  • Benefits of Coconut

    Hey there!
    Just wondering what is everyone's main reason to love coconut oil?

    I learned that it can be used for my hair since my mane has become very dry and brittle recently.

    I really need to try a shot of it and see how it makes me feel. I'm very excited to see what it does to my hair though =D

    Moisturizer, shaving cream, frying oil, anti-fungal treatment, stir-fry ingredient. Those are my main uses.

      It has a nice flavor. If you like coconut, anyway. When I cook eggs in it, they have a nice coconut fragrance that I can smell as I bring the fork to my mouth. If I stir-fry vegetables to go with Asian foods, the hint of coconut is nice. I bring coconut manna when I go backpacking and that stuff makes me feel warm inside. I have very long hair and just a pinky fingernail sized bit of coconut oil is more than enough. Too much more than that and my hair looks stringy. It's great on my skin.

        I've started using it for my face. I was using grapeseed oil as a moisturizer, and that works too, but coconut oil leaves me with smaller looking pores, for some reason.

          I gotta try these. I can kiss that can of Gillette; and Lotrimin goodbye, eh?
