My very fine hair needs a light oil.  Jojoba works very well for me.  I've tried EVOO and found it to be waaaaay too heavy - it left my hair stringy and greasy.

I have used EVOO with some success (less is better!)  and also use Africa's Best Ultimate Herbal Oil. I have 2a/f/ii hair.

Since my hair is still not quite down to my shoulders, I haven't used oil yet.  I make sure to condition well and often, and so far my hair seems happy.  Smiley   Probably by this coming summer I shall have started to use oil.  As my hair is mostly fine, I'll first try jojoba oil.

For whatever reason, my PM's aren't working, so let's see if this actually lets me post...  Angry

I use a special oil mixture on the very ends of my hair only. It consists of water, baby oil & aloe vera gel. Works great if the ratios are right, but I have to keep adding water periodically or the balance is off.

I don't use oil that often. But when I do, I use either jojoba or almond oil with a few drops of jasmine or lavender EO.
I have just recently acquired my first tin of shea butter and used it last night. I am now awaiting the results of that first experimental use.

Although I surely don't qualify for Very Long Locks

I use oil on my scalp an hour before or sometimes the night before I'm going to wash.  I alternate with Banyan Botanicals' Brahmi or Bhringaraj, which are herbs in organic sesame oil and Nature's Gift stimulating scalp massage oil which contains a blend of cedarwood, lavandin, rosemary and thyme in grapeseed & jojoba oils.
In general I don't oil my ends, with winter coming I may use LouiseMarie Longhairs' Bliss Butter Balm just on the ends of my piggy braids when I sleep the night before a wash.

i had been using jojoba for years until i recently finally got the courage to order some virgin coconut (my s/o really hates artificial coco perfumes and was expecting the real stuff to be equally nasty). well, i really love it. it's supposed to be heavier than jojoba but strangely both my skin and hair absorb it far better so i risk less to end up with greasy hair - which i do tend to have easily with jojoba! but it's apparently tricky to use as a treatment, far harder to wash out than jojoba. the smell is fine too (the s/o doesn't complain) and it doesn't linger at all if you don't overoil.

Funny that you mention that about jojoba oil.  I find too much leaves my ends greasy too.  When I use camellia oil or babassu oil that doesn't happen.  Also the fractionated coconut oil works fine also. Cool

my hair is classic and 1b-f/m-ii. I use coconut oil.....but not very often  Grin I'm laaaaaaaazy! I mostly use oil before I wash and let it soak in.  It works better for me this way and it doesn't matter if I use too much!

I prefer to put the oil on my scalp and just the ends of the braided pigtails I sleep in and wash out the oil the next day.

I never put oil in my hair for the day.

I use an aromatherapy mixture which I make up myself. Basically I make a pomade with beeswax, almond oil and essential oils of my choice, although you dont have to scent it as it has a lovely honey fragrance anyway. You dont need much at all. Just play with measurements until you have a consistency you like (melt together in bain marie and let cool slightly before adding essences then leave to set.) I also have some lovely pure colour gold mica which I add to it sometimes which gives it a lovely golden shimmer. So yes, I picked 'other' in the poll.  Smiley

I use shea butter blended with orange essential oil, lavender or rosemary, depending on what I have at the time.  Currently I'm using orange.  I find it absorbs well into my hair, but I think it would probably be too heavy for finer hair.  I think it is lighter than EVOO though.

It depends.  I've used EV Olive oil, Jojoba, Coconut, and Grapeseed.  Lately I've been using grapeseed and a brand called Doo Gro.

I have thick curly hair, but it stays straight just by combing it with a horn comb while wet and applying leave in conditioner.

Cheers,
Ryan

My hair is fine, but there's a lot of it.  I use sweet almond oil.  It's a tad heavier than jojoba, but not as heavy as say, coconut.  Love it.  I use it on my hair ends, face, and legs after I shave.  It's been a Godsend.  My dry hair and skin just drink it up.  Can't wait to try it this winter!
