    Coconut oil is an edible oil extracted from the kernel or meat of matured coconuts harvested from the coconut palm. It has various applications in food, medicine, and industry. Find out also what beauty benefits we can get from Coconut Oil.

     It might be time to put away all those expensive potions and lotions after trying coconut oil in your daily beauty regimen. It’s loaded with Vitamin E and fatty acids (such as lauric acid, myristic acid, capric acid and more) which are anti-fungal, anti-oxidizing and anti-bacterial, just the sort of stuff that our body happily responds to!

    It can be used as an all-over moisturizer (with excellent results, apply right after showering and throughout the day), but here are eight different ways to take advantage of its natural goodness and treat problem areas.

    I also added tips at the bottom of the page outlining what to look for when buying it and where to find it (locally and online).

    For Dry & Damaged Hair:

    • Simply work some into the damaged ends a half hour before showering.

    Glossy, Shiny Locks & Frizz Buster:

    • After washing, drying and styling, rub a small amount into the palms of your hands then lightly work it in.
    • If dealing with frizz, the above treatment will also help tame it.

    Exfoliating Facial Scrub:

    • Mix with an equal part of baking soda and massage into face. Rinse with warm water to remove baking soda residue.

    Dark Elbow Patches:

    • Rub in each morning and night until desired results are achieved.

    Dry Scalp:

    Each night before going to bed, follow these steps:

    • Part hair one section at a time and rub coconut oil into scalp. A light application is all that’s needed.
    • Repeat process for entire head then massage for a few minutes to really work it in. Comb out any tangles with a wide tooth comb then put on a shower cap.
    • Keep the treatment on overnight, cover pillow with a towel just in case the cap shifts in the middle of the night.
    • Wash with shampoo as usual in the morning.
    • Repeat daily until satisfied with the results (may take up to 5 weeks before the dryness is gone).
