Click through for 11 expert-approved ways to use coconut oil on your skin, hair and nails.
For an intensive dry hair treatment, Josie Feria, director of spa operations at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach, says: "Work into wet hair, cover with a shower cap and leave on for up to 30 minutes. Rinse and shampoo as usual."
Use it as an all-over moisturizing body oil. Feria says coconut oil works especially well as a treatment for dry elbows.
"Massage onto cuticles to eliminate dryness and stimulate nail growth."
Rub onto feet to hydrate and condition skin. Bonus: Feria says it also fights athlete’s foot and low level fungus.
Dab onto lips in place of lip balm. You'll likely find it's more nourishing!
Got frizz? Just add a small amount into your hair for instant control. 
Use it as a makeup remover for the entire face. It's non-irritating—even on the eyes!
For a highly exfoliating body scrub, mix with sea or rock salt. If you've got sensitive skin, Feria recommends using sugar instead.
Soothe itch and irritation caused by poison ivy, oak or sumac.
"To stimulate hair growth, massage coconut oil into your scalp."
"Apply it daily to the skin to help prevent stretch marks during pregnancy."
