Just fyi, it won't do anything to moisturize, its just too heavy to sink into the hair shaft. It may just sit on top and risk looking greasy.


I personally can't even use baby oil on my body. Its too thick.

Then again, maybe someone with drier coarser hair will chime in.

Will be a great sealer. It's mineral oil after all! Use it after your leave in.

MO is my HG!! I put in my LI, then Put a few drops of MO over that (with hair still very wet), then my stylers.

Sometimes I mix a little LI with it so it's easier to tell where I'm distributing it.

I do low-poo once or twice a week, but even when I co-wash I've never had any problems with build-up.

It has to be plain MO - no additives like aloe or vit E, etc. (fragrance isnt a problem, tho.). And you are using a few drops!

It seals in moisture, and deals OUT humidity (when that applies). I love it! I thought I would hate it, too, but tried it after I read an article here on NC that explained it. (I made a thread about it, actually!)

Give it a shot! If you hate it, you can always wash it out!

I started sealing with baby oil after reading Jas76's thread. I focus mainly on the hair at my nape, and not only is it not heavy or greasy, it's been amazing for reducing tangles in this area (my biggest problem area). I primarily co-wash and have no buildup issues.
