Is coconut oil good for curly hair?

What is bad for curly hair?
Parabens. Known as the curly hair kryptonite, parabens are often used in beauty products as preservatives.

Curly hair is easily frazzled and dehydrated, and using products with parabens will just make it worse.
Can curly hair go straight with age?
Throughout our lives, however, we experience biological changes to our hair texture. By diameter, our hair tends to become gradually thicker into adulthood, thinning again in middle and old age. These changes can impact curl pattern. The more perfectly round the follicle, the straighter the hair.
Is it better to not brush curly hair?
Curly hair breaks easily (I know, you get it — curly hair is dry and and brittle and you need to treat it nicely), so combing it when it’s not wet will lead to breakage and split ends. Your best bet for keeping the shape maintained is to use a wide-toothed comb while you condition in the shower.
