Can I use red palm oil on my hair?

Red palm oil is derived from the fruit of the oil palm tree and is derived from the same portion of the palm tree as ordinary palm oil, but it is less processed and retains its red color. Red palm oil has been used for over 5,000 years, according to Livestrong, and provides several health advantages for our bodies and hair. It's a vegetable oil made from the fruit of the oil palm (Elaeis guineensis). Its red color comes from carotenes such as alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, and lycopene, which are the same minerals that give tomatoes and carrots their vibrant hues.

Red palm oil is also high in vitamin E, which promotes hair by encouraging hair follicle cell proliferation, resulting in stronger hair. Vitamin E also helps to prevent hair loss and graying. Red palm oil contains carotenes, which are responsible for cell growth and division, as well as preventing hair from becoming weak and brittle. According to Wikipedia, the saturated fats and lipids in this oil make it an excellent moisturizer for our skin and hair.

Palm oil for natural hair Treatment

Because of its anti-aging effects and capacity to eliminate oil (yes, oil can dissolve oil) and debris from skin and hair, palm oil can be found in shampoos, conditioners, soap, lotions, and other beauty products. It also contains a refatting ingredient, according to Livestrong, which will help restore our hair and skin's natural oils, which are known to be stripped away by ordinary soaps and shampoos.

Antibacterial characteristics in this miracle oil helps to eradicate parasites, clean the skin and scalp, and produce a better environment for hair growth. Is palm oil better than our miracle oil, coconut oil? Although they are both tropical oils derived from palm trees, their lipid and nutritional profiles differ, with palm oil having 45 percent saturated fat and a high amount of monounsaturated fat. Coconut oil contains almost 90% saturated fat. What exactly does that imply? Palm oil is the better choice for intake because the American Heart Association suggests limiting saturated fat (particularly tropical oils).

No other plant-based oil offers more vitamins A and E than red palm oil when it comes to our hair. Is it enough to convince curlies and coilies to abandon their beloved coconut oil in favor of red palm oil? No, I don't believe so, and for various reasons. Coconut oil isn't getting the same bad press that red palm oil is getting as it nears the end of its harvesting season. Green Palm Sustainability recommends purchasing certified sustainable palm oil (CSPO) while purchasing red palm oil because huge corporations are destroying forests to collect palm oil.

Red palm oil hair benefits

Palm oil's richness makes it ideal for all hair types, particularly those with dryness, hair loss, or scalp issues. It's always ideal to get your nutrition through food, but the beneficial vitamins in red palm oil are compelling reasons to use it in a product or a DIY hair recipe like Fred Fro's DIY Deep Conditioner.
