Oh I'm definitely not doing so, but the "oils&greases" companies say are good for the scalp typically have petroleum in them, I was just imagining the women trying go do better for by only cowashing but still using petroleum filled grease.

Plus there is a lot of quality information out there on YouTube and forums about being curly/ natural/ gentle on hair, especially by African American ladies. And an increasing number of higher quality natural haircare lines marketed especially at those with kinky coily hair.

I'm probably being over optimistic about what percentage really do read ingredients tho!

It's getting better now, but some still have horrible ingredients. And now to add insult to injury they cost way too much for the cheap ingredients they're using. SMH.

Anyway, I'd stay away from any heavy oil on my scalp if I wasn't going to lather up at least a few times a month.
