FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT COCONUT OIL HAIR MASKS
How do you remove coconut oil from the hair?
Take the required quantity of your shampoo in a mug or bowl. Add water to make a thin solution. Now pour this all over the scalp and massage well. In this way, the shampoo gets distributed all over the scalp and removes oil and dirt. If you apply shampoo directly to your scalp, the thick viscosity of the shampoo prevents it from spreading resulting in greasy limp hair.
Does coconut oil helps to grow hair?
YES. The vitamins and fatty acids in the coconut oil nourishes the hair follicles which in turn results in healthy hair growth.
How long does it takes to show the result?
It varies from person to person. On an average you can see the improvement after 1 month of consistent usage.
