Add oil to your shampoo to soften, condition and detangle your hair.
Want to add slip (detangling) to your cleansing? Add oil to your shampoo. Coconut oil is wonderful for hair, evening primrose oil is soothing and healing to the scalp, canola oil is light and has little scent. You can also use melted shea butter or cocoa butter—any vegetable fat found in most natural hair products will do.
Add 1/8 teaspoon to 1/4 teaspoon to a very shallow palmful of shampoo for fine hair, or 1-2 teaspoons for thick or very curly hair. Your shampoo will probably foam more than usual, but your hair will be left feeling silky.
