♥ Benefits of Coldpressed Coconut Oil

BENEFITS OF COLD PRESSED COCONUT OILIf you don't like the smell of Coconut or Coconut Oil, do not keep reading as I will keep going on about it. I have consistently been using Coconut Oil for scalp massages for quite a while now. Being such a bargain hunter I've insisted on buying the cheapest one possible, which is the refind Coconut Oil from KTC (as seen in this post). That one does not have a smell and I remember googling "the smell of Coconut Oil" and I suppose I came to the conclusion that it might now have a strong smell.

Oh my god how wrong I was?! I bought this Coldpressed Unrefined Coconut Oil from a health store in Sweden. It smells aaaaaa-maaaazing! Sort of like those Coconut Cakes (Not sure what they are called). I might have to start splurging out when buying Coconut Oil in the future..

I used this for my scalp every day when I was in Sweden (I was there for 18 days) and I feel like my hair has grown a lot. Not sure if it's due to the Coldpressed Coconut Oil but I am sure it had something to do with it..

As I said, I bought this from a Swedish health shop. Everything in Sweden in super expensive and so were their oils- except for Coconut Oil. I'd say I got it for a decent price, about £5 for this 225 ml jar.

So what are the benefits?

  • Helps to fight off dandruff & lice
  • One of the few oils that really get absorbed by the hair
  • A great moisturiser for your skin, it absorbs easily and doesn't feel greasy
  • Strengthen your nails
  • It contains a lot of acids such as: lauric, caprylic and capric acid. As a result of this it Coconut Oil can be antifungal & anti bacterial.
  • Can aid digestion due to it's antibacterial and antifungal properties

! For those who airdry their hair: When you have finished washing your hair, massage some Coconut Oil mixed with Peppermint Essential Oil into your scalp for a really cool- non itchy sensation when your hair is drying.
