Who writes Beautiful Basics?

 My name is Kassie and I’m a chronically ill 28-year-old from a small town in Oregon. I have a passion for all things beauty and green living. I write about natural and organic beauty products as well as DIY beauty recipes and other odds and ends. I'm also an animal lover and believe beauty should be cruelty free. I'm a proud cat mommy and vegetarian.

I’m not an expert or a professional but I have learned a lot about beauty and skin care by experimenting and teaching myself. I like to keep my posts as positive as possible. I love testing out products but I only write about the ones I love. Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoy!

I also have a blog that chronicles my life living with chronic illness.

Coconut Milk Conditioner

I think I've told you how much I love coconut. Anything coconut makes me happy, which is why I'm full of joy today to be sharing a really simple DIY coconut beauty treatment. Coconut milk is rich in good fat and protein so it's perfect to use on our hair. Coconut milk makes a wonderful conditioner because of its thick, creamy consistency. Just grab a can of coconut milk (not the kind you buy to use as a dairy milk replacement), the kind you can find in the Asian section of your local grocery store, and use it just like you would a conditioner. Let it sit for a few extra minutes though to penetrate each strand. Your hair will be silky, replenished, and smell good enough to eat!

Great idea! I've been using extra virgin coconut oil on my hair (dried) and it makes it feel sooo soft & manageable!!
