MY FAVORITE WAYS TO USE COCONUT OIL
Despite recent debates regarding the safety and health benefits of coconut oil, it will still remain as a staple product in my home. Coconut oil is a well-known energy booster, has anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory properties, can increase your metabolism and works to reduce body fat. Not only is it one of the oils that I use for baking and high heat cooking, but it’s also a regular part of my beauty routine.
My Favorite Ways To Use Coconut Oil
Pre-poo: I saturate my hair with coconut oil and finger detangle before I shampoo. This really helps to prevent breakage on wash day.
Post-shower: Apply to damp skin before applying lotion for extra moisture.
Heat protectant: Some say that this is debatable, but I always apply a little to my hair before blow drying to prevent heat damage. So far, so good!
Oil pulling: Before you brush your teeth, swish a squeeze of coconut oil around in your mouth for 15-20 minutes to remove toxins, freshen breath, and whiten teeth. Spit it out in the toilet and flush. Never spit this out in the sink as it can clog your drain.
Cuticle Oil: Massage your nails with coconut oil every night for longer, stronger nails.
