Coconut oil consists mainly of medium-chain triglyceride fats. These triglyceride fats have the perfect molecular structure to improve the supply of nutrients in the scalp and the hair follicles.

The microflora on the scalp interacts with lauric acid to form monolaurin, which has very effective antifungal and anti-bacterial properties and can destroy so many forms of Candida and other infectious agents. These stable MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides) act as a natural antioxidant and protect the follicles from the damage caused by free radicals and hair loss.

I was not aware that coconut oil could be used for so many different things. I use dandruff shampoo once a week as a precautionary measure but I don’t like the smell. It’s full of toxins that I know for sure. So this is an idea and I might look into it or something similar anyway.
However the smell of coconut for me is so delicious – I am totally taken with the smell and I have used coconut products before – but I always seem to be hungry as the smell is a constant reminder of one of my favorite treats.
Great informative post.
I see you like coconut 🙂
there are coconut oils which have no smell.
I usually use the smelling ones for cooking,
over rice,this is a delight .Other non-smelling
oils are available for other use and they are not as expensive.
I use it together with essential oils for massage for example.
For dandruff you also can use other oils,here a recipe:
Mix the juice of 1 lemon in 1 cup of plain yogurt. Add a little olive oil to it and mix well. Apply it on your slightly wet hair, especially on the roots. Wear a shower cap for 30 minutes before rinsing it out with lukewarm water. Do this once or twice a week.
I hope this helps it is not toxic
