The changing seasons can often affect our skin but did you know they can also affect your hair? The cold air in winter can make your hair dry, fluffy and flyaway but thankfully coconut oil could help you.

If you’re searching for a product to restore your hair back to its usual soft and silky state, coconut oil is packed with natural fatty acids that can repair damage, improve texture and bring that elusive shine back.

In 2015, scientists tested plant-based oils on human hair. The study revealed that coconut oil is similar to natural hair proteins and has the ability to penetrate deep into the hair shaft. Because of this, the coconut oil can reduce the amount of water absorbed into your hair which helps to limit everyday hair damage.

So, if you’re a fan of dying or bleaching your hair, or you use straighteners or curlers, regularly using coconut oil could help protect your hair from excess damage.

If you’re suffering from dandruff or a dry and itchy scalp coconut oil might also be the answer. By applying it regularly it could help to repair the skin barrier on the top of your skin to help fight scalp flaking.

How do you use coconut oil on your hair?

There are a number of ways you can use this magic oil in your hair:

Hair Mask: Massage a teaspoon of oil through your hair and leave it on overnight for a super deep conditioning treatment. Just make sure you wear something on your head to protect your pillows from the oil.

Styling: For an easy way to tame frizz, add a tiny amount of coconut oil to your fingertips or a comb for those flyaway hairs.

Conditioner: After you’ve washed your hair with shampoo, add a few drops of coconut oil to the ends before washing out. Alternatively, you can add it to the conditioner you already use to give it an extra boost.

Here, we’ve rounded up some of the best coconut oils for hair available to buy right now, all for under £15.
