If you have hard-to-tame curly hair, a good natural treatment is coconut oil but it can be hard to figure out which one is the best. Whether you’re looking for the best coconut oil for hair growth or something to tame static and frizz, we researched the best-selling, top-rated brands to put together this guide to help you find the right product. Here are some of the key features to keep in mind while you shop.
Organic: While a lot of these products are certified organic, a lot of them aren’t. Pay attention to the labels because, even though they’re not all organic, a lot of our picks are still 100% pure and natural.
Package Size: Packages sizes vary a lot. You’ll find balms with anywhere from 8 to 54 ounces. Yes, you read that right: 54 ounces. That’s a lot of coconut oil! Don’t worry, there are a lot of smaller sizes to choose from.
Type: Unrefined coconut oil changes form. At room temperature, it usually takes on the consistency of a balm. We also included some fractionated oils that maintain a liquid state at all times and a coconut oil blend that’s a great spray.
Cold Pressed: Cold pressed oils are generally considered the gold standard. It means that no heat was used during the extraction process. Heat can change the chemical structure of the oil and potentially alter the oil’s effectiveness.
Pieces: All of these products come as one unit, though once you find one you like, ordering in bulk is a good idea. We figured you didn’t need multiple bottles until you knew for sure you found something that you love.
Unrefined: Most of these oils are unrefined. The few that are not are our picks for fractionated oils. These products have had certain elements removed so that they can maintain a liquid shape instead of solidifying as unrefined oil does.
