I agree with all of this. 

I also made the mistake of buying normal coconut oil. It lacked a scent and didn't do much at all for me.

Now I use organic evco and my hair and skin loves it. I use it as a moisturizer after washing my face, on my scalp, on my hair. It has a very strong scent, but doesn't last much. It will enhance the nutty smell if mixed with shea butter, which I also use it for. I like to put some of it in a separate bottle and use that to heat under running warm water before using. It's easier to use/apply than the original jar, since it solidifies all the time, and I don't like being heavy handed.

I can guarantee it's 100% pure and there was no hidden things added or over processing so i'd say the stronger the smell the better

Thanks! So far so good, I've been using it on my hair daily, and my skin. 

I noticed that after my cowash and DC yesterday, all I put on my slightly wet hair was the virgin coconut oil, and today my hair still feels moisturized. I've gone the whole day with out putting a single thing in my hair. My braids were smoother too, and the hair retained the pattern from it much better.

I bought some virgin coconut oil from the grocery store, it's suitable for skin and hair as well cooking. 

One thing I noticed was that it was far whiter than other coconut oil I'd purchase before, which wasn't virgin. 
Also, the smell. This virgin one smells strongly like coconuts, the other one smelled nothing like coconuts. 

Is this a sign that it's better quality? I just want to be sure.
