I'm sure there are many good ways to do the hot oil, but I just blowdried my hair after applying oil. My hair has been the smoothest in months.
I used grapeseed; but my cousin swears by almond or coconut.
So you don't need an oil specifically designed for hair?

oil suiting ur hair varies from person to person. u just have to try a few and see what suits u best.
i swear by castor or almond oil.
coconut is great but ive heard many ppl complain about dandruff.

those of you who always keep your long hair in a braid; i kind of have to wonder, what's the point of having long hair if you always keep it tied in a plait? I love having my long hair tumbling loose and free, i wear a braid or other up-dos every now and then but if you keep it in a braid every day why not just chop it off and have hair that you can actually wear down? I genuinely don't understand...??

^You think having your hair down is beautiful, but others think long braids are beautiful I've had many, many comments on my hair, and I nearly always keep it braided or in a high ponytail. Not all people want to wear their hair down, I certainly don't.

it's true, long braids are beautiful. I just thought people were saying that they kept it braided to keep it out of the way or avoid the hassle of having long hair, which made me wonder why they have their hair long in the first place. But i guess you're right, that makes sense!

I have to say, the quality of my long, frizzy, thick hair has improved significantly since I used masques everyday and let my hair air-dry. I think the heat was doing too much damage to it

^ Defenitely. I found out that the heat from the blow-dryer is actually causing nearly as much damage as a flat-iron used everyday! So, letting your hair air-dry is certainly the best idea.

I agree with letting your hair dry naturally, it's so much better for your hair, especially wavy or curly hair!

No. Use any natural oil which works for you.

I've long straight hair and if I do not wash it every day it looks so ugly. I hate it.

I put sometimes coconut oil on my hair-ends. I have the feeling that my hair looks shiny after that.

I've tried 100 of different shampoos, but none of them was good enough.

lemon/vinegar/citric acid rinse removes scaly buildup from soap or hard water and makes the cuticles lie flat, which makes hair silky and shiny and tangle-free. I dont even use conditioner any more.
