    I usually oil my hair when it is dry as my pre-wash treatment but sometimes I apply it to slightly damp hair.

    Most of the time I oil right after I CO while my hair is still drippy wet.
    But, I also oil between CO's to tame frizzies.

    I do both, after a wash, just on the ends...And in-between length washes, I do oil the ends of my tassle...Who would have thought my hair likes oil as much as it does.

    If I oil it damp, it tends to spread too far up my hair and just sit for days... I can control it more when it's dry. I oil further up as a pre-wash treatment as well.

    I oil my ends on towel dried/damp hair. I was using coconut oil only, now currently using a mixture of coconut oil/grapeseed oil (have not noticed a difference)

    I voted when wet, but I am another one who actually waits until my hair is almost dry, but still damp.

    So, I wash once or twice a week, and I oil when it's still damp. Then I put Fox's Shea creme on the ends. The next day, while my hair is dry, I put on more Shea. If, between washes, I feel like my hair needs more oil, I spritz my hair first and then apply the oil. The day before I wash again, I oil my hair rather heavily and put it in braids or buns to let the oil absorb . . . I might do this wet or dry, I'm still working out which method is best.

    But mostly, I oil damp hair, and spritzing dry hair with water prior to oiling counts as damp.

    I oil my semi damp hair before I put it in a updo & on dry hair before I put it in a braid at bedtime.

    I usually oil my hair when wet with coconut oil, but find that jojoba adds a little texture when I use it on my dry hair.

    These days, when I use oil, I use it on dry hair just before shampooing.

    Same here. I've tried oiling both wet and damp hair, and neither worked for me.

    I usually oil my hair in the evening, right before braiding or bunning my hair for the night.
