Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil Hair Treatment - GIVEAWAY!!!


Coconut oil has been used for hair treatment in coconut producing countries such as India and the Philippines for thousands of years. Studies in India have been done on how effective various oils are on treating damaged hair. The study compared mineral oil, sunflower oil, and coconut oil because these were the three most commonly used oils in hair treatment products used in India. The aim of this study was to cover different treatments, and the effect of these treatments on various hair types using these three oils. The number of experiments to be conducted was a very high number, and a technique termed as the "Taguchi Design of Experimentation" was used.


Their results:
The findings clearly indicate the strong impact that coconut oil application has to hair as compared to application of both sunflower and mineral oils. Among three oils, coconut oil was the only oil found to reduce the protein loss remarkably for both undamaged and damaged hair when used as a pre-wash and post-wash grooming product. Both sunflower and mineral oils do not help at all in reducing the protein loss from hair. This difference in results could arise from the composition of each of these oils. Coconut oil, being a triglyceride of lauric acid (principal fatty acid), has a high affinity for hair proteins and, because of its low molecular weight and straight linear chain, is able to penetrate inside the hair shaft. Mineral oil, being a hydrocarbon, has no affinity for proteins and therefore is not able to penetrate and yield better results. In the case of sunflower oil, although it is a triglyceride of linoleic acid, because of its bulky structure due to the presence of double bonds, it does not penetrate the fiber, consequently resulting in no favorable impact on protein loss. (Rele AS, Mohile RB. "Effect of mineral oil, sunflower oil, and coconut oil on prevention of hair damage." Journal Cosmetology Science 2003 Mar-Apr;54(2):175-92.)

I like to use the Tropical Traditions hair treatment after I shampoo. I let the jar sit in the bottom of the tub and allow the warm water to run over it to soften it. The I cover my hair with it, focusing on the tips. I sit and relax or do my shaving and then I rinse out the treatment. I follow with two vigorous shampoos and then conditioner.

At first, I used once a week, but it has seemed to fortify my hair and now I think I'll try once a month.

Depending on your individual hair type, you will know how many times to shampoo after the treatment and how often you need to use the treatment.

I will say one thing I have noticed after several treatments, my hair started off difficult to run my fingers through. Currently, it is much nicer. I have had my hair in a pony all day and I just pulled the band out and ran my fingers straight through my hair. Normally I only get those results if my hair is straightened and with a silicone based shine product. The results I just had are from around the house, cleaning the house, pony hair. I attribute this to using Tropical Traditions Hair Treatment.

Just note that it can leave your hair feeling greasy - you have to adjust the process to fit your hair type. Just knowing that it's natural, been used in hair for centuries, and there are no chemicals in this product makes it well worth playing with it to find how it best suits you.
