Benefits of Organic Coconut Oil for Hair

Benefits of Coconut Oil for Your Hair

Have you wondered why most people living in the tropics have beautiful hair and skin? The answer is not a surprise; for years they have used the oil of 'the Tree of Life.'

Coconut oil is considered an all-natural, multi-tasking haircare product with a lot of benefits, such as:

Conditioning Properties

According to a study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Science, the lauric acid in coconut oil reduces protein loss that causes dryness and breakage. It penetrates the hair shaft and nourishes the hair with medium-chain fatty acids.

Hair Growth

Coconut oil helps improve blood circulation when applied to the scalp with a massage. This treatment makes hair follicles healthy and supports hair growth.


This itchy problem can be caused by dry skin or sensitivity to the harsh chemicals in hair care products. It can also be a result of fungal infections. Coconut oil’s medium-chain fatty acids have potent antiviral, antimicrobial and antifungal properties that fight the fungus that may be hidden on your scalp. While its nourishing and moisturizing properties can help prevent dandruff caused by dry skin.


Coconut oil improves hair break stress by penetrating the hair shaft. It makes it easier to remove knots after washing and disguises split ends.
It also helps prevent thermal damage, tames flyaways and frizz by penetrating into the curls.

Lice Treatment / Prevention

Since coconut oil penetrates the hair shaft and the scalp, it contributes to repel lice and to prevent eggs from attaching to the hair. The most important consideration is that it does not produce the characteristic scalp irritation with conventional chemical treatments.

All the mentioned benefits may be reduced or affected significantly if you use industrial coconut oil extracted with heat and chemicals. Always look for oil certified as organic to be sure to receive its natural nutrients. After intensive research, RHB selected Kelapa Organics, an Australian company that carries the Australian Certified Organic BUD logo. That logo is a recognized and respected symbol of integrity to consumers.

Most men have more symptoms of hair shedding and other issues between September and November because the hair follicles enter their resting (telogen) phase mid-summer. This causes more hair than normal to fall out. The follicles will stay in this phase for several months, but the hair will begin to regrow in winter when Mother Nature thinks you need it most.
