The business of beauty is multi-million dollar one. There is always a new, fantastic product available market claiming to be the latest in beauty aids. People spend thousands of dollars each year on expensive products.
But a lot of those products all contain the same basic formula, with a few added ingredients to make them a little different. Ultimately, they all do the same thing.
Here we will focus on all the ways you can use coconut oil to do the same things your expensive products do, for a fraction of the price.
Spending a lot of money on hair products can end now when you use coconut oil instead.
Tame Frizzy Hair
If you have big curly, wavy and frizzy hair, coconut oil can help tame it. Just a bit of oil rubbed into your ends will leave your hair looking smooth calm. You can use straight oil or look for products that contain coconut oil.
Add Some Shine
Dab a tiny amount of coconut oil onto your ends of your hair to add a little shine to your hair. Just use a little bit, as too much will make your hair appear greasy. Do the ends and outsides of the hair, don’t rub it in.
Rub a small amount together in your hands and then add it to your hair, brush it in and then wrap it up in a bun. Cover your hair or the pillow to stop it from ruining your pillow cover and then wash your hair normally in the morning.
What better way to get all your skin products in one jar!
As a Cleanser
Coconut oil is a natural antibacterial, antifungal, and a moisturizer. Use it like you would any other cleansing lotion or cream.
Gently rub the oil in circular motions on your face and neck, then rinse off.
As a Makeup Remover
Just put the coconut oil on a cotton ball or cloth as you would your regular makeup remover and it works like a charm. It will remove waterproof mascara, and won’t irritate your eyes. Just rinse as usual and it leaves your skin feeling soft. They even make coconut oil pills that can be punctured so that you can squeeze out just what you need and toss the rest of the pill. Makes it super easy to use on the go or while traveling.
