I previously brought holland and Barrett's but it seems to have doubled in price since I last brought it as I am sure I only paid £7 for it. Can anyone recommend an alternaltive.

Waitrose sell it for cooking much cheaper than that, but it is still pure coconut oil.

Almond oil is a good moisturiser too.

Is almond oil good for hair too?

Not sure, argan oil is fantastic though - sorted out my very tangled mop (hairdresser commented on condition the other day).

The one I buy is 'Groovy Food organic, virgin coconut oil' from the grocery section at Waitrose. It's cold pressed so there is absolutely nothing else added (I've just checked the label!) £6 or £7 for a 283 ml jar. I've also seen it in Sainsbury's - or something very similar. I use almond oil as a cleanser and moisturiser too well but I haven't tried it on my hair

I use the Lucy Bee raw virgin coconut oil from Sainsbury's. About £6 a jar and smells fab, far better than the stuff I used to get in Waitrose. (Could that be the most middle class sentence I have ever written?)

I use biona raw organic stuff from ocado.

What do you use it for? I use it as a body moisturiser but not yet been brave enough to try it on my hair....should I??

I want to use it for my hair and skin and maybe oil pulling although I'm not too sure of the latter
