Health benefits of coconut oil

There are many health benefits of coconut oil.  Here are some of the natural beauty benefits of coconut oil for your hair, skin, and face.
Coconut oil is an antibacterial and anti-fungal, it is also a great moisturiser. It can penetrate hair better than other oils.

Hair and coconut oil

Deep conditioner:

Coconut oil is a great moisturiser and penetrates the hair well.  This is the reason why many conditioners contain coconut oil. Apply a small blob to your hair, comb it through, and then pile it into a loose bun. Make sure you place a soft towel over your pillow or sleep in a shower cap to prevent your pillow getting dirty. In the morning, shampoo and condition as usual.

Tame frizz:

Coconut oil can be good for taming your frizz.  Use your fingers to gently massage a small amount of oil into your hair then brush and style as usual.

Add shine:

Smooth a tiny amount of organic coconut oil onto your ends of your hair to add a little shine if you have dark hair. Remember, only a small amount on your hair, any more and your hair might appear greasy.

Minimise dandruff:

One of the most common causes of dandruff is a dry scalp. Before you spend money on special anti-dandruff shampoo, you can try minimizing the problem with an ultra-moisturizing coconut oil treatment. You can massage the coconut oil into your scalp. If you have any leftover oil, you can use it to coat the rest of your hair. Let the oil sit on your scalp for 30 minutes and then wash it out with shampoo.

Face and coconut oil

Coconut oil is naturally antibacterial, anti-fungal, and moisturiser. Research shows that it is also great for atopic dermatitis.  As a facial moisturiser, you can rub the oil in circular motions all over your face and neck.
