Can coconut oil grow your hair long

Shiney Says…Can coconut oil grow my hair long?

The Beauty Brains respond:

The Beauty Brains previously wrote that coconut oil was one of the few oils that could actually penetrate hair and provide great conditioning. For that reason it’s better than many other oils – both natural AND synthetic.  So it may help keep your hair from breaking, which means you may be able to grow it longer. But that doesn’t mean it’s going to actually change the way your hair grows. Except for a few approved drugs and laser treatments, there is nothing that’s been demonstrated to increase hair growth. That depends mostly on genetics!

    Yes, This is so true, If you want healthier hair that grows in thick and strong, coconut oil is the best choice for your hair. Coconut milk also helps the hair grow long and thick.

      Yes, Coconut oil is one of the best natural nutrition for hair. It helps in healthy growth of hair providing them a shiny complexion. It is effective in reducing the protein loss for damaged and undamaged hair. I bought Cocozia coconut oil from Amazon.

    It can be super curly with no frizz, semi curly or
    just plain straight. t forget to get some waxing done to get you ready for bikini season. If youu have a round face, do nnot try to follow Taylor Swift wavy hair.
    This is also good for people with a square face like Minni Drivers.

    I tried coconut oil on my hair, and it just made it very static-y – why does this happen?

      Oils are typically very non-polar and they’re not good at conducting charge. That means they’ll let static electricity build up on your hair. You might try using a light leave in spray when you use coconut oil to get rid of the fly aways.

    What about castor oil? Another myth?

    • Randy Schueller December 6, 2016, 8:06 am

      I’m not aware of any data showing that castor oil improves hair growth.
