    Coconut oil and olive oil are amazing.. You can do a pre poo with them

    My hair does not like oils. Neither does any other part of me.

    You may still want to try coconut oil. I thought it would be heavy, but it's not at all. Not like olive oil or whatever. It's very thin and is actually solid until you melt it in your hands. Try a tiny bit on a section of you hair maybe? Or just mix some with your fave condish?


    As for conditioners - are you wanting moisture? I find Shea moisture mask very good! And it's not very heavy, at least IMO.

    Oh! And do you do protein? If so, sometimes a PT before your DT helps with the weighing down factor.

    I recommend GVP k-pak from Sally's!

    Where does one get coconut oil? Is there a grade of this for hair, or do I get it in the supermarket?

    I get a good price per jar at Sprouts (a health food store). Btw, if you don't want to have the coconut scent in your hair, get refined coconut oil. The UNrefined oil will have a strong, but pleasant! :), coconut smell.

    I bought mine from drugstore.com, but walgreens.com had it, too, so maybe you can get it in the store there?

    And I pre-poo with it, so the smell doesn't last! ;) (plus the one I use isn't very strong in smell.)

    From Sally's
    GVP The Conditioning Balm
    very moisturizing. I use it as rinse out, leave in or leave it on for an extended period, wrap in a towel and get a deep treatment.

    coconut oil-I've purchased it from amazon, drugstore.com, etc. Some walmarts have it. Many supermarkets have it. Check with the oils, the health food section, and by the popcorn.
    Honey is also worth a shot. My hair loves it mixed with conditioner:love10:, but it doesn't work for everyone.

    Oh yes! I use the GVP cb as well - mixed with honey and olive oil for a dt, sometimes a tad of acv too.

    I'm using bananas and olive oil. Since you arent a fan of oil, add as much or as little as you want, blend, strain, and apply. Oh and avocado. That makes it creamy and adds protein l. It's natural, smells amazing, and leaves my hair soft and amazing. I have 4-whatever hair, but my mom doesn't and it works for her too.
