I had bright red hair, dyed it dark to grow out my natural colour and have it blend it, regretted it months later. So a few days ago I decided to bleach all my hair (thinking I will lose half my length to bleach damage). So I drenched my hair in coconut oil before, and wow, my hair does not feel damaged at all. At all! It’s madness. Before I have tried putting conditioner in my hair, some mixed in the bleach to make it less damaging, but nothing worked as well as unrefined coconut oil.

What else is good for protecting your hair before bleaching?

Now I will only need to go roots, but still I will cover the roots in bleach before I use a weak bleach to raise the natural colour a bit . . but wow.

Need to spread the word to all my friends (who change hair colour from week to week, one day green, another day red, another day baby pastel colours) etc hehe .
I can keep my entire length ! This is great news 


And my hair feels nicer than before, I never bothered clarifying, think I had a lot of coconut oil build up in my hair . . or when visiting Sweden, the water is better for me than the water in London.

I use coconut oil when bleaching too, works wonders! 

 My hair owes Ktani and her coconut oil advice lot! Wish I’d known about this wonder product when I first started bleaching.

What surprises me is that actual hair professionals don’t know about this brilliant characteristic of coconut. I have my bleach highlights done at the salon and when I turned up with oiled hair my hairdresser didn’t have a clue what i was on about. We need to spread of LHC word!

How to Use Coconut Oil in Your Skincare Routine

How to Use Coconut Oil in Your Skincare Routine

Coconut oil is often praised for its many health benefits and its versatility in cooking and baking. While these many benefits may have gotten you to commit to always keeping some coconut oil in your pantry, coconut oil has a big place outside of the kitchen as well.

Coconut oil’s healing, antibacterial, and cleansing properties take on an entirely new personality when used topically, making it the ideal multiple-products-in-one item to add to your skincare and personal grooming regimes. Since coconut oil is gentle on the skin and not laden with chemicals and ingredients you have to watch out for (like most of the skin and beauty care products sold today), this is a safe and easy oil for anyone to use and experiment with.

Here are 4 popular ways coconut oil can be used to replace the dozens of pricey, and often ineffective, products sitting in your bathroom.

Coconut oil is well known for being rich in health benefits for people, but this product is also highly beneficial for dogs and cats as well, and for pretty much all of the same reasons it’s great for humans. Incorporating coconut oil into cats’ and dogs’ lives both topically and internally will undoubtedly lead to dramatic improvements in their overall health.

Getting Coconut Oil into Your Daily Snacking

Snacking is something nearly everyone does and likes to do. It’s fun, easy, and can give you that extra mood lift or energy boost you need in the middle of the day.

Unfortunately, mindless snacking can also lead to a lot of unhealthy habits such as feeding a sugar addiction. The body often craves foods and drinks that will boost energy, and sugar is usually the most readily available source.

Perhaps the best alternative you should be reaching for, instead of something loaded with processed sugary carbs, is coconut oil. Coconut oil is incredibly easy to work with, versatile, and can (and will) boost your energy, mood, and health.
