So I've used coconut oil 3 times now and have had horrible experiences every time.
Today I applied coconut oil to dry hair and put up in a shower cap for about 3 hours. I then got in the shower and used a clarifying conditioner (vo5 mint tea) and conditioned as usual. Rinsed my hair and combed through then applied conditioner to soaking wet hair to style. ( like always ) this time when applying my conditioner instead of my fingers sliding through it was rough and coarse. The texture of my hair was similar if you would put aloe in dry hair. Gummy and stiff. It's terrible. If I take my hand to glide down my hair it doesn't glide. Whats going on?! This happens every time. I usually end up baking soda avc rinsing my hair.
I'm sitting here now about 15 minutes after my shower and my hair is sooooo stiff.
