SKINCARE FRIDAY: Coconut oil

July 27, 2018

TGIF beauties!

 

There's a few things I won't give up in this life and coconut oil is definitely in my top.

There's a lot of different point of views regarding coconut oil but I'm #TeamCoconutOil all the way. 

Once upon a time, I used to go all out with hair dye. The bleach was breaking my hair and literally fried my curl pattern so I stopped colouring it and was forced to be all about TLC. Thanks to coconut oil my texture is back and healthier than ever. Also, my skin became very sensitive and I would get major breakouts on my face and body. I would do the oil cleansing method and bounced right back to my usual smooth skin. Due to its unique fat composition and natural antioxidant, coconut oil is a great natural moisturizer. Since it's summertime, I highly suggest to use it home or in the evening  on your skin to avoid cooking under the sun. 

I still ask myself how is coconut oil so damn good for skin and hair? It's made miracles to mines and to the women in my family. It's truly unmatched. 

 

I could talk about it for hours so let's jump straight to the pros and cons
