You only use a very small amount,and in the shower,put on the ends of hair,let the steam penetrate your scalp,and wash it out. My skin is very smooth and soft,since using the coconut oil.
UNREFINED. ONLY. Go organic for the cleanest, imo.
I use it in my coffee, on toast/crackers, on my dog, in his food, on my dry skin. It is the best oil to cook with.
It once got a bad rap from the Corn Oil industry. Corn. Name three things that are GOOD about that: makes cattle fat, makes people fat, is now genetically modified to make its own RoundUp fertilizer even in your intestines.
Trust me. Coconut oil is even good for BRAINS. For they NEED fat. GOOD fats. And this one is A GOOD FAT!!
