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.
