I use the edible kind for both my hair and to cook with because it's 100% organic coconut oil.  I don't know what they do for the coconut oil to be just for skin and hair.  In my opinion if it's safe enough to eat it's safe enough to put on my hair.  But yes, you can go to a health food grocery store and ask for organic coconut oil and they should have it.

My favorite oil would have to be coconut oil. Supposedly camellia oil is really good, but I havent bought it yet so I'll let you know what's up when I buy it.

MY mother bids me bind my hair
With bands of rosy hue,
Tie up my sleeves with ribbons rare,
And lace my bodice blue.

So I live near a health food store, should I just ask them for organic coconut oil, and there is a difference in the edible kind as opposed to the kind for skin and hair...right?

Oh no, that's not the name.  The virgin coconut oil that I use is by spectrum organics.  I buy it at Whole Foods for around eight or nine dollars.   Most people who are coconut oil fanatics like myself use Tropical Traditions.  They say it's the best, but I've never tried it.  To me any organic coconut oil should be good enough.  I don't think a brand makes a major difference.

My favorite oil is Virgin Coconut Oil.  I also like EV Olive Oil, though.  Coconut oil is great for promoting hair elasticity and improving the cuticle and shine.  If taken internally it will make hair more manageable, soft, and shiny and also reduces your bodies need for Vitamin E.  The benefits of this oil are endless.  It's the only saturated fat proven to lower bad cholesterol levels and improve good ones.  It also works as an anti-oxidant and blocks free radicals that can damage skin and hair.  I can go on and on about coconut oil, but here's a website that can tell you more about it if you're interested.

Emu oil is my favorite because its creamy, increases the moisture level and makes my hair feel very rich and emollient. It also helps other oils deeply penetrate. I love it.

Next up is coconut, which not only smells good but adds moisture, shine, and prevents against hair protein loss.

I know people like to say oil only seals but doesn't moisturize. That's not true with these two oils, especially emu.

Dabur Vatika enriched coconut hair oil is my favourite too,it includes ingredients such as henna, lemon, rosemary oil and amla which strengthen the roots of your hair to help maintain health and thickness.  Dabur AMLA hair oil is quite an ancient hair remedy lol and works a treat because it promotes hair growth more and the healthiness. Dabur JASMINE hair oil makes hair really silky and smells gorgeous, but can turn hair a lighter shade gradually.
 
where i sometimes buy them when the stores have run out.

I think that's a fatty acid, not a drying alcohol. Try using a water based moisturizer and sealing it with an oil that will help retain moisture.

I have also noticed alot of products are temporary.  I am now experiencing dry ends and no matter what I do pony baggies, no baggies, it still gets dry once the air hits it.  have you found any oil that helps obtain moisture?

I have switched to using oil to combat different hair and skin ailments.  I have ordered natural shea butter and cocoa butter and made my own hair moisturizer. 
 
I have mixed shea butter, cocoa butter, vegetable glycerin, coconut oil with a few drops of peppermint oil, rosemary oil and vitamin oil and use this twice a day.  At night to wrap my hair and in the morning.  And I found it works great. Leaves my hair extremely soft and the shine last all day long.  Jamaica Mangoe and Lime products have a great oil out also.  I use a combination of stuff, but trying my best to stick to the natural things.  I also use aloe vera gel from time to time.  From my research, black hair takes oil well, but in cases where it don't, vegetable glcerin and aloe vera works wonders. 
 
Water soluble oil such as jojoba oil and castor oil works best because it's easily absorbed into skin and hair leaving a moisturized glow without a greasy feel.  Extra Virgin Olive Oil is also good but need to be used sparingly because it will leave a sticky heavy greasy feel behind.
