It's the only oil that truly soaks into the hair-therefore, major moisture.
All the other oils condition, but never soak in, so in the end, unless you wash it out, you just have a dust attracted oily tail...
Coconut oil, my Walmart carried in the cooking oils, but you may have to order it, if your not able to find it there... Do you have an organic/health food store around? They should definitely carry it.
If it's cold out, it'll be solid, so just scoop it out, and it'll melt in your hands so just work it around until is liquid again, and just run it through the mane/tail, and let it do it's job.
The ONLY negative I've found-It's slightly dust attracting until it soaks in. What I like to do, is put it in, braid the tail and go for a ride. My arena's turf, so it's the least dusty place. The braid, keep less dust out of the tail, vs the tail being out and flowing. The mane isn't really affected, unless it's really windy, but usually the mane doesn't get dusty.
It soaks in within about 30 minutes or so.
