Some of you may remember I posted a discussion about my hair fall problem a couple of months ago. Well, thanks to virgin coconut oil, it stopped after applying it on my scalp for two weeks. Do you also have some experience on the healing wonders of virgin coconut oil? Please share your story.

I did not know that until I read your post Jemina. I did not know about virgin coconut oil before. So far,I haven't use it. Maybe it's not that popular here. People do use olive oil, but not coconut oil. I think I can give it to my roommate as her birthday present. She has this hairfall problem but not very serious. I think I can use it too for my hair is quite dry. However, I do not know where I can buy this oil~

Not me, but my neighbor did. It's a natural and healthy supplement, I believe it does make wonders. My neighbor usu it all-over her body, she has dry skin and simply puts VCO on her skin twice a day. Then for quite some time, her skin starts to change from dry to smooth. I still haven't tried this, I just can't have enough self-dedication on this stuffs!

Well, that's nice to know. But I understand you Raijin, boy stuff. I know you are not that concern about your skin as long as it looks okay and healthy. Anyway, I'm happy to hear about your neighbor's success story upon using VCO. I just want to gather some real-life experiences how this wonder oil has helped anyone. Kind of compiling things for later reference.

Of course, it counts. It doesn't have to be your own experience as long as you have seen the result yourself, that's good enough. I'm really glad my hairfall has stopped. I really thought my hair was going to be thin. Well, the only problem now is that those hairs growing back especially on top of my head, it makes my hair look like a bird's nest. Well, it's not that bad really, I just have to put some cream to make them settle down.

There are multiple benefits of VCO and they are best for skin care. If you can find the book "The Healing Miracles of Coconut Oil" you will learn the many good uses of our own coconut oil.

I heard that coconut oil and tea tree oil will help clear my dogs skin issues up. We use it and do see a difference, but we need to be more diligent about it to make it clear up. Thanks for the reminder!

I use VCO regularly. Every Sunday I apply VCO on my hair to keep it soft and smooth since my hair has the tendency to be frizz and unmanageable. i also use VCO for a lot of things and apply them on my skin at least once a week. VCO is also good for curing minor skin irritations and infections. I have tried it and it really worked for me. VCO can do a lot of things and it has even known to help contain AIDS and help the immune system. There are lots of testemonies on its wonders. I do really believe that in nature, we could find the all cures for any diseases. It may take us a long long time to figure them out, but it is just there for the taking. There are truly wonders in nature.

I lost my hair too, Jemina. I have lost my hair when shampooing, combing. I guest i have to try this VCO. So you let this oil at your hair for 2 weeks without shampoing? Then you go outside with wet hair because that oil? or you clean it first?
@Jemina (5783)

No, you just massage the oil to your scalp 30-60 minutes before taking a shower. Otherwise your hair will get sticky and stinky too. And if you live in the tropics this oil will make you feel so hot. By two weeks I mean that's how long I used VCO before the hairfall stopped.

So when you have shower, do you use shampoo? my hair is very thin, and when it's sticky and wet because of oil, it will get more thin then when it's dry. And i have to work every day.

yes of course you have to shampoo your hair. Now avoid taking a shower and shampooing your hair every day. Make it every other day.

We used Virgin Coconut Oil on our hair and we take is as vitamins or food supplements. Coconut is very abundant in my country Philippines so we have to use it and support it since it brings us nourishment.

Yes, it smoothens my hair and leaves out dry scalp. It is safe to use everyday and my hair shines.

Ive heard that also. In fact my brother teached me how to produce virgin coconut noi. And he told me how he discovered it. His son is making a baby thesis on virgin coconut oil. It is all written on what to do. Being a father, he told his son, this is how to do it. And yes they were able to produce the virgin coconut oil thru my brother. My brother teached me how but because I got no more time i wasnt able to produce one. But thru some readings the best coconut oil are those peoduced without our bare hands touching the coconut. It should be by a machine. That I have to discovered yet.

Well, you can use gloves to avoid touching the raw materials in the process. I am interested in your nephew's thesis on virgin coconut oil.

Hi Jemina! I had the same experience like yours. Until this day, I make VCO as my hot oil, I put this on my hair, let it stay there for an hour before taking a shower, doing this twice a week and my hair has never been better. I always get compliments for my shiny straight thick hair. That is why VCO is always included in my groceries.
