Typically I ignore threads about detangling methods and products. I have for the last year or so. I thought my hair's health or my big chop had something to do with how easily it detangles. That is absolutely NOT the case. The oil-rinse method is why it detangles so easily. My hair completely detangles under just running water! Keep in mind I've recently adopted a low manipulation regimen. So the last time I detangled was at least a week (or more) ago.

If you're having problems with tangles try this...

1. Rinse (or shampoo) your hair
2. Coat in your favorite oil (I've used olive, jojoba, castor, meadowfoam, dabur alma, and aphogee EFA oil, red palm oil/butter--- my favorite is an amla, castor mix)
3. Rinse with warm/hot water
4. Apply conditioner
5. Rinse with cool/cold water
6. Apply leave-in
7. Seal

I'm not alone other people think it a miracle too...http://www.longhaircareforum.com/for...89#post2679989

The part that makes it an oil rinse is using conditioner to help rinse some of the oil from your hair. Everything else is just a pre-poo, hot oil treatment, or an oil wash.

Don't sleep on oil rinses! It may be your hair miracle


I got this for another site and I hope this helps you.

I wondered why oil rinsing never worked for me. I switched steps 2 and 4. Hmmm... off to reconsider....

I usually detangle while I have the oil in my hair. I usually use coconut or vatika oil to rinse with.

I like to oil rinse on occasion, usually before I do some twists. It does make a difference in the feel of my hair.

I like to oil rinse occasionally. I'm just on a butter kick now, though.

My experience with oil rinsing it that it renders the same benefit as applying a little oil to soaking wet hair and then my leave-in (usually Qhemet BRBC or HC).

I have gone from finding single strand knots all of the time to rarely finding one in months while using a little coconut oil either with oil rinsing or leaving a little in on soaking wet hair.

It's so softening.

Default Well.....

I actually did an oil rinse last night and am proud to say that I'm having one of the best hair days that I've ever had. My hair is soft, shiny, and the curls are more defined than ever. Oil rinsing will definitely be a part of my hair care arsenal from now on.

I do a simple oil rinse of jojoba and evoo. The oil rinse doubles as a deep treatment .I warm up the jojoba/evoo just as you would any other hot oil treatment and I apply it to my hair in sections. Once all my hair is covered I detangle with my hands only. I cover with a plastic cap for about 30 mins. I hop in the shower and rinse out and apply a condish and then rinse that out. I only did this once this month, but as it gets colder outside, I'll up it to twice a month to help out with dryness.

I like oil rinsing sometimes in the winter when my hair gets dry. Vatika is my fav oil of choice. Just make sure you scrub your tub afterwards so you don't fall!!

I have a question about this.

Doesn't oil seal in moisture if used after you moisturize and block moisture if used before?

So if I do an oil rinse before moisturizing, won't it keep my hair from absorbing the moisture?

Truly, I don't know. But my oil rinsing technique is a little different. I poo, rinse, and mix my oil with my conditioner. I detangle with it in and rinse out about 80% of the conditioner/oil mix. I get the same results as everyone else though, soft hair.

Oil seals in moisture but it doesn't seal it out.

Oil rinses help me have great wash n go curls. I have been oil rinsing with oils infused with rosemary and this also kept my hair nice and dark. Plus rosemary stimulates the scalp and is supposed to promote growth.

They also killed my drain so I am taking a break from them at the moment.

I love oil rinses. I do my oil rinses when I detangle my hair. The brush just slips out my hair in the shower with it. Also my hair feels so soft and looks so shiney afterwards.

But are you doing it before or after you condition/moisturize?

3. Rinse with warm/hot water
4. Apply conditioner generously and detangle
