Beneficial effects of coconut oil on prevention of combing damage on different types of hair have been established by protein loss and water retention measurements. In vivo, salon-based, half-head tests confirm these beneficial effects. Beneficial effects were also observed on chemically (bleached) and thermally (treated with boiling water) damaged hair. In addition to providing lubricating film, it is hypothesized that coconut oil used as a prewash penetrates endocuticular material in the… 
Effect of mineral oil, sunflower oil, and coconut oil on prevention of hair damage.
Among three oils, coconut oil was the only oil found to reduce the protein loss remarkably for both undamaged and damaged hair when used as a pre-wash and post-wash grooming product.
Investigation of penetration abilities of various oils into human hair fibers.
The agreement between the two methods supports the concept that the reduction in capillary adhesion between hair fibers is most likely due to thinning of oil films by absorption of oil into the hair.
Brazilian oils and butters: the effect of different fatty acid chain composition on human hair physiochemical properties.
In general, hair treated with oils showed a significant gloss increase and a decrease for split end formation and combing analysis and gloss measurements and the fatty acid composition of the oils and butters tested showed an effect on the physicochemical properties of hair.
Formulation and Evaluation of Hair Shampoo Containing Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) Oil and Virgin Coconut (Cocos nucifera) Oil
Tea Tree oil (TTO) contains beneficial properties such as antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiviral and anti-fungal. Whereas, the medium chain fatty acids in Virgin Coconut oil (VCO) able to protect
Alternative Protocol for Hair Damage Assessment and Comparison of Hair Care Treatments
A new quantification protocol for determining the change in hair properties on weathering and formulate hair damage protection metric to compare different hair care products is proposed to quantify damage control power of various products.
Single hair fiber assessment techniques to discriminate between mineral oil and coconut oil effect on hair physical properties
To utilize a matrix of single‐fiber hair testing methodologies to mechanistically understand the impact of common oiling treatments—coconut oil and mineral oil—on hair strands. Further, the effect of
Anti-Breakage efficacy evaluation of hair care products using the hair breakage regression model
An index Hair Breakage Number (HBN) is formulated using the predicted consumer hair breakage counts to discriminate the anti-breakage potential of various hair care product formats and regimens.

Limited but consistent evidence supports the topical use for prevention and treatment of atopic dermatitis, as well as in “oil pulling” for prevention of dental caries and coconut oil products may also be useful in preventing hair damage due to protein loss during grooming processes and ultraviolet (UV) exposure.
Labile proteins accumulated in damaged hair upon permanent waving and bleaching treatments.
It is demonstrated that the amount of soluble proteins internally formed in permed and bleached hair, labile proteins, is a useful index for hair damage assessment and suggests that a portion of the stable proteins in normal hair was transformed intolabile proteins upon permanent waving and bleaching treatments.


Combability Measurements on Human Hair
The method involves the continuous recording of the forces, which oppose the motion of a comb through a swatch of hair, which produces graphs showing the forces opposing (or generated by) combing as a function of the position of the comb along the length of the swatch.
