Coconut oil and lemon recipe against gray hair
It is widely known that coconut oil can provide many healthy benefits. It has antimicrobial properties, and it contains lauric and fatty acids which can strengthen the root and the hair. Moreover, they will stimulate the hair to grow again. These fatty acids along with vitamins nourish the scalp, and can remove sebum buildup, which is made from hair follicles.
As we said before coconut oil is extremely beneficial, and this is confirmed by the many cosmetic products which have the oil as the main ingredient. Coconut oil can provide positive effects for your hair as it can reduce protein loss in damaged hair, stimulate hair growth, moisturize dry hair, soften the hair and gives shiny look, etc.
Lemon, on the other hand, is great for the hair due to the fact that it is abundant with vitamin C, and its content of phosphorus, vitamin B, and phytonutrients which have antioxidant properties. Lemon is so effective for the hair that even doctors recommend it for prevention of white hair.
