I love it! Its light and feels great on your skin. I never used it alone on my hair. I always mix it with Shea butter and many oils when I plan on using it on my hair. To me coconut oil works best mixed with other things. When I use my concoction, my hair always feels soft and its easy to detangle. I also sometime use this as a prepoo.

Love to cook with it. Can't use it straight-up in my hair...makes it greasy & crispy but it seems to work fine if it is in a production formulation.

Pee-poo with other oils only. I don't use products with it as one if the top ingredients. Makes my hair dry and crunchy.

Pre poo/protein treatment. I used to use it to seal but haven't in a long time. If I use it on dry hair it gets hard. I think that's because of the protein in it

For those of you whose hair is dry and crunchy with coconut oil: does coconut milk give you the same result?

I started moisturizing and sealing with it every two days and I think it made my hair thicker and stronger.

Coconut oil doesn't contain protein, only the milk.

Maybe depending on where you are, if you're in a cooler environment or in air conditioning a lot, it's going back to solid. Lol that's why I don't need to use a styler sometimes because it has a slight hold.

Exactly! I don't use it as a moisturizer at all, but as a soft hold curl cream. Works great in small amounts over your conditioner.

A soft hold curl cream...I like that because it's basically what I use it as . I use it on wet hair after I spritz the aloe Vera juice on.

I use unrefined coconut oil as a prepoo verrrrrrry occasionally and it's very useful for sealing my hair when I'm in a more humid climate. It's good stuff! <3

I seal with it. I love it, but I'm open to other oils too.
