Cracked coconut next to solid and liquid coconut oil…Dr. Axe

Coconut oil

Coconut oil is an oil taken from the meat or innards of the coconut fruit. It can be ingested, applied topically to the skin and hair, and has been used for oral cleaning. Coconut oil contains a high amount of saturated fat, polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat, vitamin E, vitamin K, iron, and phytosterols – which, according to livestrong.com, have cancer shielding effects.

The nature of African-American course hair is that it quickly absorbs humidity. Coconut oil is high in fat which means it can aid in keeping hair healthy. Use it alone or mix it with other oils.
