How to Use Coconut Oil for Naturally Black with Mixed Hair?

I’m Black and I have thick, dry, wavy/curly, natural hair which I wash once weekly. If I use the coconut oil after I wash it, can I leave it in for that week? And how often do I reapply during that week to not have a build up? Thanks.

Hi Erica,

Yes, you may leave the coconut oil on for that week. For thick hair, you probably can reapply the oil once a day during that week, and that should not lead to a build up.

Hope this helps,
