I can only use oil a few drops at a time. I use it to seal, and I'll use lighter oils to refresh dry hair. But it's always a few drops rubbed into my palms and then smoothed onto the hair.
What oils are you using? Penetrating oils like coconut or EVOO will only work in DT's and pre-poos. I can use jojoba, or SM's elixir, or Grapeseed oil for sealing or refreshing. I use mineral oil for sealing. I've yet to try castor oil, but I hear good things.
Be sure to have a good protein and moisture balance - my hair can't get enough of either, and I'm fine and porous!
Hope that helps some!
