If you have never tried, your hair will love coconut oil! All types of hair are also concerned: fine hair, short hair, damaged or not, dry or fat, curly hair, long hair. There is a multitude of small beauty recipes to strengthen and nourish your hair.
Coconut oil indeed has a hydrating power tenfold thanks to lauric acid, the acid that is found in the natural state, except in breast milk! So you can combine this moisturizing power with various ingredients such as other exotic oils: pique oil will protect your hair, kukui oil will gain crepe or curly hair, or jojoba oil. Which will allow strengthening weakened hair.

One to two courses of oil pulling each year will fade stains due to dental appliances (yellow glue) or yellow teeth. You can win up to 3 shades of white per cure!
