Crazy for coconut oil!!

Via Google

So I think I just might have found my next holy grail product. Yes it's coconut oil. It seems like this can be used for just about anything. I originally decided to get this for my hair as a conditioner because I heard it does amazing things for damaged hair or even just to help regrowth. Coconut oil is one of the few foods that can be classified as a “superfood.”Its unique combination of fatty acids can have profound positive effects on health.This includes fat loss, better brain function and various other amazing benefits.

So naturally before I wen tout and bought this  decided to do some research on just what this oil would do for my hair and I was not disappointed by what I found out. This oil has so many uses not just for vanity reason I guess you could say but for your health as well.

I'll go ahead and list some of the ways that coconut oil can be used.
  • Hair Mask-You can apply it all over your hair, put on a shower cap and leave it overnight or just a couple of hours.
  • body oil/face moisturizer- Use it as a lotion applying it all over your body and face. Makes your skin nice and soft plus you'll smell good :)
  • Lip Balm- Dry lips? No problem dab some of this on those dry lips.
  • Cuticle softer- Apply to your cuticles and dry hands as well.
  • Under eye cream- Yup apply some of this oil under your eyes, it helps wit dark circles as well.
  • Make-up Remover- this was another big one for me. Use it as a make-up remover. Simply put on your face directly or on a cloth and take your make-up off.
  • Anti-frizz- Use a small amount on your hair either dry or damp to avoid getting frizz.
  • Body scrub- DIY: Mix coconut oil with some sugar and ta-da!
