Some studies have  shown coconut oil as having the ability to absorb deeply into the hair shaft preventing breakage, repairing and conditioning the hair. If you have dry, thick, curly, coarse hair, its imperative that you use this everytime you condition your hair, I would say it is required. I certainly dont need a study to tell me that!

Body- Supposedly, according to several sources cooking with coconut oil and even taking a spoonful a day can help promote weight loss.  coconut oil specifically virgin coconut oil, can help increase the body’s metabolic rate by removing stress on the pancreas allowing you to burn more energy thus helping you lose weight quicker.
