Dominican Republic

Women in the Dominican Republic maintain their long, healthy hair by massaging their scalps with coconut oil to stimulate hair growth and keep their strands shiny. I use it on my hair about once a week, and believe me it really works! Try Organix’s Anti-Breakage Serum with Coconut Milk. This nourishing formula includes a blend of weightless coconut oil, silk and keratin proteins that works to promote longer hair, repair damage and strengthen weak tresses.
