CG method help

Like Tree4Likes

Coconut oil is solid at cooler temperatures, so it depends on where you live. My CO stays solid all year round because it's not very hot here--sometimes if we're having a heat wave it'll soften up a bit. But liquid or solid are both the same.
3a/b, F, normal porosity

Wash with either Suave Tropical Coconut, As I Am, or CJ Daily Fix
Condition with STC or Yes to Blueberries and detangle with Denman, rinse very lightly (baptismal rinse)
Add LAL gel, either Sport or Wet Look, scrunch with flour sack towel, and plop
Diffuse 5 minutes, then air dry
Okay thank y'all very much!
CoWash: VO5 Moisture Milk Strawberry and Creme

Actually coconut oil can also be fractionated so liquid all year round, this is less common but you do see it. It has a slightly different fatty acid composition which is less beneficial in this context because some of the lauric acid has been removed. So you want the regular coconut oil be that refined or virgin which is solid at room temperature most of the year.
2a-2c, medium texture, porous/ colour treated. Three years CG. Past bra strap length heading for waist.

Leave in: Fructis Sleek & Shine (old), Gliss Ultimate Volume, various Elvive

Flour sack towel, pixie diffuse or air dry.
Experimenting with: benign neglect

I'm really liking my l'oreal evercurl cleansing conditioner it's a lot gentler than my sheamoisture shampoo since I have a dry scalp but its cheaper so I now use my sheamoisture to 'clarify' per se

Yes, you're right--i realized later that I misspoke on that one. I've never seen fractionated coconut oil, so I didn't even think of it!

Trader Joe's also carries virgin coconut oil for a very good price.

Today I went to my local walgreens, and they didn't have any As I Am products so I bought RenPure Clensing Conditioner. It does have an A Cone in it but I've heard that it doesn't build up. I also got Shea Moisture Restorative Conditioner and I'm using that as a leave in for now. I haven't been able to find any coconut oil yet but I'm going to walmart tomorrow to look for it there.

Coconut oil has a melting point of 76 degrees, so keep that in mind when looking for quality. It might not be the quality of the oil but the temperature of the room.
