Never mind that it's found in the kitchen, coconut oil has become the moment's most obsessed about natural beauty staple.
It has an enthusiastic following of fans who champion the fatty-acid-rich oil as an amazing hair de-frizzer, teeth whitener, body scrubber, and miracle makeup remover. How many of these beauty uses actually pan out?

We cracked open the truth on the nut's beauty benefits, by tapping cosmetic chemist Ni’Kita Wilson,Look Great, Live Green author and Sumbody founder Deborah Burnes, and Rose-Marie Swift, the formulator-founder ofRMS Beauty.

Here's what they make of 14 head-to-toe beauty uses for coconut oil.

#1 - Intensive Hair Conditioner

All our experts agreed that coconut oil can work wonders for dry, damaged, can't-get-the-tangle-out hair. “Its fatty acids soften hair,” says cosmetic chemist Ni’Kita Wilson. How to apply it? Author-beauty formulator Burnes suggests rubbing a small amount of coconut oil between your hands—“so you’re moisturizing them at the same time!”—then applying it to your hair from roots to ends one section at a time. (Note: Thin hair types may not want to apply it to the roots.) Rinse it off in the shower for better-behaving locks.
