There will come a time in everyone’s life where you will succumb to peer pressure from either your friends, your favourite celebrities or even an advice from your hairstylist to add an edgy touch to your hair. Being asian means, having to bleach the hell out of your locks to achieve lustrous mermaid hair.

According to a study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Science, the findings clearly indicate the strong impact that coconut oil application has to hair as compared to application of both sunflower and mineral oils.
