End of oil rinsing?

Just a quick conclusion on my oil rinsing trials. I’m en route to France for my summer holiday, so am updating from my phone:

Likes:
❤Shine
❤Slip/ detangling ease
❤Softness
❤Awesome day 1 hair
❤My hair feels stronger
❤Less shedding

Dislikes:
💔Frizzy hair by day 3
💔 Requires me to re-moisturize my hair twice before my next wash day (vs not at all or once)
💔 Dull appearance by day 3

Will I try (reverse) oil rinsing again? If yes, will I make it part of my regimen?

I will definitely try reverse oil rinsing again. However, it won’t be a weekly part of my regimen. Perhaps I’ll do it once per month or once every other month. I won’t exclude it entirely, as I think it has some great benefits. However, weekly oil rinses are too much for my low porosity hair.

So I’ll continue with my regular routine (see my regimen) and throw this in the mix occasionally.

Last night I simply co-washed my hair and rinsed out all conditioner. Followed that with KCKT, 8-10 big twists (didn’t seal or add any oil). I took them down this morning. They were a bit damp, but I had a train to catch. In any case, I did notice my hair felt stronger, softer and looked somewhat shinier than my pre-oil rinsing hair… Not sure if that’s due to my prior trials with the oil or not…

That’s all for now! Looking forward to a relaxing holiday. Hoping for a little seaside humidity, my hair seems to thrive in that kind of climate.

Any fun vacation plans for the summer?

  1. I’m also done with oil rinsing, I also tried your reverse oil rinsing method..maybe it works better on high-po naturals 😦 shucks..

    on the brighter side tho! No oil rinsing, less time spent on wash day! 😀

  2. I realized that I was low-po after having sealed my hair with a shea/pil mix (Naptural’s recipe) for months and wondering why my hair was getting duller and frizzier. One day I pre-pooed with an oil mix before washing and my hair was instantly transformed. I now try to do this on a weekly basis and my hair still loves it. I wonder if oil-rinsing is similar to sealing out moisture.
