Hello friends, happy Creative Mondays. Coconut oil is an healthier alternative to butter and oils but did you know you can do more things than cook with it? You can cook with it, eat it, wear it and also use it for health and beauty. It is also great to condition your hair with it.
If you have dry lips you can pop a bit on them to soften them up a little. It feels nice on your lips too. Better than Vaseline! Also a good idea to use in Winter to save lips from getting dry. I hate getting chapped lips!! When a piece of skin pulls on your lips so you try to bit it off, and it pulls even more: OUCH!!
3.) Conditioning Your Hair And Scalp:
Are coconut oil good for hair? Pop a few teaspoons in your hand let it melt and rub it into the roots of your hair. This helps condition your hair. Do you have a dry scalp? It works great for this too.
Simply place a few teaspoons in your hands, it melts in seconds and then rubs it into your scalp. Leave for a little while then wash out. My Daughter had a dry scalp a few years ago and this works great!! First time too.
The next day you may want to wash your hair again as it will be slightly greasy but no worries as it has done your scalp the world of good. You could also try using it before shampooing and it might not come out greasy as it did when we tried it as we used it more like conditioner.
Adding some moisture to your skin if you have dry skin. Again works great and softens up your skin nicely. A good way to remove some stubborn make up marks off your skin is to add a little to some tissue paper.
It feels so nice and smooth. It also melts in your hands in seconds.
I have ran out of some at the minute and I have a a bit of dry skin on the side of my head so I am off now to buy some more!!
