Benefits of Coconut Oil

Coconut oil has been a staple in my natural hair regimen since I became natural. My hair loves the sheen, moisture and "fly-vibes" it gives it! It was only after I went natural when I educated myself on the benefits of Coconut oil- and it goes far beyond hair. Coconut oil it great for a variety of things whether it's used as a household item, a lotion, cooking, and more! Here are 5 different uses for coconut oil.

- Great skin moisturizer
- inexpensive and a little goes a long way
- great for hair and beauty purposes
- great for weight loss
- 100% NATURAL!


1. Skin Moisturizer- because Coconut Oil is equipped with fatty acids, it is easily absorbed and can help repair connective tissues in our skin. It has extremely great results and will have your skin feeling soft in no time! 

2. Hair- also because of the fatty acids in coconut oil, it has the ability to coat your hair strands and protect it whilst adding moisture. My hair has had excellent results from constant coconut oil use. I definitely recommend it! Many have claimed to get great results using coconut oil as apart of the pre-poo method. (leaving an oil in your hair for added moisture before shampooing) I've yet to try it, but I expect nothing but the great results stated! 

3. Mani's & Pedi's- Because coconut oil is great for the skin, it is often used as a cuticle oil for added moisture and gorgeous nail beds. I myself have used coconut oil as a cuticle oil and had beautiful results once again. If you haven't been able to tell yet....coconut oil is my favourite oil. :)

4. Cooking- Although many believe that coconut oil is unhealthy because it has fatty acids, it is actually quite beneficial in weight loss and boosts energy. Coconut oil helps you feel more full during the day, and is easy to absorb by the body. Try adding coconut oil to your morning smoothie and see the difference! 

5. Homemade Gifts- If you have no clue what to give as a gift, homemade items that include coconut oil are a great option. Body scrubs, lip butters, conditioners, fragrances- the list goes on and on!
