I use coconut oil for cooking variety of dishes like chicken curry, fish fry etc. I have been eating dishes with coconut milk or coconut oil, since I was a child. I was born in Kerala( Land of coconuts). I also apply it on my hair and skin. I massage my hair with coconut oil 2-3 times a week. It keeps the hair and also skin very healthy. If used on skin regularly, it has anti-ageing properties.
