I love using coconut oil on my hair as a detangler and as a moisturizer.  I also use it on my dogs coat to keep it shiny.  Check out all of the wonderful benefits that I learned about coconut oil.  http://www.barbaranaturallyspeaking.com/2015/07/the-benefits-of-coconut-oil-for-humans.html   Are there any other dog lovers out there that use coconut oil on your hair and to benefit your dog?
