Finally I managed to purchase some coconut oil!
The only oil I could get my hands on in the shops were "coconut oil"- not virgin nor organic just cheap. In order for this to be beneficial for hair I think it is important to purchase organic, virgin coconut oil. I managed to buy this from Whole Foods for just under £9. Whole Foods also sell Jason shampoo and conditioners, Giovanni products and other oils (grapseed, hemp seed, flaxseed, olive etc). So I may be back there soon- I really would like to use all natural products on my hair. I plan to use coconut oil to moisturise my hair (I know it is used to seal but I prefer to moisturise or seal with 1 product) every other day. Here are some posts from BGLH on the uses and benefits of coconut oil, here and here. This is part of my overall plan to improve my hair health and I will be posting an update or a post about my regimen soon!
