If you are a person with a large volume of hair like me then you know its War when it comes to keeping your hair moisturized during the cold season. From frizziness to an itchy scalp to hair breakage sometimes it seems impossible to combat the dryness building up in your hair.
Here is what I do ( not because I am from Kerala 🙂 ), yes you guessed it right – Coconut oil
For body massage – Coconut oil with turmeric
For hair massage – Coconut oil with rosemary ( I love the fragrance it gives to the oil, it also boost immune system and increases blood circulation)
Orange peel body scrub – Takes away the excess oil from the body after the oil massage. Orange peel scrub is made at home with cleaned, sundried orange peel.
Why Coconut oil ?
For thousands of years, coconut oil has found itself among the most popular hair conditioners. By improving hair cuticle and scalp health, coconut oil can actually repair damaged hair. The antifungal properties also help eliminate the need for dandruff shampoos. All of these contribute to hair growth.
Fatty acids bind to the protein in hair and protect both the roots and strands of hair from breakage. Lauric acid is found in coconut oil and has better results than other mineral or sunflower oils when it comes to improving hair health. The natural antioxidants and nutrients found in coconut oil will deliver critical resources to improve your hair’s softness and luster. Coconut oil is rich in vitamin E, vitamin K and iron and effectively eliminates dandruff while boosting hair growth.
If possible cover your hair and scalp with a warm towel couple of times and shampoo your hair after 15- 20 minutes.
Have a ‘pampered’ Sunday !!
