Many prefer coconut oil in their food, while some say a big no to it. Today, we give you tips and tricks which you can follow using coconut oil, for a healthy and beautiful life.
Condition your hair: Coconut oil is known to be filled with protein which will make your hair stay gorgeous and nourished when applied. What it does is this: it protects your hair from direct contact with water which will make your hair stay as good as new.
Shave with coconut oil: Use a cloth to remove most of the water from your legs and hands. Coat your legs or hands with coconut oil - 1 drop of oil for one leg is enough to do the job. Don't forget to cleanse your razor as the oil can cause the blades to clog.
Coconut oil toothpaste: Do away with the chemical toothpastes and make your own natural toothpaste with this simple mix. Mix a few drops of coconut oil with baking soda to make it into a paste. You can also add a few essential oils if you wish.
Treat your feet: This is a very simple overnight remedy you should use to cure cracked heels. Apply a few drops of coconut oil on the cracked area and put on your socks. The oil will work its magic, leaving your feet soft and saturated.
Expel gum from hair: If you ever have naughty kids or friends around who think it's a fun idea to stick gum in your hair, worry no more. While shaving your hair off may seem like the only solution, apply coconut oil around the area. This will make your hair smooth and the gum will slip out in no time.
