I've tried an argan oil hair mask for my hair and noticed that it relieves the flakiness of my scalp. The only thing is, the scent of the hair mask is a bit strong so my hair smells like the hair mask for about 3 days, even if I shampoo everyday.
I was given the opportunity to try the fractionated coconut oil by Pure Body Naturals and I was excited to try it on my scalp. I've researched about Coconut Oils and I learned that they're great for the hair and scalp.
Here is a quick product description of the Fractionated Coconut Oil by Pure Body Naturals:

· Fractionated Coconut Oil is a carrier that never goes rancid (stored cool out of direct sunlight)
· May help soothe skin inflammation due to its disinfectant and antioxidant properties.*
For a scalp treatment, I first washed and shampooed my hair. Then, I added a small amount of the Fractionated Coconut Oil on my palms and proceeded to massage it in my scalp for about 2 minutes. I then proceeded to apply some on my hair as well to see if it would help with my frizzy and puffy hair. I left it on my hair and scalp for about 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, I rinsed it off and noticed that my hair felt a bit heavy and oily to the touch the first time (lessening the coconut oil the next application helped with the oily and heavy feel) I tried my treatment. I placed a small amount of shampoo just to rinse out the excess oil on my hair.
The Coconut Oil proved to be an effective flaky scalp treatment for me because I noticed the flakiness of my scalp has lessened. My hair also dried up and looked more tamed and less puffy. I use this once every 3 days because using it consecutively made my hair produce more oil faster, making it look a bit oily.
I also used this on my elbows and knees, because they're the drier parts of my skin, and when used the right way (as in a super duper little amount only), the coconut oil relieves the dryness after a few days of using it.
The only problem I noticed was that the coconut oil flows freely and fast so it's a bit hard to control it with the dispenser included. A pump would be more suitable to control the amount of coconut oil I need in each application.
