I really think the unrefined is much better than refined. I've tried LuAna brand coconut oil (refined) but it made my hair stringy and gunky. I just bought some virgin unrefined and it felt sooooo much better, plus the smell is to die for! I want to eat the whole jar! So, look for smell

SaraNoH,
How exactly do you use your coconut oil? I recently bought some (unrefined, virgin). I haven't attempted to use it yet (mainly bc I'm a PJ and I have so many other combos I'm trying out). Do you just scoop it out of the jar? Put the whole jar in hot water like the jar says to make it "oil" instead of being solid?

- coconut oil melts in warmer temperatures . so now it may be hard ; but it melts easily ; especially in the summer .

Default Not sure about coconut oil

3b/corkielli, thin/fine here. Its spring time here in Michigan, and I have been using coconut oil for about 1 month now. I have put it on my hair wet, but for me it seems to work better dry. Not 100% sold in coconut oil, I may put it away and try it again in the winter. Any other suggestions for an oil that is a sealer to keep down on the minimal frizz?


co-wash
LA looks gel
Shea moisture souffle
Tiny bit of hand lotion(shhh)

Twister: Castor oil is a good sealer and you don't need to use much. I like Shea oil also.
