixir. 

The pressed fat from coconuts is a staple component of nutrition and personal care in Asia, because the oil is very tasty, regulates blood lipids and has an anti-bacterial effect.

Coconut oil also places a protective film around the hair, making it feel healthier and softer. The result: healthy, silky shiny hair.

How to use oil as a care product

Regular blow-drying, styling, UV radiation and dry heating air stress the hair. Rich and nutritious coconut oil gives brittle and dull hair its silky lustre back and makes fragile ends smooth again. Coconut oil is also recommended for irritated or sensitive scalps.

Deep penetrating care for stressed hair

You can also make your own moisturising masks and treatments from coconut oil. All you need is cold-pressed and untreated coconut oil, which you can find in well-stocked chemists. As coconut oil is firm at room temperature and does not melt until it comes into contact with the body heat, it is very easy to measure out. It will not melt until the temperature is between 23 and 26 degrees, that is, when it comes into contact with the skin. This is why it sets again quickly. So take care when the temperature drops in winter! In line with this, coconut oil can also be completely liquid on hot summer days. However, you do not need to keep it in the refrigerator. It is sufficient to keep it in a cool, dark place, as high-quality coconut oil has a shelf-life of two to three years at room temperature.

For a hair mask or hair pack using coconut oil, you should first wash your hair as usual and pat it dry gently. Then massage about a knife tip of coconut oil in, beginning at the scalp and working right down the ends of your hair. Then wrap a towel around your head and let the oil take effect for an hour. In the case of very damaged hair you can also let the mask work overnight. Then rinse your hair thoroughly with warm water. This ensures that excess oil is removed and the moisturising protective film remains around each individual hair.

Caring for the ends of your hair

A hair-end mask with coconut oil cares for dry and fragile ends, making them smooth again and protecting against hair breakage. Apply a small quantity of oil like a hair-end fluid and let it absorb.

Coconut oil as a conditioner

Coconut oil makes your hair soft and silky and can be used as a conditioner. 

Allow about 2 tbsp coconut oil to melt in your hands and massage it into your hair once you have washed it.

You can rinse it out again after a short time. The optimal quantity of oil is different from person to person and depends on the length and thickness of your hair. 

You will have to experiment a little but your efforts will be rewarded – with beautiful sweeping hair that has a healthy shine.

The quality is crucial in coconut oil

Our tip: only use high-quality coconut oil. It should be cold pressed, unrefined, unbleached and natural. This will ensure that all the important nutrients, vitamins and minerals are preserved.

Mini-break for the senses using coconut oil

Is your summer holiday just a distant memory? Don’t worry. By using coconut oil in your hair you will be transported to exotic south sea beaches in the twinkling of an eye. 
Take a small quantity of the coconut oil, close your eyes and enjoy the fabulous scent of tropical coconut oil before you rub it in your hair or on your skin. Having a massage with coconut oil is also a wonderful escape from daily life and leaves the skin gently scented.
