Organic coconut oil is present in almost every home and is used in only way that is for hair. However, it is magical oil and a holy-grail product for both hair and skin. You can add it to your DIY recipes and apply it raw as well and benefit greatly from it.
Organic Coconut Oil for Hair and Skin
The oil has been used in cosmetics for ages but I believe that using it organically will benefit your skin more and those with sensitive skin must make use of this natural oil. Here are some of the amazing benefits of this oil after reading which you will not resist using it:
1. Anti-Aging Benefits
The oil contains fatty acids and moisturizing ability that help keep the skin wrinkle-free and firm. Apply the oil after warming it for 15 seconds in a microwave. Massage your skin gently for about five minutes and you will see how it reverses the aging signs and prevents them in the long run. Plus, it is 100 percent natural alternative for high-end anti-aging products that are infused with damaging chemicals and dyes.
2. Hair Softener
Dry and dead hair is like a nightmare. Using conditioners help softening them but leaves the hair weak and they start falling. Therefore, you should rather go for something organic when it comes to softening your hair. The best coconut oil for hair repair is organic and unrefined. It is filled with fat that locks moisture into the roots till the shaft of the hair and leaves them shiny and soft like never before.
3. Safe and Natural Moisturizer
Winters are here and we all know how the skin gets stubbornly dry and dead. It starts to itch and bleed to if not treated with proper moisturizer for your skin. While the moisturizers available in the market seem effective, their results do not last long enough. On the other hand, organic coconut oil has the capability to lock the moisture into the skin and leave it soft and supple permanently if you use it regularly.
4. Say Goodbye to Corns
If you have an issue of corns and hardened skin on hands and feet, organic coconut oil can solve it for you. All you need to do is mix 10 drops of organic coconut oil with 5 drops of argan oil and 5 drops of olive oil. Warm up the mixture in the microwave for 15 seconds. Massage your hands and feet properly for about 5 to 10 minutes before going to bed. Then, cover them up with warm gloves and socks. Sleep with the covers on and you will find your skin much softer in the morning. Do it regularly for best results.
5. No More Hair Fall
Coconut oil is great for hair and this fact is known universally. However, applying warm coconut oil to the roots after you take a shower every time, can reduce the hair-fall greatly. You can also use the oil as a hair shiner by diluting it in water. Take a spray bottle and fill it half with water. Add 10 drops of organic coconut oil and argan oil to it. Spray it on to your wet hair after taking the shower.
