First attempt at Coconut oil....
I've been posting frequently on this thread, since I seem to be brave and trying new things lately. I tried coconut oil for the first time this morning. I applied a generous amt of the oil on wet hair in the shower and combed through & put on MF tuban & left on for awhile. Then I washed with Giovanni 50/50 and applied nickel amt of Fructis Sleek & Shine for leave-in (I didn't use a rinse-out as I usually do). My hair didn't have the slick silky feel after rinsing out the oil, kind of a gummy feeling?. Into soaking hair, I scrunched in KCCC+GF Pure Clean Gel, then BHRG on top. Diffused. Hair feels weightier, but not greasy looking. Defined curls & more clumping than usual (maybe I went overboard on product though?). Any suggestions on other ways to use the coconut oil? I worry about weight down, so that is why I applied before lo-poo on my first try. My hair is baby fine, but I have alot of it.
