Coconut Oil: The Secret To Model-Like Hair and Skin?

Ford Models has been uploading videos of its models to the Web, and I get such a kick out of seeing what the models have to say. I'll be honest: Some of them have that (unintentional?) I'm-so-beautiful thing going on, and the last thing I need is to see a bikini model prancing around in a fitting room. With that said, though, some of the videos are really fun. This one features Shana, a Costa Rican model who incorporates coconut oil into her beauty routine. Check it out:

Of course, having genetic gifts doesn't hurt, either...

Coconut oil does wonders! I flat-iron my hair regularly, but I get countless compliments on my shiny, healthy hair. I massage it in once a week as a deep conditioner; it's easily as good as or better than any pricey, high end hair mask.

yeah I've been using this for a while usually after i wash my hair and i want it to recover fast and not be dry. it works great. i got it in a little glass jar like that as well but i melted it and put it in a spray bottle that way its easier to apply in my hair or skin. i don't put it on my face though. from the neck down actually. Ooh and i love that my boyfriend loves the smell it brings him closer lol.

I like it in hair products and on my legs, but I strictly avoid putting it on my face ever since reading that it can cause breakouts in The Skin Type Solution. I swear by that book, it's made such a huge difference in my skin. I'm so thankful for how my skin looks now that I'm too scared to go against anything it says!

I loooooove coconut oil. It tastes good in food and works wonders for my dry, frizzy wavy hair. :) I actually find it kind of drying on my skin, though.

I use a coconut oil by Dabur Vatika. I love to rub it into my hair, the scent is yummy and my scalp gets a nice massage.

It is really good for both...doesn't help with sun protection, but it locks in moisture, it seems heavenly, and you can get a large jar at Whole Foods or Trader Joes for less than $15. It lasts me, my husband, and my son a good three months.

I buy containers of it at the health food store that are meant for cooking. It works amazingly well and smells a little like toasted coconut. I'm a big fan.

Fashionstar, good point. I actually think she's a wrong to think that coconut oil protects your skin from the sun. It doesn't—only SPF can do that. But as Ashcwebb says, it *is* really softening and lovely on skin. And I agree with the rest of you, this girl is adorable and stunning at the same time. Her hair is amazing — so voluminous and pretty. She reminds me of the kind of girl you'd be intimidated by at first, but then you talk with her and think, "Aw! She's down-to-earth!"

I agree PJ! Gorgeous & cuteness in one. I use products with sunflower oil in it, it works good but it smells kinda weird. Coconut oil sounds way better.

Oh my, she's beautiful & adorable all at the same time! I might try this on my skin. I currently use Neutrogena Sesame Oil, in the winter time. I put it on right before I get out of the shower. I'm sure the coconut oil will smell yummy & cost less.

While I was in Fiji I was introduced to cocunut oil and it really does make your skin soft and your locks all nice and I HIGHLY recommend it!

I just don't get how something that helps you get a tan can also protect your skin from the sun? I've heard other people talking about using it on their hair, so I'd be down to try it on my locks.
