Has anyone at NC tried OIL SHAMPOOING?

Hi all!

I came across these EXTENSIVE threads at lhc.com:

Hair care of movie stars from the past - oil-shampoo - The Long Hair Community Discussion Boards

The Long Hair Community Discussion Boards - View Single Post - Hair care of movie stars from the past - oil-shampoo

I would LOVE hair that CAN be brushed (or wide-tooth combed) as they are describing. They are using warmed coconut oil (for the most part) IN a shampoo - as a cleanser WITHOUT conditioner. Some are having great results! I searched NC, did not see that anyone here had tried it.

I haven't had time to read through much of the threads, but sounds interesting!

THOUGHTS?

3a/b, fine, tends to be flat on top/at roots. Growing out damaged ends.
No-poo for over a year.

Experimenting with CV bars, AVG/J, and FSG.

Ultimate goal: NO PRODUCT!!! Considering Terressentials.

in a large tumbler of water, then rinsed that out. Scrunched out most of the water with a towel, combed through my hair and did not add any products. Sat under the bonnet dryer 10 minutes, my hair dried more quickly than usual.
I finger styled and brushed my hair a little, after it was dry.
My curl pattern is looser, smoother,no frizz. No clumpy spirals like I usually have with gel, more like beachy waves, and lots of shine. This reminds me of when I used to set my hair in hot rollers.
I'd say go ahead and try it if you'd like a looser curl and a smoother look for a change, without damage.
Here is my usual hair with CG method.
Here is my result today with the oil shampooing, no products added.

I did it for awhile but stopped. I didn't use warmed coconut oil, I just rubbed it in my hands to melt it first a bit then added my shampoo.

I've never tried adding the oil to my shampoo, but I do use quite a bit of coconut oil in my hair daily. Unlike most oils, it doesn't weigh me down, and I don't need sulfates to remove it.
I pre-poo with it, then either low poo or co wash, then I use a tiny bit over my RO then either leave it in, or do a quickie rinse in cold water. I read in the natural haven blog that the oils that can penetrate the hair shaft need at least 5 minutes to do so. So if I was trying this I would let the poo or co wash sit for 5 minutes before rinsing just to get the most out of it.

Those threads are overwhelming! I read about it a while ago, but didn't follow up with it. It sounds too complicated. At the very least, there would be a transitioning/adjustment period, and that's a huge turnoff for me since I am content with my hair right now.
