    None! My sebum does just fine. I'll consider it if I think my hair really needs it.

    I do an overnight oil treatment with warm mustard oil whenever I wash my hair. I've been doing this since I was a teen. This is a tried and tested technique from my mom who has very pretty TBL hair. I usually use extra extra oil and wash twice to get it all out, but it leaves my hair soft and shiny

    When I realize I'm having trouble getting a comb through comfortably, I'll oil it anywhere from a bit to generously. It's kind of like cooking with garlic. I measure with my heart! My hair is up in a bun of some sort nearly 100% of the time, so I'm no worse for wear when I go heavy.

    For a pre poo I do a heavy oiling.
    After wash my oil for LOC is about half a teaspoon. It May seem a lot but my curly hair needs it. Thereafter third day after wash for daily maintenance just a sheen on my hand and I section different area to help balance and distribute it throughout my hair.

    I use about a tablespoon of coconut oil in my hair the day before i shampoo. I then put about a teaspoon of caster oil in my hair after i'm done washing. I'll put oil in my hair anytime it starts feeling like it needs it, if it'd days before i plan to wash i'll probably only put in a half tablespoon at a time.

    Recently, since is it now a mild winter where I live, I have been massaging lightly Castor Oil at the roots of my scalp to see if it will encourage more hair. I mix it with a lighter Jojoba oil so that it spreads easier, but use just a little. I never mind the length of my hair, it is always long enough, but what I am concerned with is the natural loss of hair due to age. We shall see the results in maybe six months! Hope it works, because this is more of a natural remedy.
    On the other hand, keeping my long hair soft, silky and shiny, do try adding a couple of Tablespoons of Honey to your hair condition. You will notice the difference.

    I always put several drops x2(I divide my hair in half) on damp hair after washing. Then I add a couple drops x2 of a mineral oil based hair oil. After it's dry I'll add a couple more drops to it before braiding for the day. Before bed I'll take my makeup off with coconut oil and spread the extra over my hair before washing. So lots of oil I guess lol

    Several drops of jojoba oil on damp hair length after washes, and then as needed (or not needed, so then I won't use it) on dry hair (the ends at least) until my next wash.

    A couple drops on the midlengths + ends each day. Pre-wash scalp oiling with The Innate Life rosemary treatment twice a week.
