You are not the first person to learn a little goes a long way. Sorry, I forgot to mention this. I usually describe the amount of oil you need before washing as enough to make it look like your hair is overdue for a washing, kinda greasy, but not an oil slick. Glad it is working for you.
BTW, there is no difference on the way they work on hair but Virgin coconut oil has a nice coconut fragrance and regular coconut oil doesn't smell like coconuts.
