REFINED OR UNREFINED COCONUT OIL

Bun all this Brexit madness! What I really wana know is what happens now!
What's gona happen to stores like Lidl and Aldi, where I recently discovered that I can buy my organic cocnut oil for £2.99, instead of the bumped up prices in Holland and Barrett?
(Hitting my already vulnerable pocket where it hurts does not fill me with confidence about the state of the UK's future. I might even have to rename this blog!)

So while my country spins in chaos, trying to work out "WTF just happened!", I'm just gona make the most of these Aldi prices while they're still here, and hope this helps those of you who are also budgeting right now.

Personally I prefer virgin coconut oil for my hair but it tends to be more expensive.
You may have seen my conversation on twitter with @Serenitybeaut. She uses refined coconut oil which you can get for £1 at Tesco and Asda. 
I recommend doing your research to decide which one you feel is best, but here's a basic guide to help you tell the difference between refined and unrefined coconut oil.
Hope it helps: 
Do you use coconut oil for hair or skin care?
What type do you prefer?
