Coconut Oil could possibly be the best all-purpose product around for your skin and your hair! We’ve said time and time again that your kitchen is full of fabulous fixes for natural health and natural beauty. And coconut oil is tops on the list! Coconut oil is anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial, and also anti-fungal so it will help clear up acne and prevent further blemishes
It fights against those dreaded free radicals caused by aging, pollution, smoke, sun and radiation and environmental pollution. Coconut oil helps to keep the skin from developing age-related liver spots, and other skin discolorations that come with aging and over exposure to sunlight. Coconut oil helps to keep the connective tissues supple and strong to prevent your skin from wrinkling and sagging. It can even help the skin to restore damaged or diseased skin. The coconut oil is absorbed into the cells of the connective tissue and into the skin and limits the damage that excessive exposure to the sun can cause. This king of oils has also been studied and shown to aid in stress relief, maintaining cholesterol levels, heart diseases, weight loss, increased immunity, high blood pressure, dental care, bone strength, and assist in better digestion and metabolism.
And if that’s not enough to convince you to run out and buy some coconut oil (organic is best!), then how about coconut oil for your skin (I slather it all over my face morning and night!) and for your hair. To make a nourishing, enriching and moisturizing homemade hair mask that will also help to repair split ends, all you need are two ingredients – Coconut Oil and Water!
Wet your hair. Put a small amount of coconut oil into your hand and rub your hands together. Run your fingers through your hair, making sure to cover everything from the scalp to the roots with the coconut oil. Cover your head with a plastic bag or a shower cap and secure it with a clip. Wrap your whole head with a towel and sit back and relax. Put your feet up. Close your eyes and think wonderful thoughts!
Keep the coconut oil mask on for about 15 minutes and then rinse it out with warm water. Your hair will be lustrous, shiny, and fabulous!
