    Default Coconut oil Damaging?

    I came across this interesting video about coconut oil damaging the hair.
    https://m.youtube.com/?reload=7&rdm=...?v=SkLCiEa_x3I

    Very interesting she promotes other oils like jojoba and Olive oil

    Coconut oil seriously gives me dry frizzy hair. According to this youtuber,coconut oil has a alkaline level.

    Now Olive oil leaves me with super soft shiny hair. According to her Olive oil is an acidic oil.

    I think coconut oil is fine before washing hair, then washing it out. But not leaving it in.

    I thought I'd share, I found it really interesting this hair science

    I wonder if that is why people including me experience crunchy hair with coconut oil, that would make sense.

    Please let me know if you have simular experience and your thoughts on this?
    Thanks

    Interesting. I've never found coconut oil to work well for my hair. I keep trying it after I read so many success stories about it, but each time it fails =p Maybe I'll try my jojoba oil again soon.

    Well the pH part is BS, I'm afraid. Only water based liquids can have a pH measured.

    I call BS too, coconut oil is a weak acid. I've tested it:

    26 (BSL), 27, 28, 29, 30 (WL), 31, 32 (HBL), 33, 34, [35], 35.5 (BCL), 36, 37(TBL), [38], 39, 40, 41 (CL), 42, 43, 44, 45, 46 (FTL, I can dream ) [ ] = Un-stretched [ ] = Stretched. Fairy tail ends & happy with them. Celebrating 5 years with no trims, S&D only. Goal: hair to look TBL by 30th bday.

    Having a quick nosey on Google Coconut oil seems to be popping up a 7.3 Ph level.

    I think coconut oil is alkaline. So many people get crunchy frizzy hair with coconut and not other oils.
    Coconut is not a protein,it just helps retain your hairs own protein from getting loss.
    So I wonder what causes the dry,frizzy crunch with coconut and not other oils?
