The role of fatty acids
The fatty acids in coconut oil provide a powerful anti-dandruff formula that surpasses most dandruff shampoos. Regular application softens the body and makes the skin soft, reducing the production of hair and dandruff. The benefits of virgin coconut oil for your hair are amazing. Therefore, many people replace their traditional shampoos and conditioners with pure or high-density coconut oil products. Many people have started to use coconut oil for good purposes as it acts in the same way as hair gel or gel – without creating the usual flakes and without damaging the strength of the hair. This is due to coconut oil’s ability to retain water at almost any temperature.
