coconut oil, olive oil,....if you are no-poo how do you to get these oils out?

Like Tree3Likes

I am just stating out with CG and tomorrow will be my 1st no-poo day as this morning I had to wash out any -cone's left in my hair.

Anyway, I'd like to try one of the recipies for a DT and I found one this one:
3 tsp honey
1/4 EVOO

Is this going to be a nightmare to try and get out of my hair? I can't imagine not using shampoo after putting a 1/4 cup of oil in my hair.

Any DT advice from any CG's out there?
Personally I've found it hard to get coconut oil out with a sulfate-free shampoo, let alone no 'poo. I don't use those oils unless I'm going to have one of my occasional shampoos.

I've used olive oil and gotten it out with a co-wash. But I use a LOT of conditioner in order to do it. I saturate my hair dry with a cheap conditioner, then wet it, add more and used it just like a shampoo. Rinse and condition as usual. Never been a problem for me.

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.
I have a lot of random oils on hand from using oil cleansing method on my face and I like putting them in my hair. I have tried putting coconut oil, grapeseed oil, jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, avocado oil, and apricot kernel oil in my hair. All of these oils came out with enough conditioner. conditioner is like an emulsifier to allow water and oil to mix. I agree, you will probably need a lot of conditioner to get 1/4 cup of oil out.
1/4 cup of olive oil is a lot, too much IMO. I make a DT using my regular conditioner, a tablespoon or two of olive oil, and lots of honey (close to 50/50 honey and conditioner). It rinses without any problems.

I'm sitting here wondering the exact same thing. I just did my first olive oil application and am sitting here with my hair in saran wrap covered by a shower cap with water dripping down my back, lol.

I'm going to leave it for an hour and cowash to get it out.

It was unnerving applying the olive oil though. It made my hair stick straight. I know in my brain that it's totally ok, that it isn't ruining my hair or anything but it was scary seeing my hair so straight. Gee, what a change of heart! :laughing:

Get some cheap conditioner like V05 to co-wash it out. You'll need a lot, but it will come out if you scrub and massage. You might need to do multiple co-washes, though. But my hair is always waaay curlier after oil application, so it's worth it.
I have no problem getting the coconut oil out with one cowash.

The more I think about it the more I think my hair really, really liked the olive oil DT. My curls are really amazing today.

Wow, can't wait to try this then! I've put olive oil in my hair, but only mixed with conditioner. Will try straight olive oil with the honey, and maybe a little lavender oil for scent.
But doesn't honey strip color? I thought I heard that but don't remember where.
Thanks!

Another vote for it always comes out with conditioner, but I'm using a lot.
I found adding a bit of lemon to conditioner and co-washing helps get oil out (though not sure whether the fact that lemon can be drying means its counterproductive though!)
I don't find lemon juice particularly drying, although I much prefer lime juice - it's like vinegar, but without the rank smell!

hmm i think i'm going to try straight EVOO and leave it on for a few hours to see if my hair likes it. I'll be doing a protein treatment on saterday morning.

If my hair doesn't like it next time i'll try evoo and honey, or mix it with conditioner.

would an ACV rinse be a good idea to be able to get oils out without using a half a bottle of conditioner?

Why ? Because it's easier to get out these oils of my hair then. And my hair is better moisturized with aloe vera.

Concerning honey, I don't use it anymore, because I just can't rinse it out !

My DT advice ? Use juste a few amount of oils (any oils, but for me, jojoba is the one that works the best!) and mix it with aloe vera gel or gelly if you prefer, and apply the mixture to your hair.

Or, you can make a "detangling spritz" with :
- water
- aloe vera
- oils of your choice
- essential oils

You can use it as often as desired, when you want to detangle your hair, or when you just want to give bounce to your curls or to moisturize your hair.

I use coconut milk instead of oil, since the oil solids are lightly dispersed in the milk & easy to rinse out w/ warm water.

For me, I find it easier to remove oils with conditioner than shampoo (doubtful at first too but it works for me). I'm no poo too, btw.

Here's what I do:
1. Apply conditioner (preferably cheap) on hair until hair is completely soaked in it.

2. Scrub scalp with pads of fingers (not nails).

3. Leave it on for a while. (at least 10 minutes)

4. Rinse out.

5. Follow with regular routine if you want or just add your moisturizing rinse out conditioner. (optional)

- so it's basically like CO washing..
If you're not sure about the time, start with 10 minutes and add more or less time depending on how clean it is.
- if hair is not completely clean, repeat. (usually gone by second try, if not by first)
- no buildup, oil, or residue (for me)

I have another method, which I prefer.
