Oil: Coconut Oil

Various natural oils are increasingly used in skin and hair care products, especially in ethnic hair products In Asian and African countries, vegetable oils are commonly used as hair pomades and are known to lead to healthy-looking hair. Deposition of oils on hair has been claimed to have a beneficial protective effect. Oil-based hair conditioners are thus believed to help prevent moisture loss from hair, which caused dryness and loss of elasticity. Specifically the beneficial effect of coconut oil on the prevention of cuticular damage during combing, when used as a prewash conditioner, has been demonstrated previously by protein loss and water retention measurement (International Journal of Cosmetic Science).
