What I am loving – Coconut Oil

5 Dec

I’ve been resistant to jump on the coconut oil band wagon because last time I tried a  natural approach to my hair, this happened. It was a mild nightmare.

However, soooooo many beautiful ladies were talking about this and a co-worker brought me a sample a couple of months ago.  I liked it.  Eventually, I bought my own.

I bought this Spectrum Organic Coconut Oil from a grocery store for around $10.00. You can also get it on Amazon here.  Since then I have been using it daily as a body lotion.

It works very well on my dry skin. My legs actually feel silky smooth at bedtime!  That’s more than 16 hours of moisture.

I use it once a week or so on my hair.  Sometimes I apply it at night and leave it on while I sleep.  Sometimes I apply it for 30 minutes to an hour and wrap my head in plastic.  #twinpeaksreference

The only complaint I have is that it doesn’t moisturize my hands!  Sup with that???  After I apply it post shower, I have to apply a second hand lotion to my hands.  That seems stupid.

It’s in a solid form in the jar, white in color, very lightly scented of sweetness.  I wouldn’t call this a coconut scent.  The scent disappears when applied.  It turns to liquid pretty much on contact with skin.  It applies really easily.

Are you a fan of coconut oil?  What brand?
