I just figured it out this week...it's been making my hair very dry 
I'm so sad because oil is supposed to be a staple in natural hair care
(i've tried jojoba, evoo, almond oil, coconut oil, and many others)
What are some things you've noticed your hair hates that is popular in the natural hair community?

I've started sealing with aloe vera gel now and so far so good

What about Shea butter? Does your hair respond well to that?

Maybe there is protein in the oil you use that could be making your hair dry. That happened to a friend of mine with coconut oil

Have you tried a heavy oil to seal like castor oil?



I can't do grape seed oil unless I'm applying heat. Way too drying.

Oil only makes my hair feel weird if I don't use anything else with it.
You're using a moisturizer right?

i do the loc method yes...shea butter worked for me for a few months but now (i don't know if it's because of the dry winter weather) it's just making my hair dry..

i don't do protein treatments on my hair ever, i just moisturize. I also  wash and deep condition (once a week)

I was looking online and a lot of women experience the same thing, their hair hates oil

Does your hair feel better when you only use moisturizer though?
