And if you do want to use oil, find something besides olive oil, which is very heavy. I really like Jessicurl's oil mix of coconut, jojoba and avacado oil: http://jessicurl.com/Oil-Blend-for-S...ir-pr-626.html

I use it often as a night-time treatment, but I only put it on the hair shaft (and only lightly at that), not on the scalp.
