My favorite product by @sheamoisture love coconut oil and all of the benefits that come along with it. You can use it for just about anything. Below are a few things that you can use coconut oil for:
1. Makeup Remover. Even the most resistant waterproof mascara doesn’t stand a chance against coconut oil. Apply it directly to the face as an oil cleanser, or let it sit on your skin with a cotton pad. Makeup will melt away.
2. Breath Freshener. Coconut oil has antifungal and antibacterial properties. Gargling for 20 minutes with a spoonful of oil (a.k.a. oil pulling) can help clear up germs in the mouth, leading to fresher breath, whiter teeth, and healthier gums.
3. Lice Remedy. Start this all-natural lice treatment with a rinse of apple cider vinegar. Once the vinegar has dried, apply coconut oil to the entire head and let it sit for 12 to 24 hours. Brush through hair with a fine comb, then shampoo.
4. Body Lotion. If you’re a DIY mixologist, then coconut oil is a vanity essential. You can use this versatile oil as the base to make your own body moisturizer.
5. Cuticle Oil. Got cracked cuticles? Remedy peeling skin with a coconut oil balm right at the base of nails. It can also help your manicure last longer.
6. Makeup-Brush Cleaner. Cleaning your makeup brushes should be a monthly ritual. You can use a DIY cleanser that’s two parts antibacterial soap and one part coconut oil.
7. Lip Balm. Coconut oil is the ideal remedy for chapped lips especially because it’s semisolid at room temperature. Pack a bit in a miniature jar and smooth over lips throughout the day.
8. Stretch-Mark Cream. Expectant moms should keep a jar of coconut oil nearby to help ward off stretch marks, but anyone can use this as a topical treatment for scars. While the oil won’t fade any marks, it can help prevent dark spots and blisters from forming.
9. Undereye Cream.Don’t want to spend the extra money on eye cream? Use a dab of coconut oil on undereye bags and fine lines. It’s light enough for the most delicate skin on your face.
10. Body Scrub. Mix half a cup of coconut oil with a handful of coarse salt or sugar to create an exfoliator. The moisturizing oil will last long after the grains have melted away.
11. Frizz Tamer. Flyaways begone with this smoothing treatment. Just rub a dime-size amount in your hands and smooth from midshaft to ends for frizz-free style that’s high on shine.
12. Massage Oil. Warm coconut oil in the microwave and add a few drops of an essential oil, like lavender or peppermint, for a soothing massage mix.
13. Whitening Toothpaste. Run out of toothpaste? Grab the closest jar of coconut oil and add baking soda for a quick fix. Everyone will wonder how you got such a white smile.
14. Shaving Cream. Who said shaving cream has to lather? Use this balm as a base to get a closer shave that leaves legs smooth instead of dried out. You can also use it alone or with other ingredients in this DIY shave-cream recipe.
15. Dandruff Treatment. Dandruff and dry scalp go hand in hand. So send moisture right to the roots with a nightly coconut oil treatment. Just apply lightly to roots and massage in, which will also stimulate hair growth.
16. Body Oil. Why purchase a separate body oil when you can keep coconut oil near the bath? Just slather it on wet skin after the shower, then pat dry. You’ll smell like a beach vacation all day. Plus, it has a natural SPF 4.
17. Itch Relief. Burns, bug bites, and bruises can all be soothed with a topical balm of coconut oil.
18. Deep Conditioner. You can use hot coconut oil as a preshampoo treatment to soothe dry hair before you shampoo and condition. Leave in for at least an hour for an allover moisturizing treatment.
19. Night Cream. Apply coconut oil at night for maximum moisturizing benefits. The antioxidants are great for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles while you sleep.
20. Leave-in Conditioner. Hydrate dry hair by using coconut oil as a leave-in conditioner. Apply a small amount to wet strands to seal in moisture.
Hey fellow naturals! My hair is healthy, growing, and I’m loving it! I wanted to share my top 10 tips for healthy hair with you guys. I hope these tips help you on your journey to healthy hair. 😀
1. Moisturizing is key! Dry hair breaks off. Moisture keeps your hair elastic and strong. Moisturize your hair often with water based moisturizers, leave in conditioners, and essential oils.
2. Deep condition at least once a week! This ties in with number one. Deep conditioning your hair is an intensive way to replenish vital moisture.
3. Shampoo less. I shampoo once a week with a sulfates free shampoo, but some naturals only shampoo every 2 weeks or once a month. Do whatever works for you. Shampooing your hair too often can result in dry, weak hair and scalp. Co-washing (washing hair with conditioner) is a more gentle and moisturizing alternative.
4. Sleep on a satin/silk pillowcase, or wear a satin bonnet/scarf to bed. Cotton pillowcases cause friction between your head and the pillow which can lead to breakage and frizzy hair.
5. Wear protective styles. I personally don’t wear weaves, extensions, braids, or wigs, but for many naturals those are all great ways to limit manipulation of your hair. Twist outs, braid outs, and buns are also a great way to limit manipulation and styling of your hair. The point is to avoid messing with your hair as much as possible. Over styling can lead to breakage.
6. Limit heat styling. I don’t use blow dryers or curling irons, and I make sure I wait 1-3 months in between using a flat iron on my hair. I straighten my hair maybe 4-5 times a year. Heat styling is not good for your hair when done too often. It leads to dryness, breakage, and a messed up curl pattern. When you do use heat tools, use a heat protection spray and try to have the heat setting as low as possible.
7. Drink lots of water, eat as healthy as possible, exercise regularly, get 8-10 hours of sleep every night, and take vitamins. Healthy hair has more to do with what you put INTO your body that what you apply to the outside. Some good vitamins to promote healthy hair growth are biotin, vitamins C, zinc, iron, niacin, and MSM. Do some research to see what might be best for you.
8. Stop getting perms and relaxers. Anything that can straighten your hair on a chemical level is obviously unhealthy for your hair.
9. Massage your scalp regularly. Doing this with an essential oil like olive, coconut, or jojoba oil is a great way to increase blood flow to the scalp and increase circulation, which in turn may lead to faster growing hair.
10. Most importantly, be patient! African textured hair typically grows the slowest, at a rate of less than 0.9 cm a month. I know that sounds frustrating, but with a healthy diet and a good hair routine, you can see faster growth. Your hair is not going to grow an inch in a week, or probably even in a month. Focus on leading a healthy lifestyle and taking care of your hair, and before you know it, you’ll have the long, strong hair you’ve always wanted!
