I’ve got fairly long hair, and am always on the hunt for fun new Hair and Makeup Tips and Tricks!



The ends of my hair can get a little dry and frizzy though, so I was SO excited when I saw Bethany Hamilton mention how well coconut oil has worked to condition her hair!

Why not, I thought… why not?!?  So I gave it a try, and here’s what works best for me…

Before you head to bed… simply apply just a dab, or a smidge, or whatever you’d like to call it on your fingers… then rub it in to the ends of your hair when your hair is dry.  A little bit goes a LONG way. Think of it as a leave-in overnight conditioner, then you can wash it out the next day.  {use it as often as you’d like to, or whenever you notice your hair needs some added oil}

Now, you won’t need to apply coconut oil to your roots, etc ~ you’ll just end up with a greasy look.  Just the last few inches or ends of your hair will do!  I love how well it works for my hair… give it a try and hopefully it will work well for yours, too!

    I have recently discovered coconut oil and I love it! My favorite use is for shaving my legs. I rub it on and my legs get a nice close shave and my skin is protected from nicks. I also make a sugar scrub to use in the shower.

    I tried it on my baby’s bad eczema after all the prescription creams and ointments failed to do anything for him. It was the best thing ever! It cleared up within a few days and now I use it as a lotion on him after his bath (when he used to get the worst flare ups) and for the last 2 months or so he hasn’t had a single patch anywhere. I also use it on my dry hands and cuticles and on the ends of my hair. It’s fabulous stuff and a jar of it lasts forever!

    I’ve used coconut oil just on the tips of my hair , all of my hair & even my roots .
    All of my tries were successful .
    Really like to saturate my hair from roots to ends. I do this at nite , I sleep on a designated pillow . I pin my hair on top of my head it works for me.
    Next morning doesn’t matter what shampoo ( I have suave with Maraccan oil , bob shampoo , color treated shampoo ) I use it. I rinse my hair first then shampoo my hair no conditioner . Then after I don’t squeeze my hair I tap it to get most of the liquid out. Very important not to over work your hair with towel or twisting it.
    After words I spray a melelueca spray from bumble and bumble & a rosemary spray also from the same company .
    My personal opinion is it works for me and I color my hair with a non amonia color .

    I use it to cleanse my face. I take a small amount, the size of a dime, and rub it between my hands to liquefy it. I gently rub it all over my face. I run a washcloth under very hot water and hold it over my face to steam it for a few minutes. Then I use the washcloth to gently wipe it off of my face. Lastly rinse with cool water. The coconut oil leaves your face so soft but not greasy. I never need to use moisturizer any more. If my face ever feels dry I rub a minuscule amount of coconut oil over my face before I put on my make up. Oil removes oil so my skin never feels greasy and my skin tone has improved greatly. My son tried this and his acne got better too. If I feel the need for a scrub I just mix in a little baking soda and cleanse the same way.
