Benefits of Coconut Oil and Honey Hair Mask
Here are some of the benefits of using coconut oil and honey hair mask-
1. Prevents Hair Loss
Coconut oil has fatty acids that penetrate deep into the hair shaft, regenerating hair by providing them enough protein. It has medium-chain triglycerides (a type of fat) that increases the volume of hair.
Whereas, honey has anti-microbial agents and antioxidant properties giving your hair complete nourishment. It also has Polyphenols, that repairs the damaged hair tissues. Honey and coconut oil are also perfect for unclogging the hair follicles which is a major reason for hair loss. Honey is rich in Vitamin C which is helpful in Collagen production for better hair growth.
2. Enriched With Enzymes, Vitamins, and Minerals
Honey is filled with anti-bacterial enzymes, anti-oxidants, and minerals that nourish your scalp and hair follicles. It has an enzyme named glucose oxidase which gives hydrogen peroxide, responsible for lightening the hair. Honey is rich in Vitamin B5, which controls the color of your hair.
3. Prevents Dandruff
Coconut oil and honey have antifungal, antibacterial and antiseptic properties, that prevent dandruff and scalp infections. Honey is a natural humectant, that holds the moisture onto your hair scalp, thereby reducing dandruff. It’s a natural source of alpha-hydroxy acids, that helps in scalp exfoliation, which is necessary for healthy hair.
4. Prevents Hair Breakage
Coconut oil has lauric acid (Saturated Fatty Acid) that locks the protein in the hair. This fatty acid also protects the root and strands and prevents hair breakage. Using harmful toxic shampoos can lead to hair breakage, but honey as a natural emollient provides enough moisture to your hair. Honey has Keratin (Protein) which promotes your hair growth.
