People on here do a lot of unscientific and illogical things

(And even when I get a clue, well, it doesn't usually stick around...)
Do you guys heat it first so it's a liquid? How much do you use (coconut oil to conditioner ratio)?
2C normal/high porosity?, medium/coarse texture, lower density
Cleanse: Pura D'Or every week or two, Yes to Cukes
Conditioner: VO5 Kiwi Lime (LOVE!), Tresemme Naturals, YTC
DT: GVP Conditioning Balm w/ coconut oil
LI: a touch of JCTS
Products: my HG is Tresemme Bouncy Curls Defining Gel mixed with a touch of BRHG over a little flax seed gel, SM Souflee/Milk for 2nd day hair, occasionally Bioterra Curling Creme and Gel
Modified CG since November 2012- finally found what works!

I'd start out with less oil initially if you are nervous of how your hair will respond, maybe as little as a teaspoon. My hair will tolerate a lot of coconut oil and I know how to wash out the excess.

Flour sack towel, pixie diffuse or air dry.

On wet or dry hair? Overnight? Maybe add a tablespoon of honey, too?

I apply it on dry hair and let it sit for a couple of hours while we do our Saturday morning meal planning and whatnot.

I wash with plenty of conditioner, making sure to emulsify whatever is left with the added conditioner.

That's not that long for coconut oil, but it seems to work well for me.

I decided to use some of my extra virgin coconut oil before doing a gelatin PT. It's usually in a solid form, but since I'm frugal (aka cheap), my a/c is set to 80 degrees; needless to say, it was semi-solid leaning more towards liquefied! So my frugal self didn't have to use the microwave to melt it
