Coconut Oil: Here's Why You Need to Use It On Your Hair & Skin Right Now!

You may have heard some celebrities touting the benefits of swishing coconut oil around in their mouths for better oral hygiene, while various outlets, including WebMD and The Atlantic, are downright skeptical. But what is not up for debate is what coconut oil can do for your skin and hair.

Naturally antibacterial and antifungal, coconut oil is a tonic for dry skin and it easily absorbs into hair for a major dose of shine and conditioning. Look for products that contain organic, unrefined coconut oil to give you the best results.

My pick? Kopari Organic Coconut Melt. This naturally rich formula is 100 percent organic, vegan, phthalate-free, cruelty-free and GMO-free. Use on body, face, hair and anywhere that needs a little TLC.
