    Coconut oil to length only.
    Natural sebum for scalp.

    I regularly use coconut oil on my scalp, to combat seborrheic dermatitis. I massage it in and leave it at least 20 minutes before shampooing.

    I regularly oil my scalp and length the day before shampoo with coconut oil. During the rest of the week I dab a bit of coconut oil on my ends

    I don't oil and until I came to LHC I had never heard of doing so, but I am thinking of starting. My hair is quite dry and frizzy naturally and could use help.

    BTW, Teazel your hair is amazing! I would love to have mine look like that one day!

    I oil my length almost daily and my scalp with massage a few times a week. I use more oil with scalp massage, then braid overnight before a CO wash when I have extra time.

    I regularly oil my length with a mixture of coconut oil (10&#37, broccoli seed oil (20%) and argan oil (70%). I make it up in a 10ml bottle and it lasts me for months, I only use a smear on the palms of my hands.

    I oil my length the day before I shower, and oil the ends whenever they feel a little dry. My scalp produces quite enough sebum on its own to keep m scalp from getting dry, just not enough to get it down my stubby length.
