A Coconut Summer Routine




A few weeks ago when I was invited to the Holland & Barrett 'More' store opening they kindly gifted me with some goodies including Coconut Oil as well as Dr Organic Virgin Coconut Oil shampoo, conditioner and lip balm. Now, I absolutely love anything that smells like coconut especially in the summer time so I was super excited to try these products.

I love using coconut oil for my cooking as it's a healthier alternative to normal oil, it also adds a yummy taste to your food. Recently I have enjoyed using it every couple of weeks as a hair mask. I just get a small amount and rub it in my hands until it melts then apply from the mid section to the ends of my hair. I then leave this in my hair for a few hours while I potter about.

After a few hours I then wash it out with the Dr Organic Virgin Coconut Oil shampoo and conditioner. Due to the heat my hair has been getting a lot dryer and brittle and I've honestly found these products to be little life savers in taming the frizz and giving me silky soft hair without getting instantly greasy. Did I mention they smell A-MAZ-ING?!

I've also been finding my lips getting really dry because I'm a sucker at licking and biting my lips when I'm trying to concentrate at work. I don't really use lips balms as I find they can be a bit greasy and shiny (can someone please invent a matte lip balm?!) but this one by Dr Organics is a new firm favourite. It moistourises my lips without slipping and sliding all over the shot in the heat. The only downside is I desperately want to eat it!

Have you tried any of these products before? Did you like them as well?

Hope you all had a lovely weekend.
