Default Crisco for Natural Hair

So I have been researching Crisco being used for hair, and I have heard a lot of good things from it sealing in moisture, to adding nutrients to your hair. I would just like to know have any of you ever tested out crisco, and if so what was your experience like?

I've tried it for pressing both my hair (3b) and my daughter's hair (4a)

Absolutely loved the results but could not get past the smell.

It will probably help but the smell and the greasyness...no. I would leave it for the cooking.

Its actually not greasy. It is more of a lighter type of product that is nonheavy on the hair.

I am a fine 3b and my 4a daughter is even finer. It didn't feel greasy on our hair at all. If it were heavy and greasy I wouldn't have used it at all.

OP, you may be able to add a few drops of an essential oil to make it smell better. I keep meaning to research if anyone has ever tried this but keep forgetting to.

And the smell might not bother you. It's certainly used by a lot of folks hair-wise.

Yeah that's more of a personal thing because I have the same with other oils and products, that most of the time I don't really like the smell, but then it, someone else doesn't notice it all, so it's just a personal thing.

I haven't used it personally, but there is a lady in a hair group that I'm apart of who makes a concoction using crisco and some other stuff that people on the board rave about all the time. let me go see if I can find her recipe.
