According to one study, coconut oil is the only oil that reduces protein loss for both damaged and undamaged hair. Coconut oil is hydrophobic, meaning it repels water.

Whenever applied as a pre-wash treatment; coconut oil penetrates deeper into the hair shaft.

This can also explain why so many rave about the oil’s ability to stop “the frizzies” in humid weather as this is another feature of its hydrophobic activity.

Therefore, if your looking for a well groomed look with less frizz, rub a tiny bit of coconut oil in your palms and apply to your hair and style as normal.
