Does that mean my hair hates it?

Probably. It could also be that coconut oil is a solid at room temperature, so in colder weather, it can resolidify in your hair, which can lead to breakage.

There are other, lighter oils to try that are good for hair- olive oil, argan oil, etc.

LALSG for high humidity
SM Weightless Texture Spray for refreshing

I would say you may just not be using it right.

It is great for deep conditioning as long as you wash it out.

If you want to put it on your hair to add shine, that is usually after you have done all the styling and have a leave-in conditioner underneath. It will make your hair feel stronger. It's not going to add moisture that isn't already there. So if you just put it on your hair you may be drying it out.

If you just want an oil that will feel softer, I would recommend almond or avocado oil. I use those for that purpose.
