The many benefits of coconut oil

The many benefits of coconut oil

By now, most of us have heard about coconut oil and its benefits, but some people still only think of coconut oil for cooking or as a natural ingredient in our beauty products. 

However, coconut oil has been used worldwide for thousands of years to treat everything from sickness to aiding skin and hair ailments. In Sanskrit, the coconut palm translates to mean "the tree that supplies all that I need to live." How amazing is that! 

So many benefits 

Coconut oil is an excellent moisturizer, due to its naturally occurring, deep-hydrating properties. Its high concentrations of lauric and capric acids penetrate the hair to treat it with the nutrients necessary to achieve healthy growth, and it also helps your scalp develop collagen to strengthen hair from root to tip. 

Naturally made up of essential vitamins and fatty acids, when used for massage, coconut oil nourishes the scalp and helps to remove sebum build-up from hair follicles. It can also help maintain healthy protein building blocks to keep hair feeling hydrated and soft. 

Safer for our environment 

Thankfully, the coconut itself has many uses aside from its oil for haircare, which is one reason why it’s becoming an ethical alternative to palm oil. Palm oil is a popular ingredient in beauty products, but it has been known to have a devastating impact on the environment

Another benefit is that coconuts do not require the number of pesticides and herbicides to grow, which means less impact on our oceans. Hair La Vie is committed to doing our part to reduce waste and to protect the ocean and sea-life, and we strive to use clean ingredients that leave a smaller footprint in our oceans and on our bodies.

With 11 natural ingredients, including keratin, essential oils, and coconut oil, the Hair La Vie Mask is designed to give you that deep salon-style conditioning in the comfort of your own home. This is your line of defense against dry, lifeless hair, and without added sulfates or parabens, you can feel at ease knowing you’re doing your part to keep unwanted chemicals out of our oceans.
