If you have your roots in the coastal regions just like mine, you will know Coconuts are a favourite. We all know that this ancient fruit offers an array of benefits that can improve one's overall health, from playing as a hero in vegetable stews to being the go-to for a relaxing head massage. A powerhouse of vitamins and Lauric acid, it is often touted as a natural moisturising and hair-strengthening agent. For the hair that is prone to dryness, it’s a saviour that can soften, nourish from deep-within and pamper one’s hair to the core. 

 

Apart from using it as a hair oil, one of the basic ways to incorporate it into your hair care regimen is to extract the milk by shredding the coconut. A weekly hair soak can provide more than just TLC. Here are my favourite hair masks that are quick to make and coddle your hair with all things love.
