Coconut oil is loved by celebrities and models alike for its hydrating properties that leave the skin, hair and body super soft, nourished and healthy.
Coconuts themselves are full of fatty acids, which help to repair dehydrated skin by trapping water in the skins cells so it can’t escape. This helps to stop dry patches in their tracks and prevent skin from cracking or becoming damaged. It works in a similar way to your hair too; by nourishing the hair fibres to prevent split ends and water loss.
There are a number of ways in which you can incorporate Coconut Oil into your beauty routine, and we have selected our favourite products to help you get your island fix…
For Your Hair
The benefits of Coconut Oil for your hair are endless. It is a deeply nourishing oil due to the fact that it contains a high amount of fatty acids that penetrate deep into the hair shaft. It is great to use an an intensive or overnight treatment so it can work for longer and give you super soft locks. Make sure you wash out thoroughly in the morning, as because it is an oil, it can be slightly heavy on the hair so use a purifying shampoo to make sure you rid the hair of all the product.
