Review: I first learned of this coconut oil when one of my favorite YouTubers mentioned it in one of her videos. My hair and I love coconut oil so I was really interested in trying this brand to see for myself if it was a noticeable difference between it and all the other EVCOs I've tried. I purchased my first jar just a few months ago and immediately fell in love. Although I heard many good things about this brand I must admit I wasn't convinced that it would be any different, well I was wrong. The first thing I noticed was how creamy the Tropical Traditions Gold Label coconut oil is and I'm assuming the fact that it is hand-made (not machine made) contributes to that. It is made in small batches by family producers and contains the highest level of anti-oxidants. These facts are what make the gold label coconut oil stand out amongst the other Tropical Traditions' coconut oils and other brands of coconut oil. I was given the food grade coconut oil for the purpose of this review however, I have only used it on my hair and body. On my hair I use the oil for a pre-poo, as a moisture sealant, and with a few drops of peppermint essential oil for scalp massages. After showering I apply to my damp skin to retain moisture. My hair and body are always left feeling soft and well moisturized after use.
Summary: Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil has definitely become my EVCO of choice. While it is slightly higher in price than the EVCO I use to purchase from my local health food store I don't mind paying a little more for a higher quality product. I would definitely suggest this brand to all of my kurlfriends who like and use coconut oil. The only negative thing I can say which isn't really negative is that I wish it was available on the ground, other than that I have no complaints.

Additional info: Tropical Traditions also offers the Gold Label EVCO for hair treatment and 3 different organic hair oils that have the gold label coconut oil and several other organic oils in them. The difference between the food grade and hair treatment gold label coconut oil is that the hair treatment contains more protein because it contains more coconut solids.
