2. As a hair mask: The natural ingredients and acids in the oil functions the same for our hair as it does for our skin. It locks in the moisture for softer strands once applied and rinsed out. Take a scoopful of oil and mostly focus on the area away from the roots, with your fingers get betweem the strands and massage the ends. Leave in for 30 mins to 1 hour. Afterwards, rinse using your regular shampoo and conditioner;

3. As eye cream: Coconut oil is amazing to use on the general eye area because it has those natural ingredients that nourish and heal, without all the added fluff that usually sits in a pot of an eye cream.
