Moroccan Oil vs. Coconut Oil

Moroccan oil usage is all the rave now. More and more ladies are buying this wonderful product. But 100% Moroccan oil is pricey, so most of the suppliers are selling a mix of other less expensive oils mixed with silicones to get a healthy hair look. Unfortunately, that only achieves a cosmetic effect. To truly achieve strong healthy hair you need to invest lots of time on regular basics in a good treatment routine.  Fatty acids, which is one of the components of any oil’s composition, is an effective sealant to keep hair moisturized and strong, and they also help restore damaged and dried out hair to look better.

The closest alternative to Moroccan oil is Coconut oil in the level of fatty acids, and at the micro-chemistry level, the difference between the hair healing effect of the two oils is minimal. But because of the exclusivity of Moroccan Oil, that makes it a more desirable product.

Coconut oil is an edible oil extracted from the kernel of coconuts picked from the palm Cocos Nucifera. In addition to restoring the luster and vitality of your hair, coconut oil is a great remedy for hair regrowth and an excellent scalp treatment. If you experience dry scalp or dandruff, coconut oil will help manage both of these conditions. Coconut oil conditions hair strand from within, supplying the hair follicles with enough moisture to protect them from heat and environmental damage.

Hair Growth Tips

Here is a inexpensive recipe for hair rejuvenating and shine:

You’ll need to stir 3 tablespoon of coconut oil with 1/2 tablespoon of lime juice or 10 drops of lemon or grapefruit essential oil and 3 drops of rosemary essential oil. If the coconut oil isn’t in liquid form, then carefully microwave it until the oil melts.  Apply the mixture to dry hair and place a shower cap or plastic wrap over your hair with a warm towel or use a dryer for a few minutes right after application. Wait 20 to 45 minutes, then wash and condition the hair.  Repeat once a week or as often as needed.
