Does anybody ever use coconut oil as a leave in?

Just something I'm trying today. I'd like to know if anyone else has done so.

    yeah you mean instead of a condish? one time i used it before my condish leave in and it was pretty bad.

    I've been using it as a leave in for the bottom section of my hair for months. I love the results, it does a very good job of stopping my hair from frizzing and leave its soft and touch able.

    You don't need much though!

    I wasn't willing to commit it seems so I used a quarter size EVCO and a quarter size KCKT. But it worked great! :walk:I think I'll it again just oil.

    I have. I do like it... it's a bit tricky to get the amount right. Too much can be no bueno and it's easy to overdo. It's also hard to get even coverage which is why i now prefer leave-ins now that I've discovered them. But it's certainly not bad!

    I have, in the heat when I'll be outside a lot that day. Keeps my hair soft, helps with the frizz, and has some sun protection. I still need some SPF on my scalp/part, which I'll have to wash out later - and that coconut oil helps the washing out from being drying! (I do use a cone-free SPF, tho! ;) )


    I find I can only use EVCO as a LI/Refresher/sealer, whatever (where it will be left in my hair) in the warmer months. If it's cool enough for it to go back to solid my hair looks awful!

    I will use a dime of that with a dime of LI and a few drops of MO to seal, tho! I have just started doing that again recently since its been warm enough.

    I do find EVCO refreshes my curls well, but of course they end up greasy. Lol! Wish there was a way around that! ;)

    I have used EVCO as a leave in under gel, it works great for me. I get a wonderful amount of shine and softeness after I scrunch out the gel cast.

    Note: I often use too much and will get an oily neck and chest! LOL

    I use it as a deep conditioner, and I already think then that it is very greasy so I would not use it as leave in

    A lot of oils have a tendency to leave my hair oddly dry and awful feeling. One of the only oils I can use is coconut oil and I do sometimes use a small and it works well. Generally, I prefer it to be mixed with something else, though.
