From what I read here on nc.com, one feature of coconut oil is that it's especially good at holding onto protein, so that's why some protein sensitive people have difficulty with it. (I don't have the links to the articles/discussion about this on hand, but I found this info from just doing a search).
I'm pretty protein sensitive but my hair really likes coconut oil (it soaks it in really well whereas some oils just sit on my hair and make it look oily). Nevertheless, when I use coconut oil to do an oil rinsing, I make a point to be really sure I'm not using any products that have strengthening proteins anywhere in the ingredients list.
