hair, skin, it cleared up my bay's acne, its wonderful. Its also good for dandruff.

Depending on the brand you may have to warm the bottle before the oil comes out, the kind we buy becomes solid at temps below 75 degrees.

OMG FOREAL!?  Cocounut oil is like the all purpose product...You can cook with it in place of whatever oil u may use no.  You can use it as a beauty product, its chapstick, conditioner, lotion etc.  Its amazing : )

 I use it as a deep conditioning treatment for my hair, and for our skin. DD has really dry skin in the winter and it is the only thing that works. You need to be careful what you by though. We get organic, but the first time I bought some it was Louann(sp?) all natural. Well it looked yellow and smelled like butter,lol. I learned my lesson though.

Coconut oil and sugar make a great body scrub. And you don't care if you accidentally get it on your mouth.
