I was just trying it to see if it could smooth frizz on second day hair - and it was terrible at that for me.

A question. What's the minimum amount of time coconut oil can be on the hair to be useful as a pre-wash soak? I've mentioned before that my hair loves the Suave Coconut + coconut oil + honey pre-poo and the longest I've done that is two hours. Is it a waste of time/money to put coconut oil in there if it takes longer to penetrate?
Salt & pepper wavy mix 2B/2C
Low to normal porosity, coarse, kinky, normal elasticity
Current favorites:
Low poo: Yes To Cukes Color Protection (the no sulfate one)
Conditioners: Renpure MPHIP, CJ Smoothing Lotion, AB LI, CJ Curl Rehab, CJ Argan/Olive, Darcy's Pumpkin
