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?
