I eventually found it at my local organic supermarket, and have had mixed results so far.

Yes it goes solid and then melts in your hand, but in the winter, in Canada it can go so solid you can't get it out of the tub Went back to pink that day.

Yesterday was a beautiful day here, and I had some manes and tails to do, took the coconut oil out, came out of the tub nicely, melted in my hands, but went solid again when I ran it through the mane, guess my idea of a nice war day isn't the same as the coconut oils.

In the end I was working on a very small bit at a time, melt it in hands, rub onto section of mane then quickly braid...I'm hoping it will warm up and soak in with the sun.

Pluses so far, it makes my hands nice and soft, and I like it for my hair. I'm hoping it will work better on the horses when spring comes along.

I just let a teaspoon or so melt in my hand and rub it in. Then I brush it down to the ends. I do it on my lazy days and let it sit and soak in. Sometimes I'll throw a towel over my pillow and sleep with it in. Like I said the wood heat does a number on me. In the morning I just shower and rinse it out.

If I didn't get too crazy I won't need shampoo. Most of the excess rinses away with the heat of the shower.

I've seen a Jam sized mason jar of it at my store for 5.99. Rather expensive for an oil imo.

I really hadn't thought about some places being so cold that it would go solid again after being applied
But it makes sense.

It's so warm here most days (70's today) that we just doing think about it.

LOL, it was funny, the first bit I rubbed in my hands, then rubbed into his mane, then turned around, picked up a comb, combed his mane though and white flakes of it were popping off
