Natural Beauty: Coconut Oil

Recently i discovered my love for natural and organic oil’s again such as Argan and Moroccan oil, however I have never tried and tested coconut oil, seeing as there was such a HUGEEE hype on the product in the blogging world.

If someone were to tell me years ago that there was one single product that could contribute to my health and beauty regime, I would of never believed them. After discovering this little gem, my mind is completely changed. Coconut Oil is simply one of the best multi purpose organic natural products available.

Coconut Oil is an amazing hair mask. It leaves your hair with a silky texture feeling and lots of shine. I run this through my hair in a similar way of any normal store bought hair mask, just before I got to sleep, let it do it’s magic over night and wash it out in the morning once out the shower you’ll discover your best hair day yet.

It is one of the healthiest oil’s you could use when cooking and it can also be used as a baking ingredient as it is a saturated fat it can be used in place of butter.

Coconut oil is one of the best moisturisers I have ever used! It can be so much more effective than any average store bought lotions, the oil penetrates deep layers of the skin and actually helps strength under-layering tissues, it also helps remove any dead skin cells. It is a great face moisturiser, I like to use it to also remove my makeup at the end of the night, as the oil helps breakdown any makeup from water proof mascara to liquid lipstick. I just lather the oil between my fingers and working and massaging it into the skin until all the makeup looks like it is about to melt off my face then remove the excess with a damp muslin cloth.

Note: I dont reccommned heating the coconut oil in the microwave as it damages vital health properties within the product.

Drugstore Product of the Week!

Selling in boots stores world wide, priced at £2.99 (prices may vary)

Dry Shampoo is something is one of my holy grail items which gets used at least once a week! I’ve tried my fair share of them but have found that the best drugstore one is the Batiste Dry Shampoo. Having naturally very coarse thick hair I sadly cannot wash it every day as it would eventually fall out, this is when dry shampoo comes into play.

No one really likes the look of greasy roots, dry shampoo was made to give a washed clean look to the hair without making the hair feel thick or dirty.

Out of all of the dry shampoo’s I have tried so far this one is by far my favourite. A little spray of this to the roots of the hair goes a long way, it adds body and volume to the hair without the need for hairspray which is always a bonus. The one I have is the floral and flirty blush scent which smells INSANE!!! Batiste dry shampoo’s don’t leave a stiffness and crunchy feel to the hair which I find can happen a lot with some of the products on the market. I simply cannot live without dry shampoo, period.
