It is to note that some coconut oil we know has an awful smell. This is because of the copra used which has a rancid smell.
While virgin coconut oil has a pleasant fresh coconut aroma scent, is more pleasing. In fact the aroma will altogether go away after maximum 15 minutes of application. So I suggest using virgin coconut oil in the hair as it is more pleasant and do not leave rancid smell in the hair.
Virgin coconut oil provided protein to the root of the hair thus providing nourishment which enhanced the growth and prevent dry hair.
