I have yet to smell coconut in coconut oil. I bought some organic from a whole food store, no smell. So Lou Ana coconut oil, no smell. I would like to find a coconut oil with the natural scent. That would be awesome

Side Note: Vitamin Shoppe currently has their brand of the 15oz coconut oil on sale for $7.99 here. (It is unrefined.) I just bought two jars last night at my local store.

I've tried many kinda... My favorite so far has been nutiva organic extra virgin coconut oil. It has a great subtle coconut scent, it is cold pressed, not refined, deodorized or bleached! Watch out for a lot of coconut oils! If they don't specifically say that they are unrefined or unbleached, then they are! If it is refined and not cold pressed, the coconut oil was processed at high heats which may have destroyed the beneficial properties.

I swear by Vatika Oil. I mix this with other oils as well. It has been said that Jamaican Black Castor Oil helps hair to grow. If anything, it's good for your scalp. I mix it with other oils and apply it to my scalp during the winter. Works wonders!

Has anyone here tried Henna Sooq's Cocoveda Oil? I think it's like a homemade vatika oil. Any thoughts?

The Cocoveda smells amazing, so I treat myself from time
to time. Other than that, it's pricey and the quantity is small compared to regular coconut oil.
