    First, try to avoid the scalp. But if youre going to put anything on your scalp, oil is best to use during a scalp massage.
    But be sure to wash it out with shampoo, typically one doesnt use oil on the scalp unless its a pre poo treatment.

    Generally though, for mositure and "softness" I use conditioner. I use oil as ROO during my shower which softens the hair a lot.
    but in general, getting a proper moisture protein balance, usually makes the hair a lot softer.

    I agree. I only use oil on the scalp, and conditioner I just apply on the surface on the hair.

    Do you always use the same wash routine? I find that I have to clarify about once every 2 months. Also, if I wash with shampoo all the time my ends get really dry. If I don't have the patience to oil my hair prior to shampooing, I'll alternate every other wash with a CO wash and a normal shampooing. Another thing to look into are ACV or vinegar or citric acid rinses.

    My hair hates conditioners which sounds really weird.i tried many brands and still conditioners cause breakage.on the other hand,my hair loves oil,rosewater,rosemary and rice water rinses.

    Both, because I use them for different things. Conditioner in the shower, oil at other times.

    I usually use CWC-- the length of my hair gets conditioner, the scalp gets shampoo. Then I do my regular condition after that. I almost never use shampoo on my length.

    Nothing really to add here, but that gif is hilarious! And I agree, that movie's the bomb.

    My scalp has been super dry on the front portion near the hairline so I've been putting conditioner on that part of my scalp while I shower and it's doing better since then but I'm still experimenting. But in general I would avoid the rest of your scalp just in case in causes increased hair shedding
