Coconut Oil For Dandruff

If you are searching for a deep moisturizing hair treatment that is naturally organic, that effectively fights against a dandruff problem, then you are in the right place.  Coconut Oil is hands down one of the best conditioners for hair and it has the added benefit of eliminating scalp conditions that cause dandruff. Its remarkable ability to create healthy hair and scalps come from its molecular structure and unique fatty acids that can pass through cells’ membranes to penetrate deeply and bring antiviral and antifungal healing into the roots of the hair.

Get rid of dandruff

Dandruff is caused by a fungal condition on the scalp and at the root level of the hair called candida overgrowth. With regular usage, coconut oil can relieve these conditions by killing the fungus in the scalp and returning it to a clear state. Another aspect of coconut oil that is good for preventing and healing dandruff is the strong antioxidant levels found in coconut oil.  It protects from the sun’s damage and fights off the free radicals that are constantly bombarding us throughout the day.

To use coconut oil to get rid of dandruff apply a teaspoon or so to damp hair and massage it into the scalp gently.  Allow it to stay on as long as possible.  A few hours is good, but if you can do it,  applying it at night and sleeping with it in the hair gives an added boost to the healing properties of coconut oil.  Some people even leave it on for a day or two.  Sometimes it takes a few pieces of washing to get it all out.  You should aim to do this deep treatment once a week.  What will work best is to develop a regular routine and stick to is consistent.  You will see the results.

Massaging coconut oil into your scalp puts the power of the coconut oil to work for you with its antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial properties and helps you get rid of that bothersome dandruff once and for all, leaving your hair smelling sweet and natural too!
