Has anyone tried monoi or jojoba oils on their hair?

I use jojoba oil as an actual styler. It sounds like I use a lot more than other people here - about 4-5 drops at a time. I smooth it over wet hair and let it airdry, and it both emphasizes my curls and eliminates frizz. I have to watch it, or else I put too much in my hair. I am using sulfate-free shampoo these days - I noticed when I tried doing this on CG, my hair got really weighed down because of all that oil.
I use the Desert Essence stuff from Trader Joe's. A bottle lasts about a month and a half for me.
Hair type: 3A. Almost chin length with Bettie bangs. Currently using GF Curl & Shine S/C, leave in and jojoba oil. Colored black. Check out my curly journal on this site!
