Coconut oil mercadona hair
Coconut oil (or coconut butter) is an edible oil derived from the wick, meat and milk of the fruit of the coconut palm. Coconut oil is a white solid fat that melts at ambient temperatures of about 25°C; in warmer climates, during the summer months, it is a clear, liquid oil. Unrefined varieties have a distinct coconut aroma. It is used as a food oil and in industrial applications for the production of cosmetics and detergents. Due to its high levels of saturated fats, numerous health authorities recommend limiting its consumption as a food.
In July 2016, results of a survey in the United States showed that 72% of people believed coconut oil was healthy, but only 37% of nutritionists agreed.
The Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2015-2020 recommend limiting saturated fat intake to less than 10% of a day’s calories. This means that someone eating a 2,000-calorie-a-day diet should eat no more than 20 grams of saturated fat each day.

Above I mentioned that this coconut oil from Mercadona is also suitable for food use, although I can’t say much about it, since I have only tried it 2 or 3 times. It gives an interesting touch to dishes, but I didn’t want to try it too much lest I get too fond of it, which with coconut oil it is not recommended to overdo 😉
Actually all of the above is applicable to any extra virgin coconut oil. In this respect, Mercadona’s coconut oil is not very different from others, but there is one thing in which it certainly stands out: its practically unbeatable price: 4.5 euros for a 450ml bottle.
Carrefour coconut oil
This oil, since it became popular, has been all the rage, and it is one of those oils that once you try it, you fall in love with it. I have been an unconditional fan for quite some time, so when I found it this summer, in the supermarket that I usually go to, and until now, it was hard to find it, unless it was online, I couldn’t resist bringing it home.
About 50% of the fatty acids are lauric acid. Others are myristic, capric and caprylic acid. They all give the oil its antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties.
One of the first things that surprised me is its smell. Absolutely all the coconut oils that I had used to date, did not have a coconut smell, but this one smells really good, exactly like the coquitos that they sell for Christmas, this is also a reason to lower the price, not being a deodorized oil, it is a process that does not happen, and therefore does not influence the final price.
Coconut oil for cooking
Perhaps until now it was not very easy to find this product in the usual stores or supermarkets, but we are in luck because coconut oil has arrived at Mercadona. But don’t look for it among the cosmetics. It is located next to the oils and is sold in a 450 ml bottle. Its price? 4,50 € per jar, not bad at all!

Coconut oil is one of the best natural moisturizers we can find for skin care. The properties of coconut moisturize, soften and, incidentally, help remove dead skin cells, preventing premature aging of the skin.
To use, wet the hair and apply the coconut oil from mid-length to the ends of the hair. In other words, do not apply it to the roots of the hair. Preferably leave it on for 30 minutes and rinse with plenty of water.
