The Joys of Coconut Oil

If you haven’t heard it by now, then I’m here to tell you: coconut oil is great. In my book, this is one trend that should never end. Whether you’re using it for hair care, skin care or in your food, coconut oil is a great alternative to more mainstream products!

Hair: When I first discovered coconut oil, it was by watching many YouTube videos about haircare. I had never heard of putting anything in your hair other than grease or heat protectant so it surprised me to think that an oil used for cooking could actually be great for moisturizing your hair. It is great for moisturizing that helps your hair to grow and gives your hair an awesome shine while it’s at it! Not only that, but frizz will be eliminated and your hair will be sealed and protected from the sun at the blazing bleach, saltwater or chlorine.

Skin Care: Coconut oil is also great for moisturizing your skin! It prevents dryness and flaking and can even heal dry skin over time. Make sure you have unrefined/extra-virgin coconut oil so that it does not have added fragrance, flavors or coloring. It makes skin silky and has antibacterial/antimicrobial properties. Feel free to put it on before shaving your legs too, ladies!

Cooking: It has nutritional properties such as that helps to improve the digestive system. It helps in dealing with various bacteria, fungi, and parasites that can cause indigestion. It also helps in the absorption of other nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Besides the nutritional properties, organic virgin coconut oil has a marvelous coconut scent and gives a natural flavor that is great for making cookies or cake!

That’s just a few of the things that coconut oil is good for. A quick search of the benefits of coconut oil can tell you more, but I think you get the gist. I’ll vouch for got it any day- I use it and I love it!
