It seems as though every day I get news of another ‘great new this’ or ‘fabulous new that’, and I’ll be the first to put my hand up & gleefully admit it makes me just as excited as the rest of you to be in the know, to hear of things first, and to be updated on the latest & greatest – however, there’s something to be said for the ancient, the stoic, the classic, the tried & tested. Known and used for thousands of years by island cultures, coconut oil is one such legendary ingredient that falls squarely in that category. Not only has it properties that make it a staple in most organic beauty products as well as most natural skin & haircare collections, but it’s stunningly simple, not expensive and is one of nature’s most potent emollients for everything from hair conditioning to skin moisturizing – and you can cook beautiful food with it! This latest release from Dessert Essence Organics harnesses all the goodness of coconut oil in the form of a nourishing Coconut Oil Shampoo & Conditioner, that promises to bring back shine, eliminate frizzies, restore luster and deliver intense moisture to dry, over-processed hair. Add to that some gorgeous packaging and a price tag of around $7, and you’ve scored yourself what I’d call a beautiful bargain.
