In the past few years coconut oil has really become a trending item in a lot of households. It’s easy to cook with and it has a ton of health benefits but did you know that it also has some surprising uses in your beauty routine as well?

Hair Mask

I personally use coconut oil for this reason. Lather it through your dry hair and leave it on for a few hours (put it on before dinner and wash it out before bed). Your hair will absorb a lot of nutrient-rich moisture from the oil leaving it shiny and smooth. Make sure you have a towel around your neck however because the oil will probably drip. This works really well if your hair is color treated as that makes the hair extra dry, so a bit of added moisture definitely won’t hurt.
