I have heard of the benefits of coconut oil so I want to try it on my hair. Any tips on how to use it, do you use it on dry or wet hair? I have seen loads of videos on Youtube...any recommendations...thanks!

I'd like to know too! My friend gave me a jar of it and I want to do something with it. But I've heard something about not using it in the winter time (if you live in cold areas) because it'll solidify.

i use it on dry hair as a prepoo. i put it on and sleep with it overnight.  i don't use it as my regular oil b/c i am one of those people whose hair gets rough from using coconut oil on it.  i do love the stuff though..but i don't use it on my hair if i am going out b/c i will look like who dun it and ran!  i use jojoba or jbco for that.

It's been in the 20s-30s where I live lately and I recently decided to try coconut oil.
I too bought it in that buttered form but I used my hair dryer to melt I down and combined the oil with evoo and grapeseed oil, and a lil bit of some carols daughter antibreakage oil.

So far it's still liquid and the majority of the oil coconut.

I'm just starting out w/ my hair journey and finding my staples, I use this at night on my ends when I wrap and as a body oil.

I use it as a pre-poo also.  Basically the day before I shampoo my hair, I slather some coconut oil on my hair, wear a plastic cap, and go to bed, in the morning or afternoon I shampoo as normal.
