I have found my favorite oil! Coconut oil. My hair loves all things coconut. So I bought some coconut oil. OMG love this stuff. I used it to reduce some frizz which when combined with get worked like a charm. But it made restyling a breeze. No shed or broken hair.. Will definitely keep this in my hair regime.

    Congratulations! May I ask what's your hair type? I'm 3A and have a leave-in co that has C.O. and I like it a lot, but it also has shea butter so I'm not sure if it's the combo that does the trick. I use VCO (virgin coconut oil) to cook with and for my skin and have added it to a cheap coconut co, I also have a gel that has coconut milk in it which I love so I've been wondering if maybe I should put the VCO directly on my hair... In the past I used to do an overnight DT with an Indian herb infused C.O. but it's been a very long time since I've used it that way...

    How much amount did you use? I have a feeling I have fine hair and I worry it will weight it down. I use it for prepoo though and I actually like it a lot.

    It all depends on the condition of your hair. When mine was less porous than it's right now (I've stripped and colored a few times in the last 2 months...) I had to go easy with the oils, except this winter, and now my mostly fine hair seems to soak them up without looking oily or getting weighed down.

    If you have "virgin" hair you could try adding just a bit to your CO or rubbing a little in your palms and scrunching it on your hair and see how that works.
