What is Coconut Oil?

Coconut Oil is one of the most popular oils in health & beauty. Known widely for it's many  health benefits, this "Tropical Topical" oil is taken internally for health benefits and as a topical treatment to nourish skin & hair.  Added to hair care routines and products, Coconut Oil boasts a list of benefits a mile long!


The environmental impact of Coconut Oil is very low.  Growing coconuts doesn't require pesticides or herbicides, and coconuts are harvested by hand, which make them very eco-friendly and highly sustaibnable. Coconuts harvested for Coconut Oil used in commercial products are grown in the island countries of Fiji and Samoa, but are also grown in many coastal and tropical areas like the Philippine Islands, India, Thailand and Indonesia.


Coconut Oil is beneficial for curly hair as it is mostly made up of a Lauric Acid, which is a medium-chain fatty acid. This type of fatty acid, gives a long, straight structure, which is more easily absorbed deep into the hair shaft rather than just coating the strands.

Coconut Oil can be used in curly hair for an array different reasons.

Here are a few:



Coconut Oil can be used as a deep treatment or even as an overnight hair mask.  Warmed to a liquid state, apply Coconut Oil and leave in hair for a minimum of 30 minutes or sleep with a cap and rinse in the morning.

PRO TIP: We've made it easy for you! Our Rizos Curls Deep Conditioner contains all the Coconut Oil goodness you need to deeply treat your parched curls.  Use Rizos Curls Deep Conditioner for your deep treatment hair mask and get all the Coconut Oil benefits plus sooooo much more!



Got Frizz? Coconut Oil is the answer! Using Coconut Oil and products that contain the super emollient will smooth the cuticle of your hair which will reduce breakage and minimize split ends. 

PRO TIP: If frizz is your enemy, then you will want to use products that contain moisturizing ingredients that will smooth unruly curls.  Our Rizos Curls Curl Defining Cream packs the power of Coconut Oil to create defined, frizz free curls, waves and coils.  Frizz has no chance!



Shiny, hydrated curls are the envy of all curlies! Who doesn't love their ringlets and spirals to sparkle and glimmer with the healthy glow of hydration?  Coconut Oil is amazing at sealing in the healthy hydration trapping the moisture to the hair shaft to keep it locked in. 



Textured hair is unfortunately familiar with tangles.  It's twist and turns make it almost impossible to keep curly hair free of snarled, jumbled strands. Its comes with the textured territory!  Detangling is light work with Coconut Oil, as the natural slip of this yummy, tropical smelling oil, keeps your tresses ready to slide right out of the most gnarly knots. The natural lubrication of Coconut Oil keeps hair from breaking and snagging while detangling.

Healthy hair comes from a healthy scalp. We can't preach it enough! Keeping your scalp healthy, flake and itch free is key to strong growth.  Coconut Oil is naturally antimicrobial, antiviral and antifungal.  It's literally a cure-all for skin conditions and should be used in scalp care to keep the skin on your head in optimal condition.  Using Coconut Oil  for a scalp massage in addition to products that contain this superfood is everything your scalp needs!

PRO TIP: Rizos Curls Hydrating Shampoo contains Coconut Oil to maximize the benefits to the scalp and ward off flakes, itch and inflamation.  Experience scalp massage euphoria by adding our Rizos Curls Pink Scalp Brush to your wash day and when your scalp is craving a massage to increase the blood flow for maximum relaxation.


Similar to the idea, "you are what you eat", the same theory applies for what you put on your skin and in your hair.  Quality, natural ingredients will always be the best bet when caring for your body, inside and out. PERIOD.
