Honey is little messy to apply but it can be mixed with several ingredients to enhance its efficiency.Honey gives best results when used with coconut oil.
Why coconut oil is so beneficial in softening and repairing your dull and damaged hair?
Coconut oil is rich in fatty acids that penetrate your scalp much deeper than other oils. Coconut oil repairs your damaged hair and moisturizes your scalp and makes it silky soft. Coconut is really light in texture which leaves no residue on hair when kept on hair. It controls frizz and makes your hair manageable and sleek. Coconut oil can remove the sebum from your scalp and makes your scalp bacterial-free and clean. Coconut oil also repairs damage done by chemicals on hair. Also coconut oil is natural sunscreen which shield your hair from harmful sun rays.
