The problem, I read, is that coconut oil will not stand up to high heat as needed to fry.

With the very cold weather we had here a week or so ago I had a dry scalp. My body is used to humidity I guess.
The vid said to melt some and rub into your scalp/hair and leave on for an hour or so. Worked like a charm.
Nonsense. Do you watch cooking shows? EVOO.

As those Starbuck's foo foo drinks, mocha this, frappa crappa that, is all coconut oil and corn syrup and bad for you.
