Not only does it smell delicious, but natural coconut oil has endless benefits when it comes to your hair and skin. The nourishing nutrients hydrate and replenish, giving you some serious TLC.
Below are our top-three benefits for using coconut oil in our hair and skin products.
Swish swish – benefits for hair
Nourishes dry hair
The use of coconut oil in hair products is easy to understand as it’s one of the most nourishing, deep conditioners you can use, whether it’s in natural form or within a natural product.
We use coconut within our Colour Care Coconut & Shea Shampoo and Conditioner, which combines colour-enhancing Rooibos with vitamin-rich coconut, as the coconut helps to lock in moisture and prevent fading.
Tames the fizz
Maintaining the mane can sometimes be a nightmare, especially in the summer months. But using a natural coconut conditioner can help nourish and tame the frizz.
Top tip – whilst washing your hair, add extra coconut conditioner to those flyaway strands which need some additional TLC. Leave in for 5 minutes and wash away as normal. This will help to give it the love it needs without the risk of making the rest of your hair too oily.
Protects the scalp
Coconut oil has anti-bacterial properties and nutrients, which can help protect the scalp from things such as bad bacteria, viral infections, insect bites, lice and dandruff. By using a natural hair care shampoo & conditioner, you’re helping to rejuvenate and nourish hair, whilst also protecting it from everyday elements.
Benefits for your Skin
Pst…did you know it’s the largest organ in your body??
Works with skin
Instead of being a barrier, coconut oil works with the skin’s natural layer to create a solution which helps maintain healthy skin. Coconut oil contains Vitamin E, essential amino acids and lauric and caprylic acids which forms part of the skins barrier function, to maintain your skin’s natural goodness.
Can use from head to toe
Due to its natural goodness, you can use coconut-based products from your head to your feet.
Our Coconut & Monoi Body Care range includes a body scrub, body lotion and hand cream, as well as our specific Coconut & Shea Foot Cream to help target the tough skin on your feet. Each product has been created to help target areas of the skin which is dry and needs some nourishment. The coconut in each product is full of hydrating qualities to give skin the replenishment it needs.
Perfect for pouts
If you haven’t already sussed it out, coconut oil is the ultimate ingredient to help hydrate, nourish and replenish dry skin. This is also true for your lips. If you suffer with chapped or flaky lips, especially in the colder months, the moisturising nutrients in coconut oil helps to leave lips silky smooth. Our Coconut Oil Lip Balm is filled with natural goodness to give you the perfect pout made with no sulphates, parabens of petrochemicals.
