Don’t get the Zazu reference? Probably need to go ahead and rent a copy of The Lion King, STAT. Anyway, while out the other day at Target (a perk of the suburban sprawl) I was picking up the necessary toiletries when I stumbled upon a packet of Palmer’s Coconut Oil Deep Conditioner. I was intrigued. Made with pure coconut milk, coconut oil, and vitamin E this little packet promised a big punch. Well, let me tell you- the best $1.69 I’ve ever spent. Seriously. I’ve spent hundreds of dollars on fancy pants deep conditioning treatments and I must admit… this bargain beauty buy held its own. Not to mention, it smells absolutely delicious. Every time I flip my hair (and I do that a lot), I’m transported to an exotic island with white sandy beaches, never ending pina coladas, and men in Speedos fanning me with palm fronds… Oh, sorry… forgot where I was.
Coconut oil isn’t just good for you hair though. There’s a plethora of other uses for coconut oil:
- Psoriasis relief
- Cholesterol control
- Weight control
- Aids immune system
