With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season quickly approaching, we must be sure not to neglect our redhead skin and hair care routines. One of the most beloved and effective ways to care for our red hair and fair skin is by using coconut oil and products containing coconut oil.
Look for cold pressed virgin organic coconut oil. As a hair treatment, coconut oil can be used as a conditioner and then rinsed out for those with fine hair. If your hair is coarse, try using coconut oil as a leave-in smoothing treatment.
You can also use coconut oil on your redhead eyelashes. Some claim that it stimulates hair growth and makes your lashes shiny and soft. It’s gentle enough to be used regularly by redheads with delicate skin and hair.
Actual coconuts have been found to be extremely nutritious and rich in fiber and vitamins. So, it’s no wonder many beauty companies are including coconut into their products.
If you’re not into the DIY process of using coconut oil or simply want more of it, we recommend implementing more ‘Redhead Friendly’ approved beauty products infused with coconut oil into your daily beauty routine.
Here are our favorites:
1. Body Lotion:
Yes to Coconut Hydrate & Restore Ultra Light Spray Body Lotion offers a lightweight lotion for those with sensitive skin. It’s made with coconut and sunflower oils. Plus, the spray nozzle makes it quick and convenient to use.
Kiehl’s Amino Acid Shampoo is enriched with coconut oil and made for all hair types. Its consistency adds softness, shine, and body to your fabulous red hair.
3. Body Polish
Body polishes exfoliate the skin to slough away dead skin, leaving skin hydrated and soft. Herbivore Botanicals Body Polish is made with virgin coconut oil and perfect for those who are sensitive to most body exfoliators.
4. Lip Care
Burt’s Bees Coconut and Pear Lip Balm reminds me of the beach, minus the sunburn. It contains coconut oil to help leave your lips smooth and soft all season long.
Face sheets are effective and so easy to use. Too Cool For School’s Coconut Ceramide Mask is a sheer, lightweight sheet mask drenched in coconut water for instant and refreshing hydration.
6. Face Oil
Kopari’s Coconut Sheer Oil acts as a facial serum or hair tamer. Apply a few drops onto cleansed skin before locking it in with a moisturizer. Apply a few drops to your hair to eliminate frizz and flyaways.
Rock it like a Redhead!
