Think Twice About Using Coconut Oil On Your Hair

Think Twice About Using Coconut Oil On Your Hair| www.thetressclub.com

Coconut oil has quickly taken over our world. We use it in our food, we use it on our skin, and sometimes even in our hair- because something so versatile and magical must be good for the hair, right?

Not exactly... There are a few good reasons why we should leave hair masking to the professional products and keep them out of our kitchen cabinets.

 

Oil And Water Don’t Mix

& that’s a fact! Hair that is dirty needs to be cleaned with water and shampoo- if it is coated in coconut oil it will form a barrier around your strands that will make it hard for the water and shampoo to cleanse all the other yucky stuff out.

 

Too Much Protein Is Bad For Your Hair

Everything in moderation- even protein! When you overdo it on the protein, you change the hair shaft's structure, leaving it overly brittle and more susceptible to breakage. Think of an uncooked spaghetti noodle: it may be strong but it is not flexible. In fact, if you bend it too much it will break, and so will your hair.

 

It Can Cause Buildup At The Scalp

No one likes an oily root, or that half-cleaned smell of your hair and certainly not flaky dandruff. After a few weeks you will notice a large amount of buildup at your scalp since the oil is keeping your shampoo from doing its thang. This will also cause clogged pores and breakouts on your scalp and face.

 

The takeaway? There is a reason why professionally formulated masks and hair oils exist! They are designed to give your hair everything it needs, while easily being rinsed out with water and shampoo.
