  1. Great article, Carleen. If you’re generally allergic to Cocamide, is it a bad idea to use extra virgin coconut oil as a scalp treatment, or is it ok because it’s unprocessed? If it’s ok, I need to do that this weekend!!

  2. Hmmm, good question. I don’t know the answer for sure, but my understanding of Cocamide is that it is the chemical that forms from a reaction between the fats in coconut oil and DEA. So I would think extra virgin oil would be fine. But my concern is that the allergy could really be to the fatty acid in coconut oil instead. Perhaps the best thing to do is a spot check first. Rub a bit of oil on your inside elbow and see what happens? If you can use it, it really is a great scalp treatment. Or, you can substitute olive oil. I have used that as a scalp treatment and love it for split ends too!
