    Default Addicted to Oiling

    I tend to get addicted to new things fairly easily and my hair is my latest obsession. I've discovered oiling and have oiled my hair at least 3 times in the last week and a half.

    Should I do it only once a week or is it ok to oil so often.

    I started with olive oil but ordered coconut oil today and have it in my hair as we speak.

    I've even oiled my 10 year old daughters hair and she commented on how soft it was the next day - yey!

    It is ok to oil so often if your hair likes it

    Do it as often as you like, it's best to do it before every wash

    Oiling is one of the things that you can't overdo

    Yup, as Brownie points out, you can oil as much as you want, or more accurately....as often as your hair likes. At times i've kept my hair soaking in heavy oilings for months at a time and it only helped
    Oh, a word of warning.....the oiling obsession just gets worse! Trust me, i know lol

    Hey julliams: I am a new member like you, and my hair seems to enjoy the new thing oiling it as well. I imagine frequent heavy oiling can make me wash my hair more vigorously and more often to remove the excess oil.

    My own hair and scalp is naturally dryish, but I also wonder what is the reasonable frequency of heavy and smaller oil applications

    Me too! I am addicted to oiling and i found that i ended up washing my hair more than needed so i started oiling very little after every wash when my hair is wet. This doesn't make my hair really oily but still i get the benefits of my oil....

    My hair responds very well to oiling at home where the water is soft, but I'm visiting in a different state where the water is hard right now, and oil made my hair crunchy. Odd.

    Thanks chotee, that sparsely oil after washing looks like a good more permanent solution for me. Just I seem to need some extra oil before swimming, which I do fairly frequently.
