Coconut Oil Replaces Shampoo and Conditioner?

I’m getting thin hair and baldness is starting to show. I wonder if it’s possible to only use coconut oil and no more shampoo and conditioner?

Hi Oliva,

Yes, it is possible to only use coconut oil and no more shampoo and conditioner. In fact, if you can’t find a mild and gentle shampoo and conditioner, you’re better off not using them at all. Many commercial hair care products are loaded with harmful chemicals that not only damage your hair, but also weaken your immune system.

In my case for instance, I don’t use conditioners. Using a very mild shampoo that contains no cancer-causing Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES), I only shampoo my hair three times a week.

I massage a generous but not dripping amount of coconut oil on my hair AND scalp right after taking a bath. This hair care regimen has given me smooth, soft, manageable hair and dandruff-free, itch-free scalp. And yes, it has helped a lot in my baldness problem.

Prior to using coconut oil, I was also beginning to get bald, especially up top. My hair was getting thinner by the month. After about a month or so of massaging coconut oil daily on my hair and deep on my scalp, my hairline stopped receding. New hair was growing along my hairline, especially up top, which was my main concern area.

Currently (years later), I’m down to three times a week and my hair is still getting thicker. Please give coconut oil a fair try. Give it at least a couple of months and use it daily in the first month or so. Stop using unnatural hair care products. The chemicals in these products are helping a lot in making you bald.

Since time immemorial, coconut oil has been used by countless generations to keep their crowning glory just that – glorious!

Hope this helps,
