Medusa- Even before I went on the curly girl routine I would occasionally use coconut oil I purchased from the Indian store to deep condition. It sometimes would pull the curl out as well. I found that I could only leave it on for a few hours, not all night. It is kind of a balancing act. I was not ever able to put it in after washing because it would weigh my hair down. It did seem that my hair was porous and would take the oil freely. I have heard there are different types of coconut oil, like pressed and such. The way they are processed changes the way they affect your hair. I did find if I left some coconut oil on for a short time, warmed on wet hair it added shine and curl. I had to rinse it all out. I know many Indian ladies and men use coconut oil on their hair but you must rinse it out. Good luck.
