Oil Rinses vs Deep Conditioning

Like Tree9Likes

Hey Ladies,

I'm sure I will get different answers but just wondering do you use oil rinses, deep conditioning or both? My hair loves oil rinses (I use EVOO and Vatika Oil). I cowash or wash, apply the warm oil and then sit under the dryer like I'm doing a DC and then I cowash out. This always results in luxuriously soft tangle free hair.

When I do DC's I get mediocre to to good results (depending on the condish)...never mind blowing like oil but it's better than nothing. My original plan was to alternate each week. One week oil rinse, the other DC but now I am wondering if that is even necessary plus I wear my hair in more protective styles now so I am not necessarily able to apply a dc or oil rinse every week depending on how my hair is styled.

my other option was that when I do decide to do an oil rinse to do a dc before or after but that's too much work!!!

My last option is to pick one; I am leaning towards the oil rinse.

Thoughts? What are you doing?

Hi there! I've actually been debating this same thing...
Since I LOVE oils and experimenting with them (as well as ayurvedic methods), I think I'm going to do oil rinses and henna/clay treatments in place of DCing. I've discovered my hair thrives on water and oil, but I DEFINITELY need something on my hair in between the two, so I plan to invest in a great leave-in. Maybe I'll DC with something thick and creamy once a month or something, but I've decided to be more reliant on oils.

I do both but DC more frequently because I am using up a DC and sometimes I get lazy. Also I don't oil rinse when I'm doing a WNG. I use a DC as a pre-poo, go do some cardio, and wash it out.

I will probably alternate between a DC prepoo and an olive oil and honey rinse this winter.

I use oil as a pre-po but I've never done an oil rinse. I'd be too worried about killing myself in the shower because I slipped in a pile of coconut or castor oil the entire time I'd be doing it

It is heavy, but I microwave the oil for 20 seconds or so to make it easier to work with. I then immediately add the honey. I'm not a measurements person, I eyeball it. My hair is on the dull side and it is NOTICEABLY shiny when I do this combination. I have one more use of my MJ super sweetback treatment, and then I'm switching to olive oil and agave or honey.

I may try oil rinses with Jane Carter's curl defining cream tho.

I did the oil rinse with EVOO and agave nectar. I love it! My hair is so soft, bouncy, and shiny. For some reason my curls look tighter too. Even the heat damaged areas curled more and that never happens. I used CURLs creme brulee as a leave in and then KCCC.

I do both oil rinse and deep conditioning. the only different is that you can add the oil to your scalp.
There's nothing my hair loves more than deep conditioning for about 30 minutes and then rinsing the hair with plain water (vinegar rinses benefits do not outweight the cost of the smell for me) and then combing and style just using coconut oil.
Well since you already know oil rinses are what works for you then just do them all the time, there is no need to overthink it.
Before i also thought i needed a moisturizer besides coconut oil for a leave in but if our hair is not complaining why should we worry?

I apply EVOO to freshly washed hair, put the DC over that, then leave it on for a bit.
