For older people, it is also good to keep hair beautifully jet black.
If you have tried everything that seems to fail to grow your hair while keeping it healthy you should try Coconut Oil, it's not only a natural blessing from God, it's a miracle oil for maintaining our hair. According to livestrong.com, Coconut oil is a plant-based oil extracted from the kernel of the coconut with a high concentration of saturated fatty acids, lauric acid, capric acid and vitamins E and K. In its natural unprocessed state, coconut oil has a high moisture retaining capacity and does not breakdown or evaporate easily when it is applied to the hair and penetrates the hair shaft.
