I bet the weight of all that hair wet could snap a neck!

lol @ snap a neck! I want to see her whip her hair back and forth! I bet she goes through a bottle of oil each time she does an oil rinse.

i'm confused. Do you pre-poo with oil then wash w. shampoo then put more oil? scratch
Which is better pre-pooing or doing an oil rinse?

in my understanding if you are person shampoos then you would do your oil rinse between the shampoo and conditioner stages. if you cowash you would do the oil rinse before. I was told that you do it before u condition. Correct me if i am wrong anyone else have a different take?

I thank everyone for replying to this thread. the oil rinses have been helping me with my dry hair greatly.

When I shampooed my hair almost two weeks ago, I put oil on dry hair, let it sit, then shampoo and condition. When I co-washed late last week, I just did the oil and co-wash.

I'm curious what others do too.

QUESTIONS:

How do you know when you have enough oil on the hair?
How much oil should I be using?
How are you applying it?

Oil rinses is the last process in my washing routine..it goes in this order
1.shampoo
2.DC
3. rinse out DC
4.Oil rinse
Im not sure how much oil to apply..I just slather a good amount on with my hands massage my hair and scalp for a few seconds and then rinse it out

After mixing and gently warming my oil, I apply it with my hands until I know my hair is covered. I cover my hair with a plastic cap and leave it on until I'm ready to shampoo or co-wash. I dont know if I have a specific amount, but I do make sure I part my hair four ways to make sure my hair is saturated.

I feel as long as your hair is saturated in the oil from root to tip you should be good to get the full effect. You can use the oil of your choice some use a combo of stuff like EVOO EVCO Castor etc.

This is how i used it before
1. Rinse (or shampoo) your hair
2. Coat in your favorite oil (I've used olive, jojoba, castor, meadowfoam, dabur alma, and aphogee EFA oil, red palm oil/butter--- my favorite is an amla, castor mix)
3. Rinse with warm/hot water
4. Apply conditioner
5. Rinse with cool/cold water
6. Apply leave-in
7. Seal

From the information i get is that you run a little condition after to ensure that you get some of the oil out of the hair. everything else is just a prepoo, hot oil treatment, oil wash.

Here are a couple of links that may help a little better

This is from one of the blogs of a curly on this site

I do it a little differently...
When its a Co-Wash week I...
1. Oil Rinse
2. Co-Wash
3. Leave-In

When its a Shampoo week I ...
1.Oil Rinse
2.Shampoo
3.Oil Rinse

lol.... I think it depends on the porousity (err on the spelling) confused
My hair is 4c with superbly dry ends.... And it soaks up conditioner and moisturizers like they are water... So when I do it this way, my hair is soft and sooooooo manageable ...It works for me Smile

I did an oil rinse with castor oil a few days ago and my hair loved it! I'm definitely adding it to the rotation. I did shampoo, oil rinse, DC.
