I bought Softee coconut oil and have a question

This tub says pure coconut oil so I bought it. When I got home I read the ingredients and here they are:
petrolatum, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, paraffin, mineral oil, fragrance, BHT.

My question is is there an actual pure coconut oil or is this as close as it gets? I got it in the ethinic isle. I used it but didn't much like it so I thought maybe I bought the wrong product. I was looking for coconut oil.

I still use Tresemme Fine Mist hairspray for the side swept bangs...I can't live without it!
Curl Genie: Medium-fine texture, normal porosity, low elasticity, medium density
Is this what you bought?

I don't think that's really coconut oil. It's probably petrolatum with a little bit of the other stuff added. Most people find their real coconut oil in the food/baking section of the store rather than in the hair care aisle.
Sort of CG sometimes, but not really
2B, medium? normal porosity and elasticity?

Cleansers -
Suave Clarifying, Philosophy Happy Birthday Beautiful

Stylers - BRHG, re:coil, Ion Hairspray

I live in the NYC area.


Buy the coconut oil in the "health food" section of a grocery store or in a health food store or ethnic food store. That will be just plain (or virgin or organic etc.), edible coconut oil.
The one you've got might be great for chapped hands and feet overnight, or to melt and mix with sugar to scrub your skin prior to showering for super-soft, exfoliated skin.

Is it pretty cheap? Well... Not like soybean oil. Maybe closer to a good olive oil in price. It's not outrageously expensive. But you're only going to use a tiny bit at a time, so it should last a long while.

I live in the middle of nowhere USA and my walmart doesn't have it, but my grocery store does. I've read some walmarts keep coconut oil by the vitamins and some have it with the cooking oil.

Thanks!

Love your new avi. I didn't know your hair was so long. And being that long, it still has bouncy and pretty curls. Love it.

Thank you so much for the compliment!!! I got pretty good second day hair today also (that pic was from yesterday) Who knows what it will look like tomorrow in the wonderful world of curly!!!

My middle of nowhere supermarket sometimes has it in with the regular cooking oils and had it with the popcorn for a while. Not all my supermarkets have it.
Drugstore.com has it. They have free shipping on your first order of 25$. Amazon.com has some with free shipping if you spend 25$
