I tried doing a DT today with coconut oil. With some heat. Was kinda itchy (not allergy) when it was on and a bit hard to get out. Had to wash twice with mild shampoo and then I DT-ed a bit with my conditioner.
Wasn't expecting much but my hair has been happy today.

I am wondering though, how effective is it to DT and then have to shampoo after? Will it neutralize the moisture boost?
Might have been just the post-shampoo DT that did the trick...but my hair seemed so soft after washing the oil out...

Actually many of us call this prepooing. It keeps the shampoo from being as stripping and lessens tangles. After shampoo i do my dc which i don't leave long or I get OC. Rinse out. Then go to li and styler.
