Coconut oil is about reducing porosity with regular use, the Curly Girl method is about healthier hair not instant gratification as with commercial haircare products.
Choose your ingredients and products based on your hair properties, Cantu leave in is not a true conditioner, it doesn't contain much in the way of fatty alcohols or cationic surfactants. Ingredients beneficial to damaged or porous hair include hydrolysed protein, coconut oil, ceramides and panthenol.
