Coconut Oil

Has anybody used this before? I just tried it as a sealer under my leave-in conditioner this morning. Will it help with curl definition and frizz?

    I used coconut oil almost every day. I generally put it on before I go to bed as a leave-in moisturizer, but sometimes I will smooth it over frizzy parts during the day. It's great for both of those things, but I don't think it has made a difference for definition.

    rinse out: tresseme naturals
    leave-in: giovanni direct leave-in

    I use it in my weekly DT. I've used olive oil too, but I think coconut oil has more protein and I like to throw some into my otherwise protein-less hair regimen. My hair always feels soft and moisturized afterward.

    I don't know that it would help with curl definition (clumping maybe), but I think it could help with frizz.

    Lavender oil or coconut oil definitely reduces the frizz, while conditioning your curly hair and protecting it against sun damage.

    So the coconut oil worked out very well. I put in some leave in conditioner and then scrunched the coconut oil in afterwards. My hair was sooo shiny all day with no frizz and defined curls. however i think I put too much oil in because i had the "wet look" all day. so next time i'm going to put less in.
