Have you heard all the rage about coconut oil lately? I actually gave these as gifts earlier this year and since then I’ve discovered many other benefits from using it. This really is the perfect little gift.
Let’s first start with the hair treatment. This would make a fun Mother’s Day, Teacher or Birthday gift for someone that has long hair and could use some good natural moisturizing.
I originally saw this hair treatment on How Does She. I suggest going to their site if you want to see the instructions complete with pictures. Or you could print out the printable instructions I’ve created for you here.
What you need to make coconut oil jars for gifts:
Coconut Oil (practically free if you use this coupon)
Glass Jars (I got mine at Walmart for under $2 each)
Ribbon (Dollar Store)
Shower caps (optional)
My daughters and I have done this moisture treatment on our hair. We look pretty silly with our hair all oiled up and shower caps on our heads. My husband and son just look at us like we are crazy. I guess they will never understand the things we do to look good just for them! Our hair was nice and shiny and so worth it in the end!
Here are a few more interesting things you can use coconut oil for:
-Eat a spoonful when you need an energy boost.
-Add a spoonful to your dog or cat’s food. Coconut oil is great for our furry friends!
-Use coconut oil instead of shaving cream. (Oh, Father’s Day gift?…ha!, just what all men want right?)
-Apply to bee stings or bug bites to soothe and heal the wound.
-If you’re prone to nosebleeds, coat the inside of your nostrils with coconut oil regularly.
-Take coconut oil to help reduce or eliminate migraines.
-Got gum stuck in your hair? Try using coconut oil to remove without cutting your hair.
-Use coconut oil instead of WD-40.
Below are the instructions on how to moisturize your hair. I designed this printable based off the instructions from How Does She. Scroll to the bottom to download and print.
