Coconut Oil?

So what’s the go on this raw organic coconut oil craze and does it work on your hair and skin the way the internet makes you believe? Marcusse gives us the low down.

Working with a number of products and brands over the years I’m a firm believer that sometimes the basic simple approaches are the best and coconut oil is no exception. It’s packed with the goodness our skin loves and can be beneficial for the scalp and new hair growth. However the assumption that it’s a sure fire treatment for damaged hair is incorrect. The unfortunate truth is that coconut oil cannot heal excessively damaged hair better than most hair care products out there. Also it costs more to buy un Australia than good hair care products.

It’s great for oil pulling, post bathing skin treatments and regular maintenance on normal hair but in my opinion as a professional stylist I don’t recommend using this as a treatment alone for damaged hair caused by excessive colour and heat. See you hairdresser for the best possible solution for your damaged hair that won’t cost you the earth.
