Coconut oil

This Extra virgin coconut oil is excellent. It smells & tastes delicious. It goes on my sclap in my spritz and in some of my cooking. I got this from iherb.

This is a cheaper coconut oil. It has no smell. You can find it in some of the asian shops here UK. Holland and Barrat and some health shops have coconut oil but it's waaaay overpriced..

Coconut oil or better still, Extra virgin coconut oil is one of my favourite oils. The oil can nourish each strand and penetrate into the hair shaft. It softens the hair, prevents breakage and dryness. It has anti-fungal & anti-bacterial properties and adds strength and vitality to hair. It's an excellent emmollient, a rich source of fatty acids. Coconut oil can help stimulate the growth of new hair in some people. It can be used to conditon the hair. Try not to overuse as it's a heavy oil and might be solid even at room temperature. Put a little on your fingertips and massage into the scalp and down your locs. Use sparingly on the scalp. You want to nourish, not clog your scalp.
