I bet you already know that coconut oil is amazing for you. It's good for your health, skin, teeth (yes!), and hair too. I'll focus on the hair for now, and I'll tell you five reasons why you should use coconut oil for your hair.

1. Coconut oil as a deep moisturizer.

The first reason why you should use coconut oil for your hair, is that it works as a deep moisturizer. Coconut oil doesn't evaporate easily from the hair, thus it captures moisture inside for a long time resulting in moist and soft hair.

2. Coconut oil as a conditioner.

Throw away all the artificial conditioners you have at your shower, and start using coconut oil. Just heat it before you go to bed, and apply it onto your hair. Make sure to put on a shower cap! Wash your hair first thing in the morning, and enjoy moist and soft hair all day long. Definitely a great reason to use coconut oil for your hair, because it's natural and not loaded with chemicals.

3. Coconut oil to repair damaged hair.

You hair got damaged during summertime? No worries, because one of the reasons you should use coconut oil for your hair, is to repair it from damage. Coconut oil is full of lauric acid; it is something that reduces the protein loss in your hair. The coconut oil penetrates through your hair shafts, and works its wonders.

4. Coconut oil as an anti-dandruff.

If you suffer from dandruff, then you should use coconut oil for your hair. The regular use or application of coconut oil will eventually make dandruff disappear. With some lukewarm water and castor oil, you can get optimum results.

5. Coconut oil as a hair growth helper.

Had a bad haircut and want to stimulate your hair growth? Another reason you should use coconut oil for your hair, is that it helps your grow. What to do? Apply a mixture of coconut oil and lime-water on your hair, and it will help eliminate your hair loss.
