No Poo

Coconut Oil vs. Unrefined Coconut Oil

I have been using refined coconut oil since my No Poo journey began. I still say it works great and I have no complaints. But I am a girl who loves to smell pretty and I have eliminated perfumes and body sprays and have added essential oils and pure vanilla but I miss those pretty smelling lotions. I miss the way that lotion just absorbs into the skin, HOWEVER , I do not miss the harmful chemicals, dyes and perfumes.

I just celebrated my 40th birthday and was gifted by my mom & dad (Thanks mom & dad) a enormous jar of unrefined, virgin coconut oil. The first thing I noticed was it was pure white, not yellowish like the refined stuff.

Then I opened it up, and found the smell was heavenly!!!!! That light girly scent I had been missing.

I used it in my hair, the smallest amount you can imagine, and it's like rubbing silk in your hair and the smell is Devine.

I used it on my skin after my shower, and other than the incredible scent, I noticed it absorbed very quickly into the skin, with no greasy feel. I have been using the refined, but in comparison the unrefined absorbs much more quickly.

Oh yeah and did I mention the fragrance?? Just kidding, can you tell I am obsessed!!!

I have to imagine there are many other benefits to the unrefined oil that I have not yet discovered since I've only been using it for 3 days, but I will update often as thus has got to be one of my favorites!!

Have a happy turkey day!! Be thankful!!
