Thanks for that explanation!
About the coconut oil...you said, "it protects the natural protein in the hair once it penetrates." Does that make it good or bad for coarse, dense hair with lo porosity? Or is this another individual thing? I don't even know if I COULD get the oil to penetrate my hair.
