I tried using coconut oil as a pre-wash treatment today. It was ehh...I did it because I wanted to use ABBA Pure Moisture (i.e. a sulfate-free shampoo that lathers quite a bit) and didn't want my hair to feel rough or tangly. Well, the shampoo got most of the oil out and my hair was kind of tangly, so that was disappointing. I think this is one of those things you have to do on a consistent basis in order to see results. Not sure if I'm up for that just now.
I still like applying a small amount of argan oil to my hair in between rinse/condition's...that works fine in conjunction with my frequent use of CJ Daily Fix.
