OK to use Ojon Restorative on Wet Hair?

I know that ideally Ojon is supposed to be applied to dry hair, but I've tried once or twice and I can't take it anymore. My 3c/4a hair is too thick and unruly and it's painful to put a comb through my dry hair. I'm also not willing to spend 20 minutes working through my hair.

I just put some on after washing my hair. It was easy to comb through my wet hair (I used a wide-toothed Goody comb, forget that little comb the product comes with).

Will I get any benefit? I hate to waste the stuff as it's so darned expensive.

I wrote the company, but they haven't gotten back to me.
Back when my hair was chemically processed, I used to use it on wet hair all the time. I think it worked just fine. I say if it seems to be doing what you need it to do, then go for it.

I haven't used it on my natural hair because it's too expensive for me these days, so I did not replace it ages back when I finished my last jar.

I've used it on wet hair as more of a deep treatment type of thing and it worked fine.
I use it almost every day on dry hair, just a couple pea size amounts melted and scrunched into hair.

I buy a large size tub on Ebay for much less than retail. It lasts me about a year so it really isn't too bad price wise.

I used to use Ojon.. I didn't stop because anything was wrong with it.. I am just Shea Butter happy these days..LOL! But I will get some more Ojon probably this month or next.

I have used it on chemically processed hair and totally natural hair and on wet and dry hair. It works great on both!

I have used it on my wet hair and it worked just fine. My curls were nice and soft when they dried. Sometimes I would apply it to my damp hair, slip on a plastic shower cap, and just let it sit on my hair for a long time and go about doing my business around the house. Then I would get in the shower and just do a rinse..because I didn't want all of it out. My curls looked really good..even once it dried.

So I am pretty sure it works on wet or dry hair.. it's just an oil and I find it sort of locks in moisture on damp hair..if that makes sense..
Thanks.

I replied "not necessarily" because I've read on several sites that it's worked well wet or dry. Seems to be a YMMV thing.

I've only used it on dry hair. While I probably have to use more product to avoid pulling it through my hair with any comb while dry, I like that it's recommended for dry hair because I am honestly too lazy sometimes to do that extra step of wetting my hair before -- whether with spray bottle or shower.
