Thanks for the advice good advice, Yomaku :-)
The only way i seem to get oil to have an aestheticly pleasing effect on my hair is by diluting it and spritzing it over my hair. Working the oil into my semi-straight hair makes it really flat. Washing out the oil afterwards just reverts my hair back to its natural state: soft fluffy wisps that seem to channel static electricity from all 13 dimensions :-D
My hair is actually very fine and porous. I know that advertisements and websites all portray porosity as a sign of damage which might be prevented / cured by applying exotic oils in generous quantities. However; a friend of mine finally told me one day that the information which i was using was all aimed at Caucasian hair. She told me that in hair advice for African hair, the natural porosity of one's hair is considered and that in the case of naturally porous hair, oil is advised to be used very sparingly if at all. Hence my current use of oil.
Of course I would like to keep my hair and the rest of me as healthy as possible but i have learned from my no-poo experience that less is not always more. From Mohlapa (my friend) i have learned that more is not always better. My desire is to find out what is worth quitting and what is not.
Even if the "Devine Light" ;-) shampoo cures my astigmatism and opens all my chakras, i would be willing to use a slightly less divine shampoo if it rendered more aestheticly pleasing results for my hair.
BTW, where is your hair at nowadays, Yomaku?
