Word of the Day: Coconut Oil

coconut oil

noun | ko·kuh·nuht oy·uhl

An edible oil extracted from the kernel or meat of matured coconuts harvested from the coconut palm.

Rich in fatty acids, coconut oil has been used for just about everything — healthy recipes, hair conditioner, supplements, moisturizer, makeup remover, and more. There’s a reason why some people even opt to directly buy jars (or tubs!) of this superfood: it’s an inexpensive and natural way to help hydrate skin and hair, making it the perfect ingredient to include in everything from DIY scrubs to hair masks. Whether you’re a DIY enthusiast or prefer your products in sleek packaging, look out for coconut oil if you’re searching for a way to hydrate and moisturize your hair and skin.

The coconut oil in John Frieda’s Frizz Ease Beyond Smooth line relies on pure coconut oil to make your hair super-soft and manageable.
