Coconut oil has been on my favourite oil list for quite some time and is one of the best oils to use on the hair.
It helps stop protein loss from hair and has properties which mimic protein as well. You can read more about coconut oil in my earlier articles –

Is Coconut Oil Good for Hair?
When I began my hair journey, I started out with the coconut oil in the hair products section of the supermarket but the experience turned out to be a bad one.
The coconut oil brands I found usually had either mineral oil and/or liquid paraffin mixed in with them.
These two components sit on the hair surface and keep moisture out of the hair. They also lead to build up over a long period of use.
As I conducted more research, I moved onto the better grade of coconut oils. I have experimented with more than a few coconut oil brands over the last few years.
As a result, I’ve put together a list of the best seven organic coconut oil brands out there for hair.
All of the recommendations below have 5 common properties between them:
