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.
