    Ditto. If I have more time on my hands I'll mix up some other oils (castor, jojoba, almond) w/ my olive oil and do an overnight hot oil treatment.

    I need to try this. I have used olive oil as a hot oil treatment. I did not know it can get rid of shed hairs. Interesting!

    Thats what I do. I prepoo with evoo and get rid of shed hairs via finger detangling or wide tooth comb and cowashig/washing is a breeze.
  • forbeeforbee Posts: 441Registered Users
    Yeah, I do use olive oil. In addition to its benefits in detangling, it prevents my hair from being a dry hard mess after the wash.

    I tried it 1x but it didn't do too well for me:sad8:. But I think I will try it again as a night before wash hot oil treatment.

    I think that might yeild better results.

    Thanks for the tip!

    Yep! It makes your strands extra slippery so those pesky shed hairs can slide right on out. :thumbup:

    Last night a spritz my hair with water and conditioner until it was somewhat damp, and put on a mix of jojoba oil an evoo... I co-washed this morning it was super easy to detangle. I was afraid it would leave my hair all greasy, but that didnt happen... it was just perfect...
    Almost 6 years natural, and NOW I'm taking care of my hair. Shame on me :angry3::angry3:

    3c mixed with 3b ends because of heat damage.

    Fine, low porosity

    My hair is in love with protein, EVOO and Coconut Milk!

    Experimenting with new produtos almost everyweek :sunny:

    I recently used it as a hot oil treatment before I shampooed and I loved it! It reallyhelp me get rid of shed hairs and the detangling was much easier.

    This will become a definite part of my routine!

    I like using olive oil in the shower to get rid of shed hairs, or as a hot oil treatment the night b4 (thats basically a prepoo).
  • IndeedIndeed Posts: 72Registered Users
    If I did that, my hair would be a nightmare. I can't just slap oil on my hair as a pre-shampoo treatment and call it a day, that is, unless I want dry, greasy, and tangled straws. Hot oil treatments are one of the worst things I could ever do to my hair, so I'll gladly do without them. Adding oils to conditioner, on the other hand, is boss. I love it. But oil by itself, for me, means dry dry hair.

    I used to prepoo with EVOO but I don't anymore because I started washing my hair in the evenings.
