About Tropical Traditions
“When I first read about the wonderful benefits of coconut oil, I asked my wife Marianita, who grew up on a coconut plantation in the Philippines, if there was a more natural way to extract the oil from the coconut, so that we didn’t have to buy the refined coconut oils found in all the stores in the Philippines. She said there was a method the older generation used to extract the oil by grating the fresh coconut, extracting the coconut milk, and then letting the coconut milk stand in a covered container for about 24 hours. After about 24 hours, the oil naturally separates from the water producing a crystal clear oil that retains the full scent and taste of coconuts. So we started making our coconut oil that way and using it for our cooking needs with our three children. We couldn’t believe how wonderful it tasted, and how great we felt. We had been living on Mt. Banahaw in the Philippines for almost two years by that time, and in the year 2000 telephone service was provided to our rural farming community, allowing me to put up a website about our Philippine Herbs. I decided to also put our Virgin Coconut Oil up on the website, not really expecting people to order it because it was a bit expensive since we had to hire people to make the oil, and shipping cost a lot because of the weight. We were so surprised when people started ordering, and then re-ordering it because they felt so great after using it! They told us there was no other coconut oil like it on the market. (See a sample of testimonies.)“
For my review, I received a jar of Tropical Traditions‘ Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil Hair Treatment. My hair is in major need of rejuvenation, and I thought this would be perfect to try out. Since bleaching my hair numerous times during the summer, my hair has lost volume and length…and well as health. All I strive for is to get it back to the condition that it was previously.
What I did was rub it into my hair and scalp for approximately 30 minutes before I took a shower. I then rinsed it out during my shower, and I immediately noticed the effects this hair treatment had on my hair! My hair was ridiculously softer and smoother. I thought, maybe it’s just because my hair is wet. However, after my hair was dried off…it was STILL soft and smooth!!
You can also use this as a hair conditioner! Just rub it into the ends of your hair after washing (while it is still wet). Apply as needed and work towards the scalp. It can also be used as a pre-wash hair treatment applying just before showering.
This hair treatment has a slightly higher amount of protein than Tropical Traditions other coconut oils, due to the presence of coconut solids. This Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is a truly unrefined coconut oil. This coconut oil is made on Mt. Banahaw and surrounding areas from organic coconuts.
You can purchase a 1pint jar of Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil Hair Treatment for $19.95!
