    Most of the time, I oil after I've washed my hair, when it's damp but not dripping. I also sometimes oil my hair dry, usually to detangle, sometimes for deep conditioning, but my standard routine oilings are all on damp hair.

    Default Sometimes wet, sometimes dry.

    When it's wet:

    I mix abour 3 rice grains of coconut oil or Ojon with about 3/4 tsp. of aloe gel. Then I smoothe it through my hair and comb well. Helps control frizz and define curl.

    When it's dry:
    I usually use a hair butter or straight coconut oil. I glaze my hands and put it on with the flats of my hands and comb well.

    I use oil on my ends whenever they need it, for example when they're dry. I oil the entire length once a week and then put it in a braid. The oil is extra helpful in that regard because it makes the hair easier to grip and I can make better braids. I'm probably going to start oiling my scalp via massages prior to showering.

    To be honest, I don't see the point in oiling while the hair/scalp is wet, since oil and water don't mix. I suppose once the water evaporates, the oil will do it's stuff.

    I voted for when it's wet.

    I oil my hair when it's damp, but I usually add oil on dry hair later.

    As it used to be

    Talking Re: When do you oil your hair?

    If I have to wash my hair two days in a row (hot, sweaty, dirty day for
    example) I oil on day two. Otherwise, I wash every other day until
    the weekend, and unless we are going somewhere, I just leave my hair
    alone in a bun for the weekend.

    Sundays are usually reserved for dry oiling, when I lay it on thick, comb
    through with Tangle-Teezer and bun it up until Monday morning.

    I've just started oiling this past month, and it seems to better on my hair when it's dry. For some reason, it looks like it's leaving a build-up when I do it wet.
