Here are our top 10 reasons why coconut oil should always be kept in your bathroom:

  • Use it as hair treatment – it can be used as a pre-wash treatment and as a post-wash treatment as well. A study has shown that while sunflower oil and mineral oil do nothing on your hair, coconut oil prevents the protein loss for both damaged and undamaged hair. Hair is mainly made out of proteins, that feed it and maintain it healthy, at the same time. All you have to do is take half of tablespoon of coconut oil, apply it on your hair from the roots down, let it sit for 10 or 15 minutes and then clean and wash with shampoo.
  • Take control of your frizzy hair – if you have curly or damaged hair, but your heart won’t let you cut it, taking a few drops of coconut oil and rubbing your frizzy hair with it should help you get rid of this problem.
  • Leg shaving – you can apply some coconut oil before you shave your legs to make your skin less irritable and softer. You can also apply it after, to calm your skin and hydrate it.
  • Makeup remover – coconut oil can be used as a makeup remover, while nourishing and hydrating your skin.
  • Good for rashes and burns – take a few drops of coconut oil and gently rub it on your rash. It is also good for diaper rush and safe to use on your little ones.
  • Incredible with cuticles – taking some coconut oil and massage your nails as often as you want. It eliminates rough cuticles and also hydrates the nail itself.
  • Skin moisturizer – although at first it might have a greasy texture, once your skin absorbs it, everything will look shiny and feel soft. You can apply it on your face, starting with a small amount and carefully spreading it around. In fact, coconut oil makes your skin less greasy because it helps it detoxify by penetrating your pores and cleaning them.
  • Carrier oil – you can mix other essential oil of your choice with coconut oil and enjoy even more health benefits coming from both oils.
  • Remedy for toenail fungus – coconut oil is also known to have anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. You will have to apply a large amount of coconut oil 2 or 3 times per day on the affected nail. The process might take a while, so do not skip your remedy sessions.
  • Incredible for oil pulling – oil pulling is a process that helps you get rid of the inflammatory-causing bacteria in your mouth. Solid coconut oil can help you get rid of mouth toxins if you take two tablespoons of coconut oil in the morning, toss it around in your mouth for a few minutes and then spit it. It is full of bacteria, so do not swallow it. After that, you can brush your teeth.

As you can see, coconut oil is one of the best ingredients to have in your house. These are only a few of the health benefits it provides, but you can also use it for cooking to consume healthier meals.
