It fills up the hair shaft and makes hair look more dense – giving it more body. It also gives each hair strand extra protection benefits.

When the coconut oil penetrates the hair shaft, it prevents this swelling from occuring and therefore reducing the chance of possible hair damage.

Coconut oil conditions the hair from within, supplying moisture to hair follicles which protects the hair from heat and the environment.
