So I first started using this a year or two ago to combat my dry, flaking skin. It was a miracle product for me, fixed my face from the damage and rashes caused by overusing retinoids, benzoyl peroxide, the works. I've been suffering from some skin issues lately, and it's essential that I fix them, so I stopped using all other moisturizers (anything with fragrance, parabens, and sulfates can be irritating and dangerous) and I've developed a particular technique for soft, amazing skin: Take a short shower (under three minutes, if possible, otherwise you'll strip your skin), wash with a gentle cleanser (I use african black soap on my face and body), tie your hair up into a bun and immediately apply coconut oil to your face, neck, and body while you're still dripping wet. This will lock in the moisture and reduce or eliminate the need to even use a towel at all, you can just airdry like that. For hygiene reasons, it's best to keep a spoon or something with your jar to spoon out the oil, rather than putting your bacteria-ridden fingers into the jar. I use it three times a day: a small amount on a wet face in the morning, before my nightly shower to remove my makeup, and after my shower on my whole body. You can also mix it with sugar to create a great and all-natural affordable body scrub! A list of some uses include:1. Facial & Body Moisturizer2. Makeup Remover3. Gentle Face Wash4. Body Scrub (with sugar)5. Massage Oil6. Healthy Alternative to Butter (I melt it and mix it into my hot chocolate -- amazing!)7. Deep Conditioner (Leave in overnight -- wash out with clarifying shampoo)It truly is a miracle product: it's anti-fungal, anti-microbial, extremely healthy, very safe to use and gentle for every part of your body, all-natural, and it has a wonderful subtle sweet smell.10/10 will always re-buy! My favorite brand is on Amazon, called Cosmetics Derigueur Premium Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. It works extremely well and melts right in your hands!

I buy the tub found in the medicine aisle, Natures Way. Put it on the ends of my hair 3x a week, rub the remainder onto my scalp. Makes hair super shiny and smooth without weighing it down. Smells yum too!

Ok I have oily skin and this does NOT work, maybe it works for dry skin? But one things for sure it 100% does not work on oily skin. It feels rank, slimy and greasy and when I wash my face it's still all stuck on there, and will not budge at all. Even when I use a normal cleanser to try and get rid of the grease it does not move at all. I bought the unrefined virgin coconut oil from woolies and it has sat in my bedroom for like 3 months im thinking of either chucking it in the bin or palming it off onto some poor unwilling victim. Will not buy again.

I have been using organic unrefined virgin coconut oil (across two brands/jars) as a sugar facial cleanser/scrub as well as moisturiser (mixed with lavender oil) for some months now, and it's done me quite well so far - but not spectacularly, which is slightly disappointing considering all the hype about the wonders of coconut oil. - Improved general appearance of skin, but them blackheads tho:It is a very decent cleanser (no soap! totes amaze) and does its job in ridding sebum, dirt, etc. I have gotten to enjoy some periods of good days when my skin was visibly clear. Unfortunately, I'd still have some noteable blackheads around my nose which I'd have to intentionally scrub away and prevent with lemon baking soda. I wish coconut oil could just help with it all, but the potential of coconut oil clogging your pores might be the issue here.- Super greasy skin no more!:I used to have very oily skin, but coconut oil has zapped away the grease by providing enough moisture. However, I have been left with one or two dry patches which coconut oil cannot exactly remedy (dryness likely caused by tea tree oil or ACV). And watch the amount of coconut oil you put on your face - it is very true that a little of this stuff goes a long way, as an excessive amount can leave your face unnecessarily oily (coconut oily) and clog your pores. - Not exactly the miracle acne-zapper (external use): I have light-medium acne and tend to break out hormonally. Unfortunately, CO has done nothing for my hormonal acne and I've curiously had breakouts on my jaw/neck area. Perhaps it's the way I cleanse and wash my face & how greasy my hair can get. And truth be told, there have been days when I fell lazy and did not wash my face (it doesn't help that my face doesn't get oily anymore, ironically thanks to coconut oil!), so that could definitely be a factor. I am also not faithful with daily oil pulling, and only occasionally take coconut oil internally.All in all, it's good enough for me to be content with using it, and not to mention the many uses coconut oil can offer beyond facial skin care! While I would still be happy to recommend it to others, I am currently contemplating trying other oils which might work better for my skin (or jaw/neck, in my case?).

I see what all the hype is about! Finally bought a jar, and used it as a hair mask so far, and it's made a huge improvement!

HOLY GRAIL product I use it for a number of things I use it on my hair, I also mix it in with my conditioner for deep conditioning it can feel heavy on the hair though especially if you have fine hair like I do and like to stretch out the time between washes I have very long hair (waist length) and frequent washing causes breakage for me but it really does add shine to dark hair and makes hair thicker. Because of its antibacterial properties its excellent as shaving cream and prevents ingrown hairs. I also slap some coconut oil all over my body before I exfoliate my skin. I tried using this as a make up remover at first it made my skin so soft and it was wonderful because it even removes water proof mascara but within a week it clogged my pores and I broke out :( still a great product though just don't use it on my face or neck because of acne. I have gone through countless jars of it and will never be without itupdate coconut oil started to make my hair feel like straw apparently its supposed stop protein loss in hair well my hair was getting crunchy from too much protein this exasperated the problem.it doesn't moisturise my body skin much and gives my face skin acne strange story but Iv used this to get rid of a bad case of thrush nothing else worked!! sorry if this is TMI but I just put a scoop of coconut oil inside of down there literally the next day the itchiness was gone. Coconut oil is suppose to have great anti bacterial properties.I have a sneaking suspicion that my eczema hasn't resurfaced in over 12 months because I use this constantly.how i use it now is I mix it in with other oils and shea butter to create a lotion consistency this works on my skin and hair really well.

LOVE LOVE LOVE. I purchased a huge jar of this at costco for only $20, and it lasts forever. The main reason I bought mine is for my dry hair, I warm up a small amount in the microwave then put it in my dry hair and sleep with it in overnight, when I rinse it out in the morning my hair not only smells fantastic but is so soft and visibly better looking. The great thing about this is that it has hundreds of uses. I will never go without this product again!

Hair Review: Better than any deep conditioning mask you can buy! Put it on your hair and wait all day to wash out, or sleep with it in (with a plastic cap obviously) and shampoo it out in the morning, makes an amazing difference in your hair and is the BEST oil for hair.Skin review: Horrible, makes me break out, feels oily and disgusting!
