Product Review/Giveaway: Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil (CLOSED)

Pin It
Hey all,


So, most of you know that I've never been the biggest Coconut Oil fan for my hair... It has always dried my hair out and made it feel like hay...whether using it alone or with other products. However, I was given the opportunity to try Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil...

From the Tropical Traditions site:

Characteristics of Our Gold LabelTM Virgin Coconut Oil

This Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is a truly unrefined coconut oil. This coconut oil is made on Mt. Banahaw and surrounding areas from organic coconuts. Coconuts are used fresh (within 24-48 hours of harvest) from small family farms on Mt. Banahaw and other rural places in Quezon Province, the coconut capital of the Philippines. Only the highest quality coconuts are hand-picked from each harvest. The volcanic soil of Mt. Banahaw makes these organic coconuts some of the most nutritionally rich coconuts in the world! Testing done in independent laboratories reveals higher levels of phenolic antioxidants than other coconut oils. The fresh coconut meat is shredded (wet milled), and then cold-pressed using the water from inside the coconuts to make coconut milk. The milk is then allowed to sit for about half a day, while the oil naturally separates from the heavier water. The oil is then filtered from the curds (coconut solids). No chemical or high-heat treatment is used, and this oil contains no trans fatty acids. We do NOT mass produce this oil. It is made by families who are coconut farmers using old-fashioned traditional methods that have been used in the Philippines for hundreds of years. Our coconut trees and family producers are certified organic according to strict USDA standards. The families who produce the oil are also trained according to GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) standards and re-certified each year. This high-grade Virgin Coconut Oil has a long shelf life due to the high antioxidant properties. The Gold Label Standard is our highest standard for Virgin Coconut Oil. Read more.

My Review:

Let me say, I was so pleased with the results.  Unsure if it's because it's Virgin Coconut Oil or what... But my hair enjoyed this experience!! 

I did try to use it by itself, and my hair seemed to be in shock a bit...With my hair texture, I need a heavier product to keep it in check!! :)  So, I mixed it with some natural hair oils and a little gel in order to get the hold I was looking for, and it totally did the trick... FINALLY... Coconut Oil & my hair work together!!!

Here are the results of my twist out using this wonderful product:

How awesome is that shine, folks!?!?!? Gorgeous!!!

On a scale from One to Five Chocas, I give this product:

That twist out looks great on you. I recently did a twist out and I didn't like the results. Your hair is shiny and it looks really soft.

Charlotte's Avenue said...

JenJen * Thank you!!! Twist outs can be tricky... I used to have a love/hate relationship with them as well... Before I figured out how to manipulate my hair to look right, whether the twist out was on point or not. :) Yes, my hair was very soft with this twist out.
