"I love coconut oil, it has so many uses. I actually used this in my hair, let it soak in for 30 minutes before washing out, which resulted in a smooth, glossy finish" - Kay Tilbury

Editor Sarah Reeve says: "I'm already a huge fan of coconut oil, it's my go-to remedy for almost everything from the outside in, so I was thrilled to discover Cocofina - the coconut experts.
