You know the guy on my big fat Greek wedding who treats everything with Windex? That's me and coconut oil. Stuff works for everything! Plus I cook with it.

I'm in love with the 16 oz jar of organic virgin oil at trader joe's for about $6.

I use it for a ton of stuff cooking, dry skin, diaper rash, chap lips etc it's awesome.

I tried it for acne (oil cleansing) but found that it made things worse. Then I did some research and realized that it clogs pores. There are lists of oils that have low, medium, and high clogging probabilities and coconut is high.

I have bad dry scalp and dandruff once every other week I massage coconut oil into my scalp and leave it about an hour and then wash it out with cool water and baby shampoo because it has no chemicals in it. This instantly gets rid of my dandruff and stops my scalp from itching. It also gives the rest of my hair a nice healthy glow.

Could you be a little more specific?

I buy it at the store and I use it in my hair!

Bought it on amazon, use it for cooking, washing my face, and I started using it in my hair, I heard it helps with frizz
