How your hair responds to mineral oil?

I second what speckla said.

In this case, for me, mineral oil doesn't dry me out, it clings on and I can hardly get it out. My curl pattern is also so weak that it weighs it down. And curl pattern isn't related to texture porosity.

Fia 2cFi, fine texture, med porosity CG 5-29-09 * My hair loves protein! Currently using : DermOrganics Shampoo and IHM, G2B Kinkier Mousse, Re:Coil VMM, Anything Spiral Solutions! MO Sealing. Coconut Oil Pre-Poo, once a month Hard Water shampoo. Avoiding Glycerin in finishing products.

I know some have a problem from just one use but I wanted to try K-Pak at least 2 times before giving my 2cents. I'm Coarse/Med-High porosity.

I didn't notice any ill effects, this is the only product that I have containing mineral oil and I don't plan to use it more then a couple times a month. I figured if RCC could use it without issues then I could to and our hair is similar in texture/porosity. I also Low Poo once a week or so through my length.

I don't believe I've ever tried any products with mineral oil in it, but I don't want to... mineral oil is nasty stuff! It's a by-product of petroleum... ew. Plus, I believe it coats your hair just like how silicones do? But I assume mineral oil is easier to get out of your hair than silicones, haha.

Speckla I'll take that as a Thanks I don't even remember what made me try coconut oil now. I'm sure it was from the 4's forum.....

RCC Bi-weekly would be every other week I wonder if I could stand it weekly..hmmmm but I think I may be more coarse then you are.

If you could stand it weekly, August would be the time, lol.

But, I do like to keep track of what you, Magoo, and Misspam do since I share product preference similarities with all of you.

Yeah, same here I hope magoo and misspam will weigh in too. curlyjenn10 is another coarse/porous

I voted no. My hair is mostly fine (according to my new stylist) and very porous.

I use the generic k-pak and my hair seems to love it.
cg Dec 08
fine to med texture w/ some coarse / high porosity 2c to 3a






what products have collagen protein in them? I've tried soy proteins(hair hates that) keratin; hair loves it; silk proteins; hair seems to like it, I would like to give a collagen treatment a try.
shoulder length inverted bob; fine; 3A-3B; med-thick density; normal porosity; normal elasticity- my hair loves keratin, ACV, silk protein ,Curlkeeper and AG:Recoil ; seems to hate moisturizing products and oils except mineral oil; CG- Jan/'09-mod CG Sept/'09;CG again Jan/'10/mod CG from Mar'10

receive $10 off 1st order of $40 & up, or $5 off on smaller orders, when using iHERB code: GIK909
I voted yes also. I have course low porosity hair and I occasionally try to use bio-mineral oil from the british curlies site... I swear my hair tries running away from it.... hence the random frizzy bits that instantly stand seperate from my head. lol

I like the light texture of it, so my brain refuses to give up trying to use it as a mid-day tamer, but Ill learn eventually. hehe
UK Curly
Boots essentials range - Co-wash
Aussie Miracle Moist - Conditioner
Any non-cone Leavein I can find (its not easy)
Boots essentials - Gel

Always brush with a comb. and wrap in a microfibre towel to dry.
I voted no. I have fine/medium with high porosity (I think that's right) hair.

I don't do Protein Treatments since I use Henna/Cassia every 3 weeks. However, I use Elasta QP DPR-11 which has mineral oil as the 8th ingredient for a deep conditioner along with honey, and EO's and haven't had a problem. I do that every week or every 2 weeks.
