      I am so glad I watched this! I was at the store today, thinking about trying it and then put it back on the shelf since I didn’t really know much about using it. Glad you added in that info about the cold climates ’cause it’s November in New England and definitely didn’t know it could solidify. Thanks.

      Interesting, I love Coconut oil but I have to becareful using it, because I have seborrheic dermatitis, and since it is high in fat content it is fuel to the fire! So with my TWA, if I let it get to my scalp, all hell is going to break loose! This is most oils, but Coconut oil will take me to meet the devil!! lmaoo! & after 12yrs being natural, I am more attentive to my hair needs, and being patient until it grows out. (Oh wow you hair is lovely, I love those curls!)

      Thanks for shedding light on this. I am protein sensitive, and that is why I cannot use coconut oil in my hair. I get that wayyyy toooo tough hair result. I wish I could though, it works great in a few of my friends’ hair. It is great for the body though. There are many who do not realize that too much protein can do this. I have used it though diluted with glycerin as a finishing spritz in warm weather, you are right, the sheen is great. Smile.

      This was very informative. I use coconut oil as a pre-poo and on my skin (the areas prone to stretching). That’s it.
