Simple Ways To Use Coconut Oil For Skin And Hair Care

3 ways to use coconut oil for skincareCoconut oil for skin and hair care is hardly new to natural beauty. It lost popularity with the increased use of commercial products but has been on the rise for the past few years.

Some of the things that make it so valuable is its long shelf, benefits for many skin types, convenience, and low cost.

In all honesty though, I paid very little attention to it since I started making my own beauty products in the late 90’s. It just wasn’t as sexy as some of the more exotic natural ingredients I was accustomed to using.

It was when my sister told me that she started using coconut oil in place of an anti-wrinkle cream that my interest was renewed.

She was using raw coconut oil butter on its own and the results were/are fantastic! To be honest, I was a little bit jealous. All of a sudden people kept thinking SHE was the younger sister. Gasp!

In all seriousness, she loves it because her skin looks great but also because it’s super convenient, easy, and affordable. Her enthusiasm coupled with the results got me excited enough to start experimenting with it more regularly.

Here are some simple and practical blends I came up with….

Every Day Beauty Blends Using Coconut Oil

If you want keep it really simple when using coconut oil for skin and hair care, do what my sister does and use it on its own. If however you combine it with essential oils and/or carrier oils you’ll get a stronger and more effective blend.

Following are a few simple blends that can become part of your every day beauty routine.

Every Day Beauty Blends Using Coconut OilSuper Easy Cleansing Serum For All Skin Types

This super simple blend is a great cleanser for all skin types. It uses Ylang Ylang (the great essential oil balancer) and Coconut oil which is great for all skin types.

This blend will clean and protect your skin while working to balance your sebaceous glands.

Part of why I love this blend for a cleanser is because of its holistic benefits. Ylang Ylang is an aphrodisiac. It’s also extremely calming and soothing.

Prep and Use:

  1. Add 2 oz of Coconut oil to a jar
  2. Add 5 drops of Ylang Ylang and stir (I often use a chopstick of the coconut is cooler and hard)
  3. Apply to skin and wipe off with a gentle sponge.
  4. I usually don’t worry about getting rid of all it (I use it as a sort of night-time moisturizer too) but if you want, you can use a floral water like lavender or witch hazel to make sure you get it all off.
  5. This is a cleansing SERUM so should not be used daily. Use it 1-2 times a week.

Both Ylang Ylang and coconut oil are usually good for sensitive skin. But, there are instances where alternatives are valuable. See below.

Alternatives: For problem skin like eczema, combine it with Roman Chamomile essential oil as well as crushed chamomile (instead of Ylang Ylang). This cleansing serum is good for dry, sensitive, and irritated skin.

Quick, Natural Anti-Wrinkle Make Up RemoverQuick, Natural Anti-Wrinkle Make Up Remover

Combine Coconut Oil With Argan Oil for a simple and effective make-up remover for all skin types.

The reason I recommend Argan Oil for this blend is because of its STRONG anti-wrinkle properties. Coconut oil has some anti-aging properties as well, but it is not as powerful.

Prep and Use:

  1. Add 4 oz Coconut Oil to a jar
  2. Add 1 oz Argan Oil to the same jar and stir
  3. Apply to skin and wipe off makeup with a sponge
  4. I usually don’t worry about getting rid of all it (I use it as a sort of night-time moisturizer too) but if you want, you can use a floral water like lavender or witch hazel to make sure you get it all off.

A Simple 4 Part Dandruff Treatment

While I haven’t been able to experiment with this particular treatment (since I haven’t had dandruff) my aromatherapy teacher had a lot of experience in the field and said that it was AMAZING for people with Dandruff.

Tea tree is a good essential oil to pair it with. BUT, if you want a more pleasant scent, pair it with a rosemary, lemon, and lavender essential oil blend. This is a refreshing scent for both guys and gals and really works to get rid of dandruff.

Prep and Use:

  1. Add 6 oz Coconut Oil to a jar
  2. Add 5 drops Lavender Essential Oil, 8 drops Lemon Essential Oil, and 4 drops Rosemary to the same jar and stir
  3. Apply to the scalp part of your head and rub it in. Let it sit for minutes.
  4. Wash off as normal.

You could do a blend of the 3 essential oils in water and spritz your scalp with it 1-2 times a day as well.

The scent is wonderfully refreshing! It’s actually a blend I used for one of the scrubs in my Spa line back in the early 2000’s. It was a favorite!

The Main Benefits Of Coconut Oil For Skin And Hair Care

Following is a simple explanation for why Coconut Oil benefits the skin and hair.

Coconut Oil For Skin Care

  • It is more readily absorbed than a lot of other oils because it shares a similar consistency with the natural body oils in your face and body.
  • It is absorbed quickly and easily and goes deep into the sebaceous glands.
  • Its quick absorption is good because it takes all of the other ingredients combined with it even deeper into your skin glands as well.
  • It has a long shelf life so it won’t go rancid/bad. Rancid oils are as bad for you and your skin as chemical products.
  • It gives creams and lotions an extra-creamy consistency.
  • It dissolves in water – so if you take a bath with it, you won’t come out with greasy skin, BUT you will be moisturized.

Coconut Oil For Hair Care

  • It’s not super oily, so when you put it in your hair you can actually get it out in a single wash. Leaving it in overnight for extra conditioning is also possible!
  • It can be use for dry hair, dry scalp, and also frizzy hair – this means any hair type from super straight to curly.
  • It seals in the oils already existent in the hair helping it to stay softer and smoother.
  • It protects your hair from the environment.
