    Default When do you oil your hair?

    I've been putting oil in my hair when I get out of the shower before I put it up. I was wondering if this was a common practice. I don't put a lot...just a drop and it seems to help calm my frizzies and make my hair more smoothable and able to be put up.

    I voted for "when wet" because there wasn't an option that fit me perfectly. What I do it wait for my hair to air dry until it is "just a bit damp" - then I oil it.

    When dry. If I oil wet my hair acts like there is a ton of buildup on it.

    I prefer dry. And that too the next day mostly. If too much oil in my hair, its very lank and lifeless i feel.

    I voted when wet, even if I just mist it a bit. If I oil dry it doesn't soak in very well for me.

    I don't use straight oil, but I use my shea butter conditioning cream (with coconut oil in it) most often on the ends after I get out of a shower. On occasion, though, if my hair is REALLY dry, I load it full of the shea cream when dry, then shower, then apply a bit more afterwards. This is pretty rare, though, maybe once every 3-4 months.

    Yes, oil my hair when it's still wet. It keeps moisture.
