You know how they say you can use coconut oil for everything? Come and see Amrikan wonder!
Today, Saturday, is skincare and pampering day. I started out with my hair! Washed with my Shea Moisture JBCO Shampoo and applied my Shea Moisture JBCO Masque all over my hair. – I talked about them here.

- Exfoliate – i used St. Ives Apricot Scrub (forever bae). Scrubbed all over the leg and rinsed off!
- Apply Coconut Oil – take a naiz helping of coconut oil (not too much biko, it is costly), apply all over the area to be shaved. Work it into the skin properly.
- Shave – Use shaving stick to remove the hair. I go against the grain when I shave i.e. In the opposite direction from where my hair grows. i.e. Upward strokes.
