Default Coconut Oil?

I have been putting coconut oil in my hair for as long as I can remember. But, just recently, I read an article about how it can straighten hair? Has that worked for anybody? If so, details on how? PLEASE!!!

I just tried a honey and coconut oil conditioner and it made my hair even curlier but more of a baby/loose curl. Try one of the coconut oil recipes to see if it makes a difference.

Well, I know that just applying coconut oil to the hair weighs it down because of the oil. If I put enough of it in, it will straighten my hair (although it appears greasy). Once I co-wash it out though, it is the same ol' reg'lar curl pattern I always have, unless I don't rinse all of it out. Could you post the article perhaps?

It'll weigh down the hair if you put enough in, like any oil, but it doesn't permanently straighten hair.

It's not too hard, as long as you don't use a ton.
