This is so cool! I don't like using Show Sheen or other brands because they are silicone based which ruins the hair. So I have been using MTG which attracts the dirt. Occasionally I will use Infusium 23 diluted with water. I am excited to try this :)

The horses are out of luck. I just brushed it into my hair and scalp. The dry wood heat does a number on my hair in the winter.

Let me know how it works in your hair. I just cooked fried potatoes with the coconut oil. It smelled really good cooking and tasted good too.


I used in my horses mane and tail. I liked the way it felt going on and brushed through. I really liked how soft my hands were after.

I found mine in the organic food section of my grocery store. It is 100% virgin coconut oil. A quart sized jar was $20. That's why I'm saying the horses are out of luck.

I put a little too much in my hair but my hair and scalped soaked a bunch of it up. Went to put the dogs out on the chain for a few and the stuff stiffened into candle wax hardness. Softened in minutes on returning inside. I braided my hair and threw a towel down on my pillow and slept with it in. By morning my scalp was not nearly as dry feeling. Rinsed the excess out in the shower. Feels so soft now.
My hair is long, down past the middle of my back and I had very little trouble brushing it out afterwards.

If you have a Super Wal*Mart close by you might check there. I had to go to a Super Wal*Mart to get the pure CO but it had it for about $5.00.

I can't wait to try it. My horse's mane is breaking right at the root. :/ I was using MGT but frankly I can't stand the smell.

This is where I got mine:

So it arrived and it's solid. I am assuming this is from the cold and it will liquefy as it warms up?? :/
