Thanks for the link and suggestions. The learning curve is steep. I keep learning what not to do (over and over again). I think my hair likes coconut oil. I didn't plan to but I ended up using it as a deep treatment. I found out a little goes a long way when I woke up with hair that was still kinda wet with oil. So I just co-washed it out but didn't add in more. Next time I'll try just a teeny amount. Anyway good to hear that the oil was working its way to the cortex all night long.
