^^^ I do not cowash, I soak my hair, condition, then reapply my LI. This is my daily routine until wash day, (day 5 or 7). I believe water/moisture is permeating the hair, (and small molecule proteins as well), despite the cones...however, I agree the cone may just be disrupting the butter or oil sealer. What may be happening, is the oil/butter sealer is prohibited from absorbing/adsorbing into the hair and causes the barrier that prohibits water/moisture intake. I find I have to be real careful adding oil to my coney leave ins. It works better for me if I add some oil to dry hair, later that day; this way, when I re-wet, the oil is forced into my hair during my shower allowing for better cone dispersion for more coverage on day 2/3 hair.

Whew! I'm not sure I'm understanding myself now! Ha! What are ur thoughts?
