My mom swears by coconut oil for cooking purposes, but I can't say that she uses it enough to be able to say it's had any affect on her.
I eat a tsp or 2 a day because it's supposed to be good for your metabolism/energy levels. I will say it gives me more energy before my cardio. I try to take it in the morning with tea and cereal because if I take it later at night it keeps me up. I've only been consuming it for a few months though. I came upon the same research you did I think when I was googling coconut oil and hair when I first started the CG method. I use it to cook my curries sometimes and it's delicious.
