Today, everyone is talking about coconut oil. You can use it on your skin, in your hair, to cook with, and it is said to have many different benefits. With the big coconut oil rage, other beneficial oils are being pushed to the side. Don’t discount the wonders of coconut oil, but incorporate these five other oils into your beauty routine and amp up your results.
Amla Oil Also known as Indian gooseberry oil, amla oil is rare. The tannin in the oil is used in various shampoos to fight hair loss and premature graying. You can use amla oil alone by applying a small amount to your scalp after shampooing. This oil rejuvenates your locks and can fight graying and hair loss and if used often enough, negates the need for conditioner.
Argan Oil Not long ago, argan oil started appearing in many hair products, but its uses are for more than just hair. The oil contains vitamin E and antioxidants and they are quite beneficial to both your skin and your hair.
You can use pure argan oil as a facial moisturizer. Not only does it moisturize your skin, but it fights acne, too. If your skin is sunburned, applying argan oil is soothing.
Argan oil is great for your hair, too. It moisturizes it and protects it from the heat of styling tools.
Grape Seed Oil Often used for baking, this oil is the perfect substitute for shaving cream. Not only is it natural, but it is moisturizing and the light oil lubricates your skin for a nick-free shave. It’s not only for shaving, grape seed oil is also good for using all over your body in place of lotion.
Pomegranate Seed Oil Similar to argan oil, this oil offers benefits for both your hair and your skin. You can use it on your skin to improve its tone and to reduce collagen deterioration, a great anti-aging option.
Pomegranate seed oil is good for your hair and your scalp, too. By rubbing it on your scalp, it helps to stimulate the blood circulation. This helps hair growth. You can also use it in your hair to strengthen and revive it.
Tea Tree Oil This oil is full of benefits. While it is not moisturizing like coconut oil or the other oils listed, it can fight fungal infections, banish acne, battle dandruff, and cure bad breath. It might seem like a good idea to drink it or cook with it, but don’t go that far, it is toxic if consumed. You can use it as a mouthwash, though. Just mix a few drops of the oil with water, swoosh it around in your mouth, and spit it out
