Jojoba "Oil" is not an oil but rather a liquid wax. I agree that I would think your hair would like coconut oil, but I do not really know why it does not.

I've heard good things about sweet almond oil.
I don't use too much oil as a 'low porosity protein sensitive' because in essence the hair shaft is 'sealed', and the battle is to get moisture in.

I hope someone else can chime in.

Also, RCC I'll look into the mango oil, thanks!
