Reasons to keep coconut oil in your bathroom
Coconut oil not only provides mild and pleasant aroma and flavor, but it also provides numerous nutritional properties. Coconut oil is used for cooking, but it is also main ingredient in many homemade body care products.
Here are 9 reasons to keep coconut oil in your bathroom:
1. Best Skin Moisturizer
Coconut oil acts as natural moisturizer because it helps prevent sagging skin, reduces scares and stretch marks, makes your skin softy and silky and absorbs easily in the skin, even though is greasy.
Applying coconut oil on your face will make your skin less oily and will clean your pores from dirt. Apply small amount of coconut oil around the eyes and face.
2. Great for oil pulling
Oil pulling is one of the best traditional methods and ancient Ayuverdic dental technique for cleansing your mouth of bacteria.
Swish 2 tbsp. of coconut oil in your mouth right after you wake up in the morning before breakfast. Do not swallow the oil, but spit it out because it contains bacteria. Then you can brush your teeth with toothbrush, but it is preferable to use coconut oil.
3. Efficient Hair treatment
You can either use coconut oil before or after washing your hair. Coconut oil works positively on both damaged and undamaged hair, because hair is mostly made of protein, and this oil has proven as very efficient in providing your hair with protein and thus helps keeping its healthy look.
According to a study published in Cosmetic Science, sunflower oil and mineral oil haven’t proved as efficient as the coconut oil in reducing protein-loss.
Coconut oil is excellent for those who have greasy hair and works only if applying before washing your hair.
Take ½ tablespoon of coconut oil, this would be enough, but if you have very long hair you can add greater amount. Apply the oil on wet hair starting from the ends towards the roots. Allow it to work for 10-15 minutes. Wash your hair with your favorite shampoo afterwards.
