Amazing Uses For Coconut Oil

Coconut oil might just be the most versatile health food on the planet. Not only is it my favorite cooking oil, but coconut oil uses are numerous and can extend to being a form of natural medicine, be used for natural beauty treatments and so much more.
The coconut tree is considered the “tree of life” in much of Southeast Asia, India, the Philippines, and other tropical locations. And today, there are over 1,500 studies proving the health benefits of coconut oil.
Some of the top coconut oil benefits include:
Balances Hormones
Kills Candida
Improves Digestion
Moisturizes Skin
Reduces Cellulite
Decreases Wrinkles and Age Spots
Balances Blood Sugar and Improve Energy
Improves Alzheimer’s
Increases HDL and Lower LDL Cholesterol
Burns Fat

1. Cooking at High Heat (Sauteing and Frying) – Coconut oil is great for cooking at a high heat because of its high smoke point. Many other oils like olive oil can oxidize when heated but because coconut oil is made up of healthy saturated fats it remains stable under high temperatures.

2. Say Bye to frizzy hair –Next time you need to tame those annoying flyaways or frizzy hairs, instead of reaching for a serum full of harsh chemicals, coconut oil is an amazing alternative. Taking a tiny bit of oil on your hands, smooth down your hair to evenly apply the coconut oil to your mane after styling. The oil will prevent frizz and lock in that shine. And no, it won’t make your hair feel all oily either – just make sure to avoid your scalp area and not apply too much. Say goodbye to bad hair days and bring on the weather!

3. Natural Energy Booster – The medium chain triglycerides in coconut oil, when partnered with chia seeds, will give you an energy boost when you need a mid-afternoon pickup, or after a strenuous workout. Chia seeds are known to boost performance, and endurance while the coconut oil aids in digestion and metabolizing of the chia seeds. Mix 1 tablespoon coconut oil with ½ tablespoon of chia seeds, and enjoy from the spoon, or spread on sprouted grain bread.

4. Creamer for Your Coffee – Adding a spoonful of coconut oil to your coffee can give you an extra boost of energy and replace dairy creamer. If you put your hot coffee in a blender, with the coconut oil and your favorite natural sweetener, and blend, you will be amazed at the rich creamy flavor, without adding any dairy. In the Far East, many athletes blend their morning coffee with coconut oil and grass-fed ghee to increase performance and energy.

5. Chocolate Coconut Fondue – Enjoy dipping fresh fruit into dark chocolate? Well, by using coconut oil, dark chocolate has never been healthier, or easier. Slowly melt 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and 2 cups of chopped dark chocolate (preferably 70% cacao) together over low heat in a double boiler, stirring occasionally. If mixture is too tight, add a touch more coconut oil and stir until warm and melted. Transfer to a fondue pot, and dip with even more health-promoting foods like fresh strawberries, bananas, and sliced apples.

6. Boost Nutrients in Smoothies – Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of coconut oil to any fruit smoothie for a boost of cholesterol fighting compounds. Side benefit? It improves the texture and mouth feel of smoothies, while adding healthy fats to your diet.

 

7. Healthy Popcorn topping – Remember when you were a kid and visited your favorite theatre for a matinee? Remember the glorious smell that permeated the air? Chances are that it was popped in coconut oil. Pop organic corn kernels in coconut oil and then drizzle with just a touch more melted coconut oil and some sea salt.

8. Replacement for Non-stick Cooking Spray – In a non-stick skillet, sometimes eggs still stick. With coconut oil, that is no longer a problem. Add just a teaspoon or two of coconut oil to the pan, and melt. Add the eggs and cook as desired. Cleanup will be a breeze.

9. Create Healthy Homemade Mayonnaise – Use as oil in homemade mayonnaise recipe mixed with egg yolks. In a blender, combine 4 egg yolks, 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar, and ½ teaspoon dried mustard. Blend until combined. With blender still running, slowly add 1 cup coconut oil (melted), and ½ cup olive oil to create an emulsion. If you add the oils too fast, the mayo will break. If this happens, all is not lost; add ½ tablespoon of tahini, and blend until smooth.

10. Topping For Baked Potatoes – Put coconut oil on baked sweet potatoes in place of conventional butter and then sprinkle on cinnamon. Also, use it for baked sweet potato french fries with some rosemary and sea salt.

11. Replace Unhealthy Fats When Baking – Yes, you can bake with coconut oil. Use the same amount as butter or vegetable oil that is called for in the recipe. For biscuits, pie crusts, and other preparations where the fat is to be cold, freeze the coconut oil prior to using. Use coconut oil to grease baking sheets and cake pans, and your baked goods will simply slide right out.

Your Foolproof Guide to Caring for Your Hair Weaves and Full Lace Wigs

Just follow these simple golden rules and taking care of your virgin hair and full lace wigs will be a breeze.  Plus, taking care of your hair weave and full lace wigs will help extend its life!!!!

  1. Let your hair air-dry at home, take 2-3 hours to wash and naturally dry your hair – Do not use heat as this will swell and dry your strands.
  2. Apply a small amount of Almond or Coconut oil 2-3 times a week or when required. Argan oil is a great finishing oil for styling and frizz, however its a dry oil and does not moisturize the hair as well as Almond or Coconut.
  3. Brush before bed and before washing to ensure there are no natural occurring tangles caused by wind or friction.
  4. Don’t neglect your real hair- Hair that hasn’t been maintained under a weave may begin to suffer from breakage or matting when the extensions are removed.
  5. Do not brush wet hair as that is when hair follicles are at their most vulnerable.
  6. Wavy & Curly Hair: If you have wavy or curly textured hair extensions and plan to wear the hair wavy or curly you need to apply a curl defining/curl control cream while the hair is wet. This way it will stop the hair from frizzing and lock in the wave or curl in the hair.
  7. Never sleep with wet hair-In order to minimize the risk of tangling your hair, make sure it is dry before you go to bed. You can pin curl or plait your hair to help keep it tangle free.
  8. Less is better– Do not overload your hair with hair products as that will weigh it down and cause it to tangle.

 

 

 

Get Beyonce’s Hair Look With These Simple Tips

We’d be lying if we said we weren’t obsessed with Beyoncé’s every hair move. Whether she’s rocking a platinum pixie or easy waves, the singer sure knows how to keep us on our toes. We all know that Beyonce is the queen of wearing those soft touchable waves that look so effortless and elegant at the same time.

Get Beyonce’s look by checking out some of our tips inspired by Bey below.

  • We recommend starting off with super high quality wavy hair: Check out our selection here: Virgin Remy Body Wave  and/or Wavy Full Lace Wig
  • To enhance the waves,  first put a high quality serum to moisturize and then separate your hair into 2-inch sections and grab a 1.5 inch flat iron to create loose waves. Place the flat iron a few inches below the root and twist the flat iron, a turn and a half before gliding the iron down the hair shaft. This adds a curl throughout the entire length of hair, while also smoothing it out and making it look effortless. Next, run your fingers through the hair to loosen up the curl and quickly pass the flat iron over one last time to achieve the singer’s edgy finish.
  • If you would like to go heatless, we recommend using flexi rods.  Once you discover how amazing flexi rods are, you will never go back to using anything else. Below is a video showing you how to use flexi rods.
