Superdrug coconut oil | review

So I did it, I finally caved into the coconut oil hype. Though I have a confession to make, I bloody hate the smell of coconut. Shocking I know, everyone loves it. 

When I was hunting for some coconut oil, there were so many different types but they were all a little pricey for my liking. I just wanted something to put on my hair that would help with the dry ends. 

I was reading a blog recently (for the life of me I can't remember who it was now otherwise I would link to it) and they wrote a review on this Superdrug product...

It was only £2.29 but this product isn't 100% coconut oil, it also has Parfum and Coumarin. But to be honest I don't mind, because I'm only using it on my hair and maybe some dry skin patches. I'd never do the whole "oil pulling" thing so it didn't matter to me that it wasn't 100% natural because I wasn't gonna eat it anyway.

I read the back and this product can be used for a moisturiser on your skin, can be used for very dry hair and for a dry scalp. 

I must admit it was a little weird because at room temp it's completely solid but only when you start rubbing it between you hands does it melt. 

I completely coated my ends in the oil, running it through with my hands and actually the smell wasn't too over powering. 

I left it overnight to let it fully work it's magic. What I did notice though was how smooth my hands felt after applying it. Really amazing!! I don't even have dry hands but they felt even softer. 

The results
I am really impressed with this product, it took some time to wash out because of it's oily texture but after I dried my hair it feels amazing so soft. It's no longer frizzy. It looks so much better than before, and the scent lingers a little which actually is quite pleasant. 

I absolutely love it and would recommend it to anyone with dry hair.  

Have you tried coconut oil?


  1. I haven't tried any coconut oil stuff yet, so I think I'll maybe try this one out. X

    1. You definitely should!! Plus it's a reasonable price from Superdrug, my hair really is soft today! I'm quite impressed!!xx

  2. My hair has been SO dry and brittle lately. I've bought so many masks and I get regular cuts, maybe I just need to try this out! Thanks for this post :)

    1. Yeah definitely try this out! Obviously it can't work miracles I'll still have to get my hair cut but after using this my hair feels really nourished!! Thanks for reading!! :)
