Coconut oil has been used as hair oil for centuries and we all know it's review is beyond amazing. For some reasons we would rather leave to the scientist( because it's their job to know💁) it keeps the hair strong, nourished and prevents hair loss. The fact that it has a yummy smell is also a big plus.
However, coconut oil isn't limited to hair care, as it is rich in carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals which are good for the human body.

               DIRECTIONS :::::
STEP 1 
            Break your coconuts and remove from the shell.



STEP 2
            Cut coconut into small pieces


STEP 3
            Pour into a blender and add enough  water, so the blades can run through them easily.

           After squeezing out the cream, you can pour the shaft back into the blender, add some             water and blend a second time.
           Putting the milk inside the freezer for about 30 minutes, makes it easy to collect the particles.

  2. I've made coconut oil via this method, it was just annoying that the oil I got wasn't so much. It was then I understood why coconut oil is expensive.

    1. Yes o. You basically have to crush loads and loads of coconut (about 50) and use loads and load of gas to get a 250ml bottle. Who has time for that? It is not financially sound at all, but at least the knowledge is worth gaining.

      And thank God we have made it easy. We sell coconut oil on our store here. africanaturalistas.com/ourstore
