Coconut oil: helps fight dandruff and strengthen hair
Essential fatty acids and vitamins naturally present in coconut oil deeply nourish the scalp and help remove the accumulated sebum from the hair follicles. Use natural and organic coconut oil regularly to combat dandruff problems, leather irritation (due to the use of shampoos and aggressive chemical treatments) and to support the growth of strong and robust hair.
Every evening, after washing the hair with a mild shampoo and drying it, pour in a bowl a quantity of coconut oil proportionate to their length (if necessary slightly heat the coconut oil in a bain-marie until it is liquid).
At this point, use your fingers to gently massage the scalp with oil. If you have long hair, try putting yourself upside down and proceed to the message until the oil is evenly distributed over the leather. Wrap your head with a towel or a cloth and let the coconut oil work through the night.
Day after day you can say goodbye to leather irritations and you will have healthy, strong and shiny hair!
Small tip: in the morning, before drying your hair, distribute your organic coconut oil evenly from the roots to the tips and then proceed to dry. In addition to strengthening them and making them shiny, coconut oil will act as a filter to protect them from the sun's rays!
