    Excellent! I'm just about to try this and I'm hoping you can say more about how you pre-poo. Do you rub it into your scalp? Or only on the ends? How long do you leave it on before pooing? Overnight? Or less? Do you have any tips or techniques? So glad this is working for you, and I hope to learn from your experience!

    how i prepoo; i divide my hair in 6 sections already finger detangled(very thick), then i sprit it with some water, add the oil generously to ends and scalp. i finish by addind my cheapest conditioner and braiding each section. fianlly i just use a plastic bag for 1 to 2 hrs(whatever works for you), then i shampoo while my hair is still in braids to reduce all the oily build up. hope this helped.

    Coconut oil works for me. It cut down on shedding during wash day.
    Last relaxer October 9,2012. My goal is to transition for as long as possible.

    I'm excited to hear about other using the coconut pre-poo. I have had twist for the past 2.5 month and am ready to take my hair loose..

    Shea moisture curl enhancing line has a deep conditioner that has coconut oil in it. As a matter of fact that whole line has coconut oil in it.

    Are you ladies using refined organic or UN refined organic? I've purchased the unrefined. Just wondering if there was a difference in benefits or usage?

    I use organic coconut oil that I got from fresh and easy. I part my hair in the 6 sections (as the lady said above), spritz water on each section, saturate my hair with the oil & some whatever conditioner, two strand twist & leave a shower cap on for an 1hr or 2 while watching one of my FAV shows. Shampoo and condition and style as desired. I have also left it in over night as well and then have done the washing in the morning. It depends on how much buildup you have in your hair. But I love the coconut oil. It has done wonders for my hair! (:
