The time I used it overnight was just oil. It was bad news for me, but others do it without a problem.

Speaking for myself and as least some of the other people here, we just don't have a clue.
That'd be me and since I hated science in HS (needed only one credit to graduate) and tested out of it in college (chee hoo!), I find myself diving into the deep pool of unscientific and illogical things. Mahalo Ke Akua it is a very deep pool, otherwise I'd have broken my neck.

(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)?

It'll melt pretty darned quick in your hand.

I microwave the oil briefly. I use one tablespoon oil to two of conditioner, from experience that is the most my conditioner will emulsify with continuous stirring. 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.

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

I take 2T coconut oil, a squirt of honey (maybe 1T) and microwave together. My coconut oil is liquid at these temps, but I like warming them together. I mix well, then squirt in a bunch of conditioner. I use maybe 1/2 - 1 cup. It's a lot, but my hair is dense and I use the conditioner to help me distribute the oil and honey. 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
