DIY Coconut Oil Lotion

Have the beach and pool left your skin dry and your hair with split ends? Check out this two-in-one DIY coconut oil lotion for skin and hair!

Chlorine at the pool and salt water at the beach can really dry out your hair and skin! If you’re dealing with end-of-summer dryness and split ends, you might be shopping around for beauty products to fix things up. The trouble with those store-bought solutions is that they often contain a lot of harmful chemicals that can damage our health in the long term.

This DIY coconut oil lotion uses only a few, natural ingredients. It’s less expensive than store-bought split and treatments and moisturizers, and it’s healthier, too! On first glance, making this DIY beauty recipe might seem like an investment. A bottle of argan oil, for example, is not cheap. Keep in mind that you aren’t using the whole container of any ingredient to make this DIY coconut oil lotion. These supplies will last you beyond the up front investment in ingredients.

Not too shabby, right? Check out this video how-to from POPSUGAR Beauty:

In case you don’t have time to watch the video right now, here’s a shopping list, so you can grab your DIY coconut oil lotion ingredients and watch the video for instructions later on:

+ 1 tablespoon vegetable glycerin

+ 1 cup coconut oil

+ 2 tablespoons sweet almond oil

+ 1 tablespoon argan oil

This recipe isn’t complicated, but it’s not as simple as mixing these things up in a bowl. Watch the video for detailed instructions on how to make this all-purposed whipped DIY coconut oil lotion.
