CO is a solid and you take about a table spoon and put it in your hand and rub it together until it melts in your hands. Then rub it into a section at a time. I rub it completely in and then braid their hair.

Good luck!

I haven't used it in Dancers tail yet, but I used in my own hair today before I showered and now it feels and looks really nice. It doesn't look oily even though I am blonde (looks greasy easily) and came out with one shampoo.
I get it in a 1/2 gallon tub from a local health food store, so not much help for you there.
Has anybody had any issues with it solidifying in the winter cold? It's currently 20F here and I want to know if it will make white chunks in the tail.

You can also buy bulk coconut oil from soap-making supply dealers. I've got a big 7 lb jar that I paid about 20 bucks for a while back and I use it for everything.

I love it. I use it as moisutirzer for my dogs (hairless Chinese crested's) skin, on my hair and on my horses mane and tail. It does solidify in the cold however, if you just keep rubbing it in your hands until all the white is gone you wont get chunks. It melts very nicely and isnt greasy. Just wonderful stuff :)

There is a great recipe for horse mane and tail conditioner. You use Fractionated Coconut Oil. Witch Hazel and Glyerine. Best horse conditioner I have ever used!!!!
