DIY Beauty – Coconut and Sesame Oil

22 Aug

DIY Beauty – Coconut and Sesame Oil

Before I recommend something to others I like to try it out myself first, especially when it comes to beauty advice.

Therefore, you can be sure that I am not just posting something that I heard or read about, but I tried it myself and have seen positive results. I would like to share my positive experience of two oils, coconut and sesame oil for making you more beautiful than you already are.

The most important thing is that you should use natural coconut and sesame oil. You find the oil in a Health Food Store.

 

Coconut Oil

When I lived in Ireland I went to a Health Food Store to look for organic hair masks. I could not find  any and so I went to ask the lovely shop assistant if they have any available in-store. She told me I should try a simple and effective natural hair mask – Coconut Oil. I followed her advice and I can tell you that the effect is amazing and I love the coconut scent it leaves in my hair.

Coconut Oil + Hair

In the evening, wash your hair with shampoo once (I usually wash my hair twice with shampoo, therefore I wash my hair only applying the shampoo once) so all the dirt from the hair can be washed out. Take some coconut oil (if it is not liquid, warm it up in a bowl) and apply to your wet hair. Then close your eyes and do a small head massage. The smell of the coconut oil and the head massage will relax you and give you a good feeling. Once you are done with the head massage, leave the oil in your hair and put a cotton towel over your pillow before you go to sleep. Working with oil can be messy and therefore it is better to cover your pillow, so it stays clean. During an 8 hours sleep the oil has the chance to benefit our hair the most.  The only thing that you have to do is just have a good night’s rest.

In the morning you should wash the coconut oil out of your hair and wash your hair at least twice. Therefore, you can make sure that the oil gets out of your hair and you will not have any oil residue in your hair. Trust me! If you don’t wash it well enough, your hair will look oily and this is not the effect you want to have.

After washing your hair, just dry it normally, by avoiding the use of any chemical products. You will see the effect immediately.

The effects that I experienced were:

  • I could brush my long hair easier
  • My hair looked more shiny and healthier (for the whole summer long I did not use any chemical products to protect my long blonde hair, just coconut oil)
  • Applying the coconut oil once a week I could see that my hair grew faster

Coconut Oil + Body

The good thing about the coconut oil is that you could use it not only for hair but apply it to your whole body. Before taking a shower apply the coconut oil and then take the shower without using too much shower gel or soap. The reason why you should use it before the shower is, that the oil needs to combine with water and then it has the powerful effect. You could also apply the oil after taking a shower. You just have to make sure, that you apply the oil before drying your body with the towel.

The coconut oil smells good and makes your body look good. Besides that it provides your body with enough moisture.

Coconut Oil + Make-up Remover

This is the perfect make-up remover for me. Take a make–up remover pad and wet it. Put a drop or two of the coconut oil on the pad and apply it on your face to remove make–up. It works perfectly by removing make-up from your eyes and face. Another positive effect is that your eyelashes will grow faster.

 

Sesame Oil

This oil has been used for hundreds of years. If you are familiar with Ayurveda medicine, the traditional Hindu medicine, you will know that they used sesame oil to heal their bodies.

 

Sesame Oil and the Body

Apply the oil exactly like the coconut oil. You will get a better effect when applying the oil before you take a shower.

Sesame oil has a neutral smell. Not only does it provide the body with enough moisture, it also helps you avoid infections.

 

Sesame Oil and the Nose – especially in the cold winter time

I got this useful advice from my grandma. Due to the climate conditions in the winter, not only does our skin suffer but also our nose. Our nose can dry out and therefore my grandma told me to use sesame oil as nose spay.  Just put the sesame oil in an empty nose spray bottle and apply it before going to bed.  It works perfectly for me and helps me to avoid getting sick.
