coconut oil not for me
I've tried using coconut oil, just a dab that I emulsify in my hands on both wet and dry hair. I have to physically (smoothing it through) work it into my hair or it will just sit on top. Once it does absorb, I notice it has a tendency to leave my hair feeling dry a few hours later.
Having figured out the porosity of my hair, and that it already has a hard time absorbing water, this doesn't surprise me now.
Coconut oil, once it has time to penetrate the hair, can reduce the amount of water the hair absorbs.... This is a good thing if it protects hair from excessive weathering from water, but for me? No thank you. With my low porosity hair, I already have enough problems getting my hair to absorb water.
You feel me?
