Who else is feeling' the love for oil treatments?

My hair has been feeling so dry from a recent color correction and winter and overnight oil treatments have really been doing the trick! So far I've tried argan and coconut. What oils/oil blends do you like?

The coconut oil does wonders for me. I even gave my little long haired Dachshund a coconut oil pre poo treatment. It even cowashed out of her fur pretty good. I am applying CG even to the dog and its works for her really well. I have a less itchy dog now.
So I have a q about coconut oil!

Last night, I wet my hair and put coconut oil in it. Then I wrapped my hair in a towel and slept in it that way.

This morning I woke up and my hair was INSANELY curly! :O I then co-washed and styled my hair as usual.

My Q is: does coconut oil encourage curl formation? My hair is quite thin/fine, so I'm surprised. Also, I did a co-wash this morning, but will the benefits of the coconut oil stick in my hair?

I use peppermint essential oil with coconut oil and a couple of drops of tea tree oil. Feels so nice and minty on the scalp. I love it!
