Coconut oil solidifies at around 76oF. To melt the oil, simply place the bottle in a jar filled with hot water. In a few minutes, the oil will be fluid again.
AS A TANNING OIL - Apply generously 10-15 minutes before sun exposure. Repeat as needed.
WARNING: This product does not contain any sunscreen and will not prevent sunburn. Use caution and limit the amount of time exposed to sun or tanning beds. Repeated and prolonged sun exposure or indoor tanning can increase skin aging and the risk for developing skin cancer. Avoid sun bathing between 10am and 4pm.
AS A MOISTURIZING OIL - Apply liberally after a warm shower while skin is still wet. Pat dry with towel. Your skin will feel soft and moisturized all day.
FOR YOUR DRY OR FRIZZY HAIR - Pour a little COCCO in the palm of your hands, and heat it up in your palms. Grab sections of your hair, and apply the coconut oil through evenly. A little goes a long way! The idea is to coat your hair with a little oil, rather than wet the hair. Don’t apply it to your scalp unless your hair really needs the extra nourishment. Comb your hair with a wide-tooth comb. Wrap it in a bun, or a tight braid, and let the heat of the summer just help absorb it. The longer you leave it in, the better. You'll love the beach smell and the natural beach-wave look. Not going out in the sun or no heat in your city? Then use a shower-cap around your house or blow-dryer if you want to speed up the process. After a few hours, shampoo with a mild natural shampoo. You'll love how soft and manageable your hair feels.

Once the desired color is achieved decrease your sun exposure to 2-3 days a week.
