The best way to wash it put is with believe it or not conditioner. It sounds like it wouldn't work at forst but conditioner will emulsify the oil (i.e. make the oil and water mix) thus making it come out of your hair. Experiment with different oils and see what you like. Coconut oil can make your ends crispy in winter or if your just protein sensitive. I would reccomend jojoba or avocado. Olive oil is great too but it can be heavy. I usually don't leave mine overnight and you can wrap your head in a warm towel to help it really do its magic. Hope I helped.
A. Dickey of Hair Rules Salon suggested that I use Neem oil at night and wash out in the a.m. because I had told him that sealing with oil didn't work for me. Neem is some kind of oil from India (I think) - very light. It is in Beautiful Curls Shea Butter and Neem Oil Nourishing Curl
oil. I expect most light oils would work fine.
I don't use heat. I'm pleased with the results when I use the Neem but BringingBack is right - oil will emulsify oil, so her method sounds very good, too.

Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,

Stylers: Experimenting with cones & sulfates while the dews are high. Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls. Every day is a gift
Sorry, I know this is off topic but curlypearl how often do you wash? I am beginning to get addicted to washing again so just wondering? What's your washing hair schedule? Like do you wash everyday or other and do you always co wash or what? Your hair sounds like mine, so I thought I'd ask.
protein is tricky but I love moisture
