If you are one of those people whose mother continually bugs them to use coconut oil on hair and skin every day, welcome to the club. A day doesn’t pass when most of us don’t get to hear the long list of benefits of the coconut oil. But, believe me, they are definitely true, so heck out the amazing results.
Here are the five amazing benefits of coconut oil for hair and skin:
Be it dry or oily skin, a few drops of coconut oil softens the skin. Most of the lotions and moisturizers that we use these days contain coconut oil, so why not use the original and natural product on our face? This oil is a great softener and maintains the shine of the skin.
Apart from moisturizing and hydrating, it also heals cracked feet and infuses life into them. Moreover, it is a great mask for skin, because it acts as an exfoliating agent as well. The regular use of coconut oil will clear out dead skin, block the pores and clean the dirt off it.
Strengthens The Hair:
There are fatty acids in coconut oil that have the ability to fill in the gaps in damaged hair strands. It simply implies that the use of this oil promotes hair growth, repairs the dull & damaged hair and finally strengthens your once dead looking mane.
Studies show that the continuous use of coconut oil for 16 weeks can stop the hair breakage due to environmental damage. So, what better to use these days for protecting your excessively damaged and rapidly thinning hair than coconut oil?
Among the list of other benefits that it has, using coconut oil daily is a remedy for dry and cracked lips. It is an ideal alternative for all the chemical gels and glosses. Using it on your lips not only soothes the skin, but it helps them appear shinier than ever.
You wouldn’t have to wait for weeks for the oil to do its wonder. The effects of coconut oil are quick, with a lot of other additional benefits.
Deep Cleans The Scalp:
Coconut oil moisturizes the scalp, gets rid of dandruff and puts an end to visible flakes. Its antibacterial properties help fight against irritants that infect your hair health. This oil protects the overgrowth of hair harming bacteria.
With the regular use of coconut oil, bacteria will likely be attracted to your scalp and hair growth will flourish. You are also able to immune yourself from scalp infections.
One of the greatest benefits of using coconut oil is that it reverses the aging process. No, it won’t make you Cleopatra or any other superfluous beauty, but it slows down the signs of aging by a great margin.
If you include a little of coconut oil into Aloe Vera gel and cool them off, the cream sort of paste will help your skin a lot. It not only removes wrinkles but ends acne and gets rid of acne marks. Win, win against all the problems!
