I read the posts about using it on your hair and face. I just had to give it a try and since it is made of soybean and cottonseed oil and contains antioxidants I didn't see what damage it could do - it is edible.
I been using it on my face over an acne product for less than a month and I've hardly had any breakouts on my face. My skin feels soft and just yesterday someone said my skin had less dark spots - I can't say it's the Crisco alone that helped the spots. I will keep using it until the weather gets warmer and then I'll switch to something lighter for my oily skin.
As for what it did to my hair I wasn't feeling it. Mainly because I followed a post that said to mix it with Eco Styler gel to make a curling pudding. It was clumpy and I believe it left white spots in my hair or something.
I normally wear my natural hair in a two strand twist with a butter or oil to seal moisture in followed by Eco Styler olive gel. I'll give the Crisco one more try on my hair, maybe this weekend. Will report back if I'm happy with the results.
