Olive Oil

Another article about an oil today. I’ll tell you about olive oil, you can use it for many things and you can buy it in the supermarket.

Olive oil is amazing for dry skin and hair. It’s used to erase stretch marks and scars, and it also strengthen your nails. It has vitamin E in it, and it will make your skin more elastic.

Face

You can use olive oil to remove your make-up. Just apply the oil on a cotton pad, and rub it gently over your face. Rinse your face with water after that. You can also mix the oil with sugar, to make a scrub or make a mask with some honey.

Body

To scrub my body, I like to mix the olive oil with seasalt. You can use olive oil on really dry parts of your body, like your elbows. You should be careful with the amount, because you don’t want to smell like olive oil. It’s also nice to at some of the oil to bath water. You can use warmed olive oil to erase stretch marks.

Hair

Just like the coconut oil, you can use the olive oil as a mask. You can leave it in for a whole night, or just for half an hour. It’s also a treatment for dandruff and a dry scalp.

You should definitely try this oil out, I hope this gave you some ideas on how to use it. Thank you for reading! 🙂

Coconut Oil

In my article about castor oil, I told you that I mix the oil with coconut oil. This is my favorite oil of all, because it really saved my hair. My hair was always really dry and dull, and it broke off really easily. I heard that coconut oil is amazing for damaged and dry hair, so I tried it out. After the first time I used it, I already knew: this is what my hair needs. My hair became stronger, shinier and I can finally grow it longer.

There isn’t any oil that can be as easily absorbed by your hair as coconut oil. That’s because of the structure of the oil. This strong structure also keeps the moisture in your hair, it won’t let it escape easily. Moisture is really important for strong, shiny hair. It’s also important that your scalp isn’t dry, because healthy hair grows out a healthy scalp. Coconut oil is also a treatment for dandruff.

100% coconut oil is solid, it’ll become liquid when you make it warmer. The easiest way to do this, is rubbing it in your hands.

This is how I use it: I apply the oil all over my hair, more at the ends, less at the roots. I mix a little bit of coconut oil with castor oil, and put it on my scalp. I wrap a towel around my head and leave the oil in overnight. In the morning I wash it out, and my hair is really shiny, soft and a lot stronger!

Natural products are amazing for my hair. They are cheap, and you know what you’re putting in your hair. Even if you have no troubles with your hair, you should try this oil out. It will make your hair even more beautiful! Thank you for reading. 🙂

Castor Oil

I guess this happened to many people; you spended a lot of money on a skin or hair care product, but it doesn’t help at all. I know how you feel, it happened to me so many times. That’s why I started replacing some of my expensive, chemical junk for natural products, like castor oil. Castor oil is a great product for both your skin and your hair.

Hair

Castor oil is known as a hair-grow-product. It’s said to make your hair grow faster and thicker, and leaves your hair soft and shiny. Because your hair grows out of your scalp, you should also apply the oil there. You only need a little bit of the oil. It is really thick and sticky, so you should spread it out. You can leave it in over night, but be sure to wrap a towel or an old scarf around your head. You don’t want stains from this oil on your bed, because it is really hard to get out.

If you have light and thin hair like me, it’s better to wash the oil out next morning. Otherwise your hair will look greasy. Because I think castor oil is too thick and sticky for my thin hair, I combine it with coconut oil (This oil is perfect for really dry hair, I’ll write a post about it soon).

Skin

If you have an oily skin, it might be a little bit scary to put on oil on it. But putting oil on your skin is so much better than putting on some alcohol-based product. Because it dries your skin out, it is working only temporarily. Your skin will react with making more oil, so in the end it doesn’t work at all.

If you put oil on your skin, your skin doesn’t have to make more oils. The most effective way to use it, is leaving it over night as a mask. Before you apply it, you should open your pores with warm water. The oil will purify your skin. You don’t notice the results directly, but after a few weeks you’ll see the difference.

Some people are afraid to use it on their skin, because it promotes hair growth. But don’t worry; castor oil can’t make hairs appear on places where they normally don’t appear. The hairs on your face are so thin, they won’t be affected by the oil.

Castor oil isn’t expensive, and you just need a little bit. There may be other oils that work better for you, so I’ll be writing about other oils too.

What kind of natural product do you use?
