Coconut Oil: A Dry Hair Miracle

If you have dry or heat-damaged hair then coconut oil is just the thing! For parched hair it's enough to do a once monthly hair mask to add moisture, breakage protection and encourage hair growth. Here's how: before heading off to bed pull out your coconut oil, a comb and a shower cap. Heat the oil until it's warm to the touch and begin to work it through your hair from the ends toward the roots. You can then use a comb to make sure it's evenly distributed.
Then pull your hair back, cover with a shower cap and wash out with your normal shampoo in the morning. What's more, coconut oil is good for your skin and also to cook with! Use it for a massage on dry skin after a shower, it's quickly absorbed and won't leave you feeling greasy. It can also be used to cook a variety of things and depending what type of coconut oil you choose it may or may not have a light coconut flavor. As for your health, coconut oil is antiviral, antimicrobial and full of antioxidants! It's useful for fighting the flu, HIV, Hepatitis C, and Herpes.
