Coconut oil i've read conflicting reports on the benefits or harm of coconut oil in the diet. Is non-hydrogenated okay or is any coconut oil dangerous? Guess i'm looking for further opinions.
Just : Just like everything else, there are pros and cons to taking coconut oil. Proâ€™s: it works well as a hair conditioner and as a skin moisturizer.

It sounds like it may work well for wrinkles, dry skin and split ends without detrimental impacts. ...Read more
