Coconut oil is loved for its natural healing properties, and ability to penetrate into the hair and skin easier than most oils. If you love to stock up on coconut oil, you’ll be happy to learn that there is more to coconut oil than just making your hair stronger and shiny. These are some of the most fabulous ways you can use coconut oil:
1. Make-up remover
Rub coconut oil on a cotton pad, gently remove makeup and your face and eye area.
2. Cuticle oil
Apply coconut oil on damaged cuticles to moisturise and soften cuticles.
3. Hot oil treatment
Place two table spoons of coconut oil in a bowl, place the bowl in boiling water. Once it has melted, apply to your hair, cover and rinse it off after 30min.
4. Detangle hair
Apply coconut oil on damp hair, leave in for a few minutes before you begin detangling hair with your fingers or a wide-toothed comb.
5. Dandruff relief
Massage coconut oil onto your scalp, leave it on for 10 – 15 minutes, rinse off. Coconut oil will soothe an itchy scalp and remove dandruff.
6. Skin moisturiser
Apply coconut oil directly to your skin or mix coconut oil with your body moisturiser.
7. Body scrub
