It's certainly worth a try. Shea better is a moderately penetrating oil and coconut oil is very penetrating. Penetrating oils won't work as well if applied over other products. (ie leave ins applied earlier) They also don't work as well on non porous hair. (these are what cause the coated and dirty feeling ) There are also less penetrating oils, any of the liquid ones, which feel better in those situations.

2c/3a, F/M, ii, med porosity, good elasticity, APL, silvery dark brown.
Love coconut oil, olive oil, and Everyday Shea!
