Hair loss is a problem that many men and women face today. According to recent studies, hair loss is found in as many as 70 percent of men, and in women, who are considered less likely to have this problem. Statistics show otherwise with about 30 percent of women face or will face hair loss later on in life. However, in women, hair loss usually does not end with total baldness, as is the case with men. According to studies, using coconut oil could help to increase hair growth.
According to research published in the International Journal of Ethics in Engineering & Management Education, combining natural products produces the most promising results.
Malaysian researchers have demonstrated that a mixture of coconut oil (Cocos nucifera) and Nigella sativa is very effective in promoting hair growth.
The researchers in the study concluded: “The mixture among coconut oil and Nigella sativa is the most effective to promote hair growth than others, thus it has potential as an alternative way to be used for hair treatment in the future.
“Further study is suggested to identify the effectiveness of coconut oil and olive oil with Nigella sativa extracts in promoting hair growth.”
