7 Reasons to Travel with Coconut Oil

You needn't abandon healthy habits just because you're away from home. Carry your commitment to supreme self-care with you by packing a jar of coconut oil. Here are just a few ways you can use the very versatile oil to treat your body right on the road.

1. Shaving cream
My personal research has uncovered that wishing leg and armpit hair won't grow during vacations doesn't work. (Le sigh.) Fortunately, rubbing coconut oil onto wet skin before shaving makes the experience a pleasure and leaves skin feeling extra silky. Who needs shaving cream!

2. Hair Conditioner
Hotel toiletries are always a drag. Not only are they usually full of yucky synthetic chemicals, they generally suck too. I love using coconut oil as a deep conditioner. I comb it through damp hair, put on a complimentary shower cap, and let it work it's magic for 10-30 minutes. Afterwards I wash my hair. (Forgot to pack healthy shampoo? Use baking soda.) I also use coconut oil as a leave-in conditioner, but I don't recommend that use for folks with oily or thin hair.
