How to Apply Coconut Oil to Hair, According to a Hairstylist

We can sing coconut oil's praises for days. When it comes to the hardest-working multitasking oils in the game, not many can compete with coconut oil's reputation of solving so many ailments at once. You can depend on coconut oil to swiftly remove makeup, hydrate your dry skin, strengthen your nail cuticles, whiten your teeth, grow out your brows, and more.

I've kept a bottle of Trader Joe's Organic Virgin Coconut Oil ($5) close by for years. Growing up with severe eczema, I relied on this all-natural oil to soothe my inflamed, dry skin and haven't been able to put it down since. I also love lathering it on my lips at night (especially in the winter) and waking up to a supple, smooth pout.

Up next, find out every other reason you should be using this oil every day.
