Coconut Oil, Cold Weather and Pilgrim’s Hair and Beard Tonic

November 01, 2016

Coconut oil benefits

Coconut oil is a popular ingredient that is used in many natural hair products. Among its many positive qualities it can penetrate hair better than other oils and is an excellent moisturizer. As an added bonus it prevents protein loss and smells INCREDIBLE.

Unrefined (aka “virgin”) coconut oil, has a melting point of just 76 degrees F (24 C). 
This means it can be liquid or solid depending on the season, climate and even the temperature of where its stored in your home.


Every fat and fatty acid has a range of temperatures varying from liquid to solid. As a general rule, saturated fats like coconut oils congeal at higher temperatures than unsaturated fats. 



The development of coconut oil “grains” or crystals is determined by the melting point of the oil and the environment in which it is stored. We know this can be a little disconcerting at first but please remember your oil is perfectly good.


Pilgrim’s Classic Hair and Beard Tonic is enriched with nutrients of organic coconut, argan, jojoba and avocado oils, and will change consistency with colder weather. You might notice your oil has a different texture (don’t worry), your product hasn't gone bad and there is a simple way fix for this



1. Immerse the bottle in warm water for 5 minutes until normal consistency returns.



2. Have a radiator or other indirect heat source? Awesome! Simply place your bottle on top or in front of it for a few minutes and your Pilgrim's will return to a liquid state.



3.
You can also warm
 the bottle with your hands although this might take a little longer.

And Finally, keep your Pilgrim’s Hair and Beard Tonic in a warm, dry area.
