Coconut Oil as a Leave-In?

I bought a big tub of unrefined, organic, extra virgin coconut oil today (for deep treatments) and I am kind of curious if I could use it as a leave-in for the drier half of my hair? I got an ombre pink a while ago, and it left the lower half of my fine hair much more porous.

Could I use a touch of it under my gel? Should I mix it with my La Bella Lots of Curls? Or should I just stick to using it in deep treatments?

Please reply! Thank-you!
I love, love, love coconut oil as a LI. I use more depending on how my hair is in the morning or if its a humid/ damp windy day. I also use it along with my Henna Hair wax and I find it mixes well.

Just as long as you don't let it go anywhere near your scalp when using it as a LI!

You could try making an Ecostyler custard with any gel plus coconut oil (see YouTube).
