Okay! so let's start with how I used it:
I got some rice water on my hair after a few minutes, without rinsing off the rice water, I got a tiny plastic bowl, poured some palm oil in it, got a bigger bowl and filled it with hot water then I placed the smaller bowl in the bigger one. I then sectioned my hair into....err...I've forgotten. I still kept on sectioning and getting the palm oil from my scalp to my hair then I single-braided my hair in sections. I then put on a plastic cap then tied scarves (two) over it to 1. prevent noises from the plastic cap and 2. to prevent a possible leakage of the palm oil onto my pillow. I slept with it on then took out the braids and washed it out in the morning. I started washing it out with conditioner (and detangling) first then I mixed a bit of shampoo in with the conditioner and then washed my hair better. I then rinsed that out, filled a bucket with water and turned my hair over letting it all be in the water, but my face not in it. I swished it around a bit, got it out then did a final conditioner wash.
After all that:
I then did a final detangling process then got a little canola, basil and rosemary oil into my hair because of the shampoo that I used. Afterwards, I combed it out and held it away from my face then I got a really tiny bit of aloe vera onto my hair. I left the house with my hair still wet for a rehearsal. After the rehearsal, I went to get my hair braided with extensions at a salon. I never comb my hair dry so I wet it up a bit by myself and that's when I felt my hair and I was like, "Ohmigosh! it's so soft!"
What I liked about it:
How soft it made my hair feel and how my hair looked. Seriously, it feels really good.
What I didn't like about it:
Washing it out was a.... dilemma. It took quite a long time. That irritated me a bit because I had someone coming over to pick me up to head to the rehearsals, they were 30 minutes away and I hadn't showered yet so it took a lot of time. Luckily, they stopped over to buy some things so I had about an hour. I spent most of the time washing out the palm oil. I didn't even get to detangle my hair fully so I did that at the salon.
My advice to you:
Don't use palm oil on your hair if you know you're going to be in a hurry when you need to wash it out.
If you're sure you're not going to be in a hurry, go ahead! use it on your hair! it's really good! It's also anti-fungal, antibacterial besides its conditioning, softening and treating properties.
What am I going to do?:
I'm going to try this out about once every 2 months. I'm saying every 2 months because I don't think I'll have the patience every month to wash it out and also, I have rehearsals till December. But, 2 months...at least I get to use it!
