Healthy hair isn’t shy about telling you so. It shines, holds a style, and doesn’t break. Without moisture, hair can appear dry and become prone to breakage when it’s dehydrated. This is particularly true for natural curls and waves, which tend to soak up moisture. That’s why it’s so important that your curls are nourished with the right ingredients to enhance their natural beauty and keep them looking gorgeous and nothing makes your curls pop like the power of coconut & shea butter combined together. Let’s dive into what makes this combo so amazing for your hair and why you need to use products containing them.
Let’s talk about coconut oil first. Coconut oil is known to be extremely rich in natural fatty acids, which makes it an amazing moisturizing product. Unlike other oils, coconut oil is able to penetrate deep into the hair shaft. Other oils can be less effective, as they just sit atop your hair’s surface. Coconut oil has been a wonder for the curly hair community because it naturally helps to add moisture and heal the hair cuticle. Regular use of coconut oil on curly hair also helps to increase shine and manageability, and decrease tangles & frizz.
Those with curlier hair are prone to having drier hair. Thus, unlocking the market of the thousands of chemical products aimed to prevent frizziness and brittleness in curly hair. But what if there was a product that was 100% natural and could boost your strands tenfold in terms of nourishment and shininess? Say hello to coconut oil.
When added to your hair routine, coconut oil helps heal protein loss, adds moisture and makes the hair stronger over time. Using coconut oil on your hair regularly can also help increase the shine, softness, and manageability while simultaneously decreasing frizz.
