Coconut oil is EVERYWHERE these days. Have you noticed?
There are so many uses for this sourced-from-the-tropics ingredient as a beauty aid, household cleaner, lubricant, cooking oil, and antibacterial agent.
Even though it’s had its coming-of-age in recent years, the history books (and the Interwebs) tell me that it has been widely used by cultures around the planet for thousands of years and adopted for its benefits: It’s known to burn fat, fight bacteria, remove makeup, and more. Though I could go on and on about its many uses, let’s talk about hair and the ways coconut oil can help. I feel that I’m a pseudo expert in this category, thanks to my Filippino heritage.
Here’s the proof:
Me, age 3 ½, sitting on coconuts in the Philippines
I’ve done my fair share of research and testing with my hair and coconut oil. Here’s what I discovered over the years.
🥥 It nourishes your scalp with vitamins and fatty acids.
🥥 It penetrates the cuticle of your hair.
🥥 It controls frizz by smoothing the cuticles on split ends and
🥥 It replenishes moisture.
🥥 It stops pesky dandruff flakes from making an appearance.
🥥 It strengthens your hair and reduces breakage
🥥 It protects your hair from environmental damage caused by sun, smoke, and wind.
With this in mind, I was pretty darn excited to see that etee has released their new Coconut Shampoo and Conditioner Bars.
You can now experience the tropics in your shower with these plant-based bars while giving your locks a long-lasting boost of softness and hydration.
Keep it tangle-free, friends!
