Superdrug Coconut Oil

Superdrug Coconut Oil - £2.29

I love anything Coconut and this has fast become my most reached for product. I'm constantly reading upon the wonders of Coconut oil, whether it be for cooking, using on the skin or as a hair treatment, and so I went on the hunt to get my hands on some and came across this 125ml tub available at Superdrug for just £2.29. My main intentions were to use this upon my hair as a leave in conditioner since I heard that Coconut oil was the secret behind Khloe Kardasian's gorgeous, silky locks. 

The product is solid so requires warmth to melt before using, I have found placing the tub into a bowl of hot water is the most efficient way to do so. I choose to apply the oil onto damp hair, avoiding the roots and focusing more towards the ends, I then tie my hair up in a high bun and allow the product to sink in over night. Once rinsed the next morning, my hair feels noticeably softer, looks more glossy and of course smells lovely! Do bare in mind that if too much oil is applied to the hair it can appear rather greasy despite best attempts to wash away any excess product. 

As well as using this oil as a hair treatment I have thoroughly enjoyed using it on my body, especially upon my legs after shaving. It's really soothing on the skin, leaving it wonderfully smooth throughout the day. This is suitable for all skin types and better yet has not been tested on animals.
