How coconut oil rocked my world and why you'll love it too!
Coconut Oil has become my obsession.
*Stands up* HI, my name is Double_Frick, and I'm a coconut oil-aholic. I began my affair with this oil for my scalp! I was having issues with dandruff and itchy scalp; the OTC shampoos didn't work and all the chemicals made me nervous not to mention being counterproductive. So in my search for a more natural alternative I stumbled on the seemingly boundless benefits of Coconut oil! Not Only is coconut oil a great cure for dandruff and itchy scalp, it can also repair damaged hair. A study done in India found that coconut oil actually prevents protein loss in hair and effectively penetrates the hair shaft for maximum moisture-power making hair strong and healthy, that’s pretty amazing for such a simple, affordable product. So to wrap up my dandruff issue (and maybe yours as well)
Coconut Oil Scalp Stimulator Treatment
1 cup coconut oil
1 tsp tea tree oil
4 drops cedarwood essential oil
2 drops ylang ylang
Even just warm coconut oil works great too. Then I massage the blend onto my scalp and leave it for at least 30 minutes, but I usually leave it for a few hours to really allow it to penetrate the hair and scalp. Then wash it really well and condition as usual. Done once a week your hair stylist will start telling you that you have the softest hair they've ever seen and even have other stylists come over to cop a feel of your luscious locks! This happens to me every time I go get my hair cut, it's fabulous!
Coconut oil is also a great moisturizer for ALL skin types, it will give you the balance your skin needs and it absorbs so it won't stay greasy! Coconut oil is anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. This paired with it being non-toxic it's an unstoppable force (in your medicine cabinet!) Coconut oil can actually improve skin elasticity and prevent signs of aging and sun damage. When I've had a late night and my eyes are evidence in the morning I pat a light layer of coconut oil where the bags are and within 10 minutes my eyes look noticeably fresher and brighter! Coconut oil is practically a miracle! I literally use it all over my body and my boyfriend swoons over my immaculate skin, it’s even improved my cellulite! Whenever I get out of the shower before I dry off I massage a generous amount of coconut oil all over and let it soak in. I never need lotion anymore, but when I do put coconut oil on first it seems to last longer and work better. Rub a good amount on your feet and kick them up while it soaks in, you'll thank me!

Get Ready For Rapid Results!
Coconut oil is simple to add to your daily diet and delicious as well. The first few days of beginning with your coconut oil you may notice some slight flu-like symptoms; this is called the die-off effect and just shows that the coconut oil is doing its job showing the nasty toxins in your body the door. Unfortunately that means the back-door for most; this will pass in a few days and is absolutely nothing to worry about. Things you can do to decrease this effect is to begin adding coconut oil to your diet slowly, starting with 1 tablespoon a day for a day or two and then 2 tablespoons a day and so on until you reach 3-4 tablespoons a day. Stay well hydrated and eat fresh vegetables and light, healthy foods. As soon as you get through this mild, transient stage of discomfort you will begin noticing the radiance that coconut oil gives abundantly!
