ive heard alot of that kind of stuff about coconut oil. Im protein sensitive, so i have to watch what i put in my hair, i also have a massive collection of oils that i use for my hair/body/face. out of all my oils, coconut oil seems to be the best for my hair. i really like n use other lighter oils, but coconut oil seems to be different. i think it just seals the protein in or somthing, im not quiet sure, i can use it really well, but other curlies who are protein sensitive cant use it.
