I WAS considering picking up some coconut oil and trying
some in conditioner for a dt. I'm even thinking of switching out my body lotion for coconut oil since it seems to have so many cones in it-that can't be good for my skin either. Thanks!

Any occlusives including silicones can have some benefit for skin simply by forming a barrier against harsh sulphate or other anionic surfactants in shower gel.

I went fully sulphate free a couple of years ago, my cuticles and lips are way happier without commercial toothpaste and commercial hand wash respectively.
