    Hope I'm not a bother.

    All depends on your hair type and how thoroughly you wash it out!

    What is your hair type?

    Did you try this in hot or cold weather?

    That was nice to know, growing a beard down there to make up for the bum fluff on your chin?
    of course it smoothens out the bush to feather like feel.

    LOL

    It's very unlikely to help. It's action is to preserve the integrity of the hair you already have. It has a mild anti microbial action and a mild anti inflammatory action that may slightly help you to keep your hair if you had such problems.

    Do you have a suspicion as to the root of it? No, I wouldn't recommend coconut oil on it's own for your problem.

    Do you think it's inherited? Have you tried minoxidil? A gp could maybe prescribe it as it's a bit expensive when branded Rogaine.

    Yes, the night before i shower. Coconut oil is AMAZING. I would recommend it to everyone. If i wash my hair without massaging it with coconut oil, my hair looks dry and ugly. As a kid, I barely had any hair but it's been around 5 years since I started using coconut oil. My hair is so thick and volumous now and I even get compliments.

    you need to have patience and do it the night before you wash your hair. keep on doing it and it will definitely make a difference. I wash my hair about 2/3 times a week and i always massage it the night before.

    My mum threw out the cooking oil and now uses coconut oil. It's less smelly especially when doing a fry up. I also use it for my hair. I love it.

    No harm in using something like coconut oil to make your existing hair as healthy as possible. Take all the tests you are offered to establish the underlying condition and focus on diet and lifestyle in the meantime. Best of luck with this. I know what it's like to lose a lot of hair from stress so I really feel for you. Also don't wear any hairstyles that put stress on the scalp and look into silk/satin pillowcases. Stop brushing it if you can.

    It's likely to grow back I think given the wide range of reasons that could be causing it. Have you had your thyroid tested?

    What's "oil pulling?"
    you swish the oil around in your mouth and it gets rid of the bacteria in a morning and can whiten your teeth

    My friend constantly raves about it and I keep meaning to use it for my broken and damaged hair but never getting round to it. Is it as good as people insist it is?

    I 'm a little obsessed with it at the moment!

    They are currently selling the cold-pressed variety at Aldi for just £2.99

    Did a little review here:- http://teddybearpaws1.blogspot.co.uk...l-for-299.html

    My hair is really broken and damaged from bleach so I love using it as an overnight masque and I love making chocolate with it !

    does the Alidi stuff work just as good as the expensive stuff? I usually buy mine from Holland and Barrett, and even on offer its somewhere in the reigion og £20 for a big jar.

    I love using it on my curly hair, especially if it feels brittle from straightening it
