I personably do LI, then oil, then gel.

I seal with different things - jojoba oil, SM elixir, but my HG is mineral oil. My hair is pretty porous so I lose a lot of moisture. When I use MO, it helps hold moisture in, keeps tangles at bay (my nape can be RIDICULOUS), and hold excess humidity out (when that applies!)

I have no issues with build-up, even when co-washing. I do clarify occasionally, and I use low-poo once a week, but I never notice any issues.

I just do a few drops onto very wet hair. My hair is long and dense, but I use 3-5 drops on my nape, and then 3-5 more on my ends. (of course some moves up the hair shaft when I apply gel, I'm sure.)

Sometimes it helps to mix the oil with a little LI, just so it's thicker and easier to see where I'm puting it.

I use the same "system" no matter what type of oil I'm using.
