Coconut Oil

For months I've been reading up on the many benefits of using coconut oil in your beauty regimen. I have frizzy hair and over the years I've bought dozens of hair products that left me very disappointed. Not only did they not work but I was furious at having to shell out a pretty penny for them. Talk about a bummer.

Well today, I found "the" fix. Coconut oil that is. It was by accident that I purchased it even though I've been wanting to do so for quite a while. I'm a cheapskate and not ashamed to admit it. After being burned by the many so called miracle products I was not ready to spend another small fortune. Luckily, I spotted this baby at Aldi! For $4.99 I just couldn't let this pass up. So tonight I'm going to give my tresses, and my daughter's too, a moisturizing mask.

The process is extremely simple. Melt a couple of tbsp of oil and apply it to your hair from roots to tips. If your hair is greasy, just apply to the lower part of your hair . If your hair is long, twist into a tight bun and "seal" your hair with a shower cap. Leave it on overnight or at least for a few hours then shower as usual. This treatment should be done once or twice a week.

Everyone will avoid you when you have coconut oil in your hair. The scent is overpowering.

I didn't find the scent overpowering. I actually like it lol. But yes, you definitely should be at home while doing this treatment.

My daughter also has frizzy hair and is often in despair. I will also try coconut oil. Olive oil did not help much.

I love the scent of coconut, and I've always favored coconut-scented shampoos and lotions. I have frizzy hair, too. Please do a review post to let us know how it worked.

Yes, let everyone know how things turned out. We especially enjoy cooking our popcorn in coconut oil. We then toss it with nutritional yeast and just a little (or so my wife thinks!) salt. She's also begun to experiment with it in other ways.

I have been reading a lot about coconut oil too after meeting someone at a funeral of all places who told me about the benefits. I have been taking coconut oil tablets for a while now and I have to say that I definitely do have more energy than I did before. Its supposed to be good for weight loss as well but I haven't lost any weight that I have noticed as yet. I also recently switched to a coconut oil shampoo because I also have quite dry hair, but I haven't used it yet because I still have some of the old stuff I was using left and wont throw it out just because I want to try something new.

My hair also frizzy. I apply natural coconut oil to my hair half day and wash it with shampoo and conditioner.
I just avoid going out from the house when using it.

Yeah it's a good oil, it would be also great to drink the coconut water, it's very beneficial :)
