Coconut oil can work wonders on your hair extensions. It is often a problem with most hair extensions going dry or the scalp becomes itchy and dry.

After paying lots of money to have your hair done, the last thing snyone wants is a dull, shine-less heap of straw like looking hair. Coconut oil is really popular now and many conditioning products are coming up in the hair and beauty industry. For hair extensions it can be aall-in-one remedy; it can give the hair natural moisture and shine, thereby helping to restore some of the vitality and shine.

You can use coconut oil for massaging the scalp, conditioning hair, and also to make your tresses healthy and beautiful. Virgin coconut oil which is derived from fresh coconuts, can be used against several hair problems.

So, what can you use coconut oil for hair? Well, here are 9 suggestions:


1. Coconut Oil Promotes Hair Health


When it comes to accelerating hair growth, there is nothing better than coconut oil for stimulating your scalp because the fatty acids in coconut oil bind to the protein in hair to offer support to the roots as well as strands. Those with thin, flat, rough and dry hair can make their hair grow thicker, softer and shinier by using some pure virgin coconut oil on the scalp.

2. Coconut Oil Makes Hair Manageable


Coconut oil makes maintaining long hair extensions so much easier. Those who like to have their hair long should consider using coconut oil twice a week and thus slow down hair breakage and shreddage, dry hair and dull looking hair. Only use small amount so as not to make the hair feel greasy.


3. Coconut Oil Acts as a Conditioner


Many hair conditioning products have coconut as an ingredient. Coconut oil is a natural hair conditioner you can use. Owing to its easy molecular structure, coconut oil can easily penetrate into the hair shaft and work with the natural hair proteins on your own hair along with conditioning your hair extensions. This is why coconut oil for hair loss in not a myth and have been used for hundreds of years. It can be used to treat other hair-related conditions such as dry scalp or fungal conditions like seborrheic dermatitis which result in itchy flakes.

4. Coconut Oil Acts as a Hair Shampoo


A lot of shampoos contain Coconut oils. You can minimise protein loss during washing if you use coconut oil due to the presence of medium-chain triglycerides that can pass through the cell membrane and act as waterproof on the scalp and hair. Moreover, the natural antioxidants in coconut oil is better for your hair as it works naturally.

5. Massage – Coconut Oil Hair Treatment


Moisture is essential for healthy hair and is also one of the main causes of hair problems. Massaging the scalp with coconut oil penetrates the hair shaft, protects against environmental impurities and excessive heat. It enhances blood circulation and oxygen delivery to your hair, keeping them healthy.

You can mix coconut oil with lime juice and apply it to your hair; this prevents hair loss. Another benefit of massaging scalp with coconut oil is relaxation. When you feel relaxed, chemicals get released throughout your body that soothe all parts of the body, including the hair.

6. Coconut Oil Prevents Hair Loss/Hair Breakage


Coconut oil hair treatment is nothing new. Coconut oil has been used for a long time particularly by people in tropical regions. If you want to prevent hair breakage, turn to coconut oil orally and internally. Hair is one part of our body that is quite sensitive to changes in the body. Stress, malnutrition, hormone imbalance, pollution and chemicals can contribute to hair problems such as hair loss and hair breakage. When you use coconut oil on hair regularly, you don’t lose strands of hair that easy. This is how coconut oil takes care of hair breakage, hair loss and keeps other hair problems at bay.

7. Coconut Oil Prevents and treats dandruff


Dandruff, a condition of flaking and itchy scalp, is one of the common hair complaints. If you want to reduce your risk of getting it or treat it, coconut oil can help you with that. Rich in vitamin E, vitamin K and iron, coconut oil helps you get rid of dandruff besides boosting hair growth.

8. Coconut Oil Fights baldness


Some people use hair extensions to disguise hair loss. The use of coconut oil on the scalp promotes hair growth as well as counter hair loss and combat baldness. Coconut oil is an antibacterial as well as an anti-fungal and full of medium chain triglycerides which prevent hair loss besides giving the hair more body. Coconut oil use makes hair stronger and restores all the necessary natural oils, preventing hair from breaking and allowing them to grow. Coconut oil also helps reduce the loss of protein in the hair.

Benefits of using Almond Oil to Pre-Condition Hair Extensions

Almond Oil can help keep Hair Extensions hydrated

One of the most common problems with some hair extensions after a few weeks wear or after washing them they can become dry, frizzy or stringy.  Hair extensions that are exposed to central heating, air conditions or electric lights will dry out much quicker than your natural hair and need daily rehydration with a leave in conditioner and at least one deep conditioning treatments every 14 days.

We are all familiar with the Almond nut but most people don’t know much about the oils and how to use it.

The Almond Nut Family

Almonds are a Rosacea family in the Amygdalus subenus and the genus Prunus. They originated in the Levant region of the Middle East and have since been used worldwide in healing and culinary applications. There are two types of commercially grown almonds, bitter almonds or Amygdalus communis and sweet almonds or Prunus amygdalus dulcis.

Benefits of Almond Oil for Hair

Almond oil has several important nutrients including polyunsaturated and mono fatty acids as well as vitamins E, D, B1, B2, B6 and A. These are all helpful nutrients that allow you to grow strong, healthy hair strands.

The high vitamin E content in almond oil is particularly helpful for conditioning the hair. Sweet almond oils can safely be used to in aroma therapy to carry these oils with no side effects. This is helpful in conditioning the hair and skin.

Many hair care products will add almond oil because of the nourishing and smoothing benefits it provides the hair cuticles, allowing people to grow thick, long, strong hair. It can be used to make your hair shinier. You can also mix almond oil with tea tree or neem oil and massage it into the scalp to increase circulation and relieve dandruff. Regularly massaging a combination of almond, rosemary and lavender oil in the hair can help reduce the amount of hair that falls out each day.

Use Almond Oil to improve your hair condition

Uses of Almond Oil for Hair for the ScalpMassage the oil into your scalp for 15-20 minutes, then massage a bit into the hair. If you have the time allow the almond oil to sit for at least 45 minutes, but you can also leave it in overnight. After it has been allowed to sit, rinse it away with your regular shampoo.For Hair Growth Combine 3 tablespoons of almond oil in a bowl with a pinch of cayenne pepper and three tablespoons of black castor oil. Warm the mixture slightly and apply it to the scalp and massage it in for 10 minutes.Wrap your head in a towel and leave the mixture in place for an hour.Then wash the oil away with shampoo.

Repeat this ritual twice a week for a few months to see thicker hair start to grow.

For Split Ends

Those that suffer from split ends can massage it into the hair to help keep your hair from splitting.

For Silky Soft Hair Create a thick paste with water and rice flour and allow it to sit overnight.The next day add an egg and three tablespoons of sweet almond oil into the mixture and allow it to sit for 10 minutes. You can also add a few drops of lavender oil or rose water if you find the smell of the egg unpleasant.

Apply the mixture to your hair and allow it to sit on the hair for an hour then wash it off with cool water. Towel your hair and allow it to dry. Add an additional dose of almond oil to your scalp and leave it in place overnight before shampooing your hair again.

This will give your hair a silk appearance. It is recommended to take on this process on the weekend as it takes a long time to complete.
