Top 5 Celebrity Mums - Uses for Coconut Oil
Our favourite celebrity Mums give us the scoop on their uses for coconut oil.
According to the UK Daily Mail, Angelina Jolie includes virgin coconut oil as part of her breakfast routine.
A source for Grazia magazine said:
“Angelina has been known to start her day with little more than a spoonful of coconut oil and a handful of cereal.”
Supermodel Miranda Kerr who is married to actor Orlando Bloom and recently became a new Mom says eating lots of coconut oil is her beauty secret and that she has been consuming it since she was 14. Of her favorite virgin coconut oil, Miranda states:
“I will not go a day without coconut oil. I personally take four tablespoons per day, either on my salads, in my cooking or in my cups of green tea.”
"Something my mom does that is kind of cool: She puts coconut oil on the ends of her hair. When you shampoo your hair, you’re trying to get the oil out of your roots, but you really want the rest of your hair to maintain its moisture. When you put coconut oil on the ends, the shampoo gets oil out of the roots, but also protects the ends." —Blake Lively, the Cut.
"I use coconut oil a lot — I do on my face, on my skin and in my cooking. And I just started oil pulling, which is when you swish coconut oil around [in your mouth] for 20 minutes, and it's supposed to be great for oral health and making your teeth white. It's supposed to clear up your skin, as well. It's really interesting; it's an ancient, ancient technique. I read about it on the Internet." —Gwyneth Paltrow, E! Online.
The reality show star includes the best quality virgin coconut oil as part of a hair mask to keep her locks shiny and gorgeous. According to StyleBistro.com, Kourtney’s recipe includes a once a month treatment of avocado, mayonnaise, egg, olive oil, castor oil and coconut oil.
