I use coconut oil for my thick hair which has a tendency to be dry at the ends. My hair looks better and feels better.
Also, before my grandmother passed away, she always told me the benefits of liberally applying coconut oil to the face and other body parts. She said it was good for moisturizing and hydrating the skin. I must say she looked much younger than her 91 years.
I've tried applying coconut oil to my face, but I find it too greasy for my already oily complexion.
