    I oil when wet (directly after a wash) and then I oil the ends every or every other day between washes (then it is dry).

    EDIT: When wet, I oil it after I have had it in towel.

    I put it on my hair when damp, typically, although I sometimes oil before bed and brush with a BBB.

    It depends on the oil. If I'm oiling with jojoba, I oil when wet. Coconut oil, however, works best for me on dry hair.

    I use coconut oil when wet, and throughout the week when dry, I usually oil the end of my braid before bed.

    I voted for wet but i only oil just before my hair is completely dried out. Usually there's a bit of damp at my nape. I spread it out with comb, let the moisture redistribute, then oil lightly. My goal is to trap the moisture in my hair at just the right moment.

    Once I under oiled, and the next day my hair was dry and fussy. I ran my comb under the faucet and combed gently to re-water my hair (only a little bit), let it set a couple of minutes absorb the water where it wanted, then re-oiled. This seems to work well for me.

    If I oiled while it's dripping, I wouldn't get such even coverage because I can't separate the strands.

    And while oiling while bone dry still helped my hair, trying to seal in the moisture seems to give me the most beneficial effects.

    When they are dry....Because if i oil my hair when they are wet then my hair feels sticky plus i dont like putting my hair up when they are wet because of the breakage therefore i wait for them to dry...

    I only oil after I have washed my hair, when it is wet.
