Coconut oil is the best! It's so great for the hair as a leave-in conditioner and a sealant. It's great for hair, skin, and even to cook with! As many others have stated, you just have to be careful not to use too much. I find it easier to apply when it's in a liquid state, but it liquefies at a fairly high temperature (76 degrees F). It's also great for massaging scars to lessen scarring. Coconut oil is one of those few things with about a million uses, and is great to have on hand at all time.
