Around two years ago, I was walking through Central Park when i spotted this lovely young lady with the most beautiful hair I've ever seen. After walking directly behind her for 5 minutes mesmerized by the shine and luster of her mane (yes i will become a stalker for beauty), I decided to approach her before she turned around and slugged me. So I asked her what it was she put on those beautiful locks. She advised me that she used Coconut Oil on her hair. She told me that she applied it on her hair (not too much though) used it, left it on her hair for the day and washed it out. Me being the beauty-eager woman that I am, quickly ran to Whole Foods and purchased a bottle of Spectrum Coconut Oil:
I went home and boiled some water and placed the bottle of oil inside. Coconut oil comes in a very hard consistency and the only way to turn it into a liquid is to heat it. After it was liquid, I placed it on my hair, and put my hair in a ponytail. The next morning, I trooped to my salon, they washed it out and woooooooooooooooooooh, my hair looked amazing (i think even better than the girl who gave me the suggestion). lol

They state that there have actually been scientific studies on Coconut Oil showing that it is one of the few oils that penetrate the hair and actually will make hair stronger.
I definitely have noticed the difference.
