1 Week Post Coconut Oil

My hair feels soooooo much better without coconut oil! I also noticed that there’s a lot less hair shed. I’ve been using straight JBCO. I forgot I had that until someone mentioned it. I had to resurrect mine. JBCO is much heavier than my usual olive oil, but my hair needed it after the coconut oil week.

I can’t say that all things are equal though because I didn’t blowdry my hair this past week as I did the week I used coconut oil, so maybe that helped also.

I also changed gels. I used Fantasia IC gel instead of Eco Styler gel and I haven’t had any breakouts along my hairline so I’m happy about that.

My style hasn’t changed. I’m still wearing my textured bun. It’s been too hot and humid for anything else. I guess I won’t be straightening my hair anytime soon either.

  1. I know I’m like stupid late commenting on this but I guess I am the only one that still uses coconut oil as a sealant lol. I was using JBCO while transitioning but when I went natural it set my scalp on fire! Idk why but my scalp was dry and itchy even though my hair was still moisturized. So I use regular coconut oil as a sealant and vatika oil as a pre poo.

    • Well castor oil is a skin irritant, so that could be why. I usually avoid getting any oils directly on my scalp since my scalp is so sensitive.
