I had grown tired of spending too much money on too many different kinds of lotions that never worked, too many kinds of deep conditioners that never conditioned deep enough, and I never really liked cooking with unhealthy vegetable oil. I found the answer to all of my prayers in one little jar of organic coconut oil!
Bathing Beauty: Drizzle a little coconut oil into your bath and your skin will be thanking you from head to toe.
Apres le Bain: Scoop the oil out of the jar and rub it in all over just like a lotion. It really helps during the dry winter months and makes you smell like summer.
Shiny Happy Hair: I have tried every deep conditioner i could get my hands on. I have done everything from put eggs to olive oil to disgusting mayo in my hair. Nothing worked… Until I tried coconut oil. Twice a week I put the oil on my ends (never on the scalp or you will be washing your hair forever to get it out) and wrap my head with a warm towel that I keep on for 30 minutes. I wash it out with my regular shampoo and BAM! I have beautiful shiny hair that continues to grow and grow!
