Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil For Hair?
Swanson Health • February 2, 2012

Coconut Oil has a lot of health benefits, primarily revolving around energy (since the Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) are metabolized quickly for energy), being a good source of Lauric Acid and Caprylic Acid, plus it’s a much healthier (and low carb) oil to cook with compared to other cooking oils. But there are many other uses for coconut oil that are often overlooked. One of the best coconut oil benefits is for hair health.

Not many people may think about putting this butter-like substance in your hair after all the shampoo commercials that talk about removing the oils and “built up gunk” that’s on your hair, but it makes sense when you look at the details. The MCTs are absorbed quickly and easily not only by your stomach, but by each strand of hair as well. This oil absorption can lead to healthier and more moisturized hair. Many people who use coconut oil on their hair on occasion tend to have silkier and more beautiful hair and even a healthier scalp if the coconut oil gets into the scalp during application.
