After our Hong Kong trip, I felt that my hair needed a new look. I saw a lot of girls wore grey or ash blonde hair and it looked amazing on Asian skin, so I thought of giving it a go.
As soon as we got home, I purchased everything I needed – bleach, toner, hair dye. I was pretty confident that my hair would be able to take in the amount of bleach I needed to achieve the granny hair without getting all damaged.
But, I was wrong. So, so, wrong.
With all the products and the process my hair went through, it sucked up all the moisture and nutrients and left my hair begging for help.
So, I quickly searched for the best hair mask to restore moisture and Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) happened to be on top of the list. This was the time that I got addicted to VCO (until now, just so you know). The smell of coconut is so therapeutic to me. It did wonders and I saw how it gradually restored moisture on my hair. Days after, I started applying it on my body. I would walk around smelling like latik but, who cares.
Just in time, something came in the mail. It was Jergens’ new Hydrating Coconut Dry Skin Moisturiser. Boy, I must say, it was surprisingly non-sticky compared to other Jergens products. As soon as I applied it on my arm and massaged for seconds, it left my arm feeling refreshed, moisturised, and most importantly, smelling like coconut without the sticky feeling.
Coconut is heaven-sent. From the fruit itself, to its water and oil, its benefits are outstanding. Jergens Hydrating Coconut Moisturiser has both coconut water and coconut oil. Coconut water is known to contain electrolytes and the coconut oil, as mentioned, is packed with hydrating nutrients.
Since VCO is pure oil, the greasy feeling isn’t for everyone. If you’re looking for the best alternative to coconut oil that would do the same job, you can never go wrong with Jergens Hydrating Coconut Moisturiser. It sure calms, smooths, and hydrates just about anything.
