Coconut Oil

Where can i purchase some natural coconut oil? i've gone to the grocery stores and just couldnt find any. The only jars i've seen are online. Anyone know anywhere else i can look?
Check out my blog: kinkycurlypixie.blogspot.com
or search me on youtube: blugtar87

Phone cord curls (dont know what type). Looser in the front and on top (maybe from heat damage?)

Happy to say that I am CG!

Currently using:
Teressentials Mud Wash. (As my cleanser and conditioner)
Giovanni's Direct Leave-In.
Castor oil
Ecco styler gel
Whole Foods carries coconut oil (unrefined). Probably any organic or all-natural grocery store would carry it.
2B/Coarse/Fine but plentiful/cut in an inverted bob

Wash: TJ's Tea Tree Tingle or Nourish
Conditioner: GVP Balm (love!!)
Leave-in: Still looking for my HG!
Style: When I wear it curly (KKCC, MOPC Curling Custard, HESMU), when I wear it straight (Crisco)

Second (or third!) day hair is my goal when I wear it curly. I often look like I did my hair with an egg beater on Day 2.
I found it in a bunch of different places, mostly the non-chain grocery stores, like a lot of health food stores around me carry it, and even some of the grocery stores do carry it, but it's just not near all the other cooking oils.
Wurly, fine, thin, moderately to heavily porous. Mod CG.

I got a big tub of pure, unrefined, extra virgin coconut oil at the Vitamin Shop for around 7-8$, Ive had it for about 1.5 years and am only half way through the jar!
- 2C - Coarse Canopy & med/fine underlayers
- MOP C Hydrating 'poo
- LOreal Natures Therapy Moisturizing condish, ION Effective Care, Garnier S&S (old formula)
- treatments: CJ Curl Rehab, CJ Repair Me!
- plopping, diffusing, and clipping the roots
ok thanks everyone im goin to look for some! i hear its good for the scalp and pre-pooing and sealing.

I've heard of coconut being associated with protein for some reason- does anyone know if this is true?

Whenever I can't find something locally, I check amazon. They have lots of choices:
Amazon.com: coconut oil
Hair: tight waves to loose curls. Thick. Coarse. Dry. Natural redhead until bright white strands popped out. Color with FramColor now. Shampoo: alternate Phytojoba with Cowash: Suave coconut, Paul Brown or those that didn't work well as a conditioner. Conditioner: can't find one heavy enough. Product: Aveda Brilliant Humectant Pomade. DT: Coconut Oil
I found a 14 oz jar at Andronico's for $10.00 in the baking section.
Medium to course texture
Slightly porous
Normal elasticity
High density
i finally got some! lol thanks everyone

I wanted to send you a lil note, I use the coco oil on my face to wash all of the makeup and gunk off at the end of the day...while my water is running in the sink (hot) I rub coco oil into my skin and onto my eye makeup then take the hot rag...and place on my skin for a min...works wonderfully.

Also before I go to sleep at night I will put enough oil on my hands to rub into my hair, then bundle my hair up...and in the mornings after my routine, I put a little oil on my hands and use it to SOTC...and I swear it is contributing to my hair growing more than normal


3b....
not for sure about my other "stuff"
Still new and trying to get a routine
i finally got some! lol thanks everyone

I can't wait to try this miracle oil too!
kind of off topic, but I heard 2 table spoons of evco a day can make your metabolism faster?
