I'm not by any means a doctor or natural healer but it's been said that organic unrefined coconut oil is good for moisturizing the hair and scalp, healthy scalp, healthy hair. Some studies have said also introducing a little bit of it into your diet can help regulate blood sugar and helping with insulin. Don't stop using anything your doctor has told you to take or do, but do try giving coconut oil a shot in addition to your physicians instructions. I personally use coconut oil for a hair moisturizer, pre face wash moisturizer, pre shampoo moisturizer, and as a body moisturizer. you might just even need to do protein treatments for your hair to make it stronger. and please do not rip through your hair. add a little oil all over and then lightly release the knots by separating your curls.
