Coconut oil is highly popular both in the kitchen and cosmetics. Few of us know that ‘coconut’ means ‘the tree of a thousand uses’ in the Malay language.
Thanks to valuable minerals, vitamins and the structure similar to human protein, coconut oil is ideal for thick and heavy low porosity hair. It is often used in the blend of oils; thanks to its content, other substances included in a cosmetic don’t weigh hair down. Coconut oil is one of penetrating oils – its tiny particles belong to the group of saturated fatty acids. That is why it is not recommended for damaged high porosity hair (it may cause frizz).
Coconut oil delivers an excellent protection from the wind, frost and blistering sun (contains natural sun protection SPF 10). It adds shine and creates an invisible, occlusive layer on hair surface that protects from toxins and harmful substances from the environment. It superbly nourishes the hair, brings gloss, bounce and vitality.
You should include it in your hair care and reach out for the best products with coconut oil. The following list presents 5 best ones that are worth our attention.

2. OGX Nourishing Coconut Milk Anti – Breakage Serum
Nourishing and reinforcing hair serum is composed of pure organic coconut milk, egg white proteins and coconut oil. OGX Nourishing Coconut Milk is a clear serum that nourishes, moisturises and protects hair from damage and unfavourable weather conditions. OGX hair serum with coconut oil helps to rebuild damaged hair and facilitates styling. It brings bounce, elasticity, increases shine and prevents breakage. The product contains shea butter that is also ideal for low porosity hair. Nourishing Coconut Milk Anti – Breakage Serum works like a leave-in conditioner. You can apply it a few times during the day. Regrettably, it is unsuitable for scalp oiling but is excellently tames flyaways and nourishes the hair.
3.Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil
The product comes in a small jar. It works as a hair mask, balm and oil. It should be used before washing. Apart from coconut oil, it also contains argan oil, macadamia oil, almond oil and grapeseed oil. The mask is intended for dehydrated hair. Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil combines the qualities of a hair oil, mask and balm. The manufacturer recommends using it once a week. You warm the mask with coconut oil between palms and apply to dry hair. Leave-in for 20 minutes. Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil makes the hair silky smooth, bouncy and lively. The mask provides easy combing and protects from heat emitted by blow-dryers and flat irons.
4. Najel Coconut hair and body butter
Najel is an all-natural hair and body butter free from synthetic and comedogenic substances. The product consists of four natural oils: rejuvenating shea butter; moisturising olive oil; argan oil for heat protection; nourishing coconut oil. Najel butter works for low and medium porosity hair, and all skin types. It is perfect for repairing dehydrated epidermis. Najel is quickly absorbed (both into the skin and hair). It delivers an amazing protection from the sunlight and other unfavourable weather conditions. It can be applied to the scalp so it reinforces the bulbs and keeps a proper level of moisture. What is more, the butter with coconut oil can be used for hair ends to prevent splitting. We must remember to warm Najel butter between palms or in a water bath before the application (coconut oil has a thick consistency and needs warmth to get more fluid and easier to apply).
5. Dove Advanced Hair Series, Pure Care Dry Oil
Dove can boast about lots of hair products. Surely, Dove Advanced Hair Oil is worth attention. It is a luxury serum intended for all hair types, especially frizzy and damaged hair lacking moisture and nutrients. It won’t work for scalp oiling but it can replace smoothing spray or leave-in conditioner. Coconut oil protects hair from high temperature and keeps toxins from penetrating the hair. A great deal of oils included in Dove Advanced Series guarantees moisture, repair, bounce and shine. Coconut oil is one of the most important substances in Dove Pure Care Dry Oil. Thanks to coconut oil, the cosmetic won’t weigh the hair down but will be easily absorbed and create an occlusive layer on hair surface that prevents toxins from getting inside. Dove Hair Oil can be applied many times during the day. It also works as a great additive to a traditional hair conditioner.
