Hair loss can be a natural part of the ageing process, and most of the time, it’s nothing to worry about. We can even lose up to 100 hairs on our bodies every day, without even noticing. But you could prolong the life of your locks by regularly using coconut oil, it’s been revealed.
Losing your hair could be caused by a number of different conditions, said the NHS.
Stress, weight loss, or even an iron deficiency can lead to some form of hair loss.
But, there are some home treatments you can use that might help to prevent some types of hair loss, including alopecia.
One of the easiest ways to stimulate hair growth at home is to simply use coconut oil, it’s been claimed.
“Your hair is said to be your crowning glory, and it’s normal to want to improve your hair if it’s not to your satisfaction,” it said.
“Coconut oil contains fatty acids that penetrate inside the hair shaft and reduce protein loss from hair.
“Massage coconut oil into your scalp and all of your hair. If your hair is dry, you can also use it as a leave-in treatment.
“There needs to be more research on coconut oil as a promoter of hair growth, but it’s been shown to improve the health and luster of hair and has been used for centuries.”
Losing your hair isn’t necessarily something to be worried about.
But, on rare occasions, it could be a tell-tale sign of another medical condition.
You should speak to a doctor if you suddenly start losing your hair, or if you develop bald patches.
There are other treatments for hair loss – including transplants – but they aren’t available on the NHS, and you’ll need to pay for them.
