Ok so I'm fairly new to the coconut oil trend but am converted for cooking and now want to find out how it can be used for beauty. Initially I bought a jar of refined coconut oil (not virgin) as I didn't really know the difference but have since moved onto virgin oil. The small amount I had left from the original jar I put in a bottle to try on my skin. So far I've only tried it on my legs in the shower and on my hair. Both not successful. My legs were really dry and the oil just seemed to sit on the skin rather than be absorbed at all and my hair just became very greasy when dry.
So is it just because I'm using non virgin oil? Or is this what normally happens and I need to use it differently, ie on dry skin and hair??
