Is there anything coconut oil can't do? I've been wondering the same thing ever since coconut oil became all the rage. One of the best ways to use this miracle product is as a deep conditioner. The benefits of coconut oil for your hair are resplendent, and can make your locks healthier than some of the most posh and pricey conditioners out there. In fact, Lisa Carroll, a stylist for Ludlow Blunt in New York City tells Romper that coconut oil is the best thing to put on damp hair . "It's 100 percent natural and your hair follicles absorb it quickly," Blunt explains. "A lot of people think protein is best for hair, and protein rich conditioners are good, but for the deepest conditioning, a natural oil is best."
According to Glossier, the small molecular structure of coconut oil "increases your cell turnover rate, making it ideal for rejuvenating treatments." In other words, because it's such a pure and natural product, your body absorbs it quickly and uses it efficiently. Marina Strom, one of the herbalists from the highly holistic Earth Tu Face line told Glossier that she adores coconut oil for the hair because it's "powerfully protective and hydrating." This is great news for winter hair, which like the rest of your epidermis, gets extra dry with the cold weather. But what are the other benefits of coconut oil for your hair?
