Alive: Women’s

Holland & Barrett is my home away from home. I wouldn’t be surprised if I looked at my finances and realised that 95% of my monies per month went to Holland & Barrett. It’s like a retail charity that I sponsor. I’m paying for good health. I’m paying for organic produce. I’m paying for quality. So, yeah… I suppose it is a charity in a weird non-charity sort of way. 😆😂 (I’m not drunk, honest!)

Castor Oil vs Coconut Oil

Castor Oil vs Coconut oil… Which one do you use? If you answered neither, that’s fine, but which one would you choose?

In a similar report published by The Little Health Company they chose to put Coconut Oil up against the equally wonderful Olive Oil (as opposed to Castor Oil) and Coconut Oil won the battle! #WellOilBeDamned

Coconut Oil edges it in our opinion. It’s nourishing properties will leave your hair looking healthy and vibrant will feeling soft and the smell is divine.

The pros of using Castor Oil:

  1. Castor Oil is a thick, stick oil that prevents hair loss by coating strands and helps them stay firmly attached to the root.
  2. It’s is considered an anti-bacterial and anti-fungus which means: in the unlikely event that someone throws mushroom seeds on your hair, you won’t see Portobellos or Shiitakes spurting out later on. #GIrlsJustWannaHaveFUN 
  3. Being rich in Omega 3 and fatty acids makes Castor Oil a great contender if you’re looking for an oil to strengthen your nails, hair and/or skin.
  4. This oil also makes your hair glossy but almost too shiny (if overused).
  5. Castor Oil is cost-effective and a little it goes a long way.

The pros of using Coconut Oil:

  1. Coconut Oil stops and prevents dandruff. Similar to Castor Oil, it too is anti-fungal and anti-bacterial – just don’t try cleaning your hands with it after eating, shaking a flu-stricken person’s hand and/or getting off a mode of public transport, it’s oil NOT sanitiser.
  2. This essential oil is also good at protecting against hair shedding and/or head lice thanks to its Vitamins E and K content.
  3. Massaging Coconut Oil into the scalp improves blood circulation, ensures that oxygen is absorbed and strengthening the hair follicles resulting in soft, strong and healthy hair.
  4. It also improves the hair cuticle whilst keeping the scalp moisturised, prohibiting dust and pollution.
  5. Its high in fatty acids nature supplies the hair with protein which helps retain strength and eliminates breakage.
  6. Coconut Oil is one of the very few oils that has what it takes to fix split ends as well as repair damaged hair from root to tip while also smoothening rough, coarse or fizzy hair. #ItsMAGICYouKnow
