Best advice from Hollywood's well known hairstylist in the 80's once said: "Keep foods in your mouth and hair products on your hair."
Spray your hair with a mixture of conditioner & water. FINGER COMB. Done!
"You find people oiling hair every single day, the hair sweats and it doesn’t get washed. What do you think happens? It goes limp and becomes thin because it is not breathing,” Shamillah Mohammed, a hairstylist at SUQA, says.
Example from YA!: “Coconut oil dried and made my hair fall out? But I want to use it again, a few months ago I bought coconuts and extracted the oil from them at home and used the oil on my hair, after washing my hair it felt dry (but generally oils make my hair drier) and it made my hair fall in long strands while washing it out (but I have to say that I was losing a lot of hair at the time before using the oil).”
People with very healthy hair NEVER use oil on their hair.
Washing less often, builds the natural oil your hair needs, to get them smoother, shinier, silkier, softer. Man-made products are just temporary, until you wash them again, and at the same time washing off the natural oil your hair NEEDS. Hair products just absorb on your hair if they're dry, like a sponge.
I know hair. My hair was permed down to my waist, and I finger comb when it's damp, and I NEVER have that problem.
