Coconut oil is also great for hair care
As a hair mask: this use of coconut oil will be suitable for those who have long, thick but brittle hair or thin hair that tends to get greasy. Apply an appropriate amount of pre-warmed coconut oil on your hands and then massage the product into your strands. Leave this natural mask on all night and wash your hair normally in the morning.
As an anti-dandruff treatment: coconut oil is a fungicide, which makes it a great product to fight dandruff. Just apply it to your scalp and leave it on for an hour. Then wash your hair normally. Repeat this procedure one to four times a month.
For the body
How to use coconut oil for the body? Check below.
Beautifying moisturizer for summer: the moisturizing properties of coconut oil naturally benefit the whole body. In summer, your skin needs hydration and coconut oil will give it that.
As a shaving cream: if you plan to shave, apply a small amount of coconut oil to each leg at the end of your bath and massage the product from your knees to your ankles. Under the heat, the product will quickly become oily, so the razor will glide very well and you will avoid cuts.
Moisturize for nail cuticles: you can have the most beautiful manicure, but if you don’t take care of your cuticles, your nails won’t be perfect. Apply a small amount of coconut oil on and around your nails once or twice a day to moisturize them. However, if you work at a computer, be careful. Your fingers may be a little slippery for a while. Therefore, it’s best to apply the oil in the evening, after you get home and before going to bed.
Hand cream: coconut oil is great for moisturizing not only the cuticles around your nails. It can make your hands smoother, healthier and more beautiful. Place a drop or two of coconut oil in your hands and massage well. You can also use it on your feet.
As a scrub: mix 100 grams of coconut oil with 200 grams of brown sugar (and possibly 100 grams of almond pulp). Add a few drops of essential oils and you’re done! You can create a natural scrub this way
