      Hi, You can use plain coconut oil in the hair without washing it out, only thing is your hair might look oily if you use a lot. Just a few drops will work well without making your hair greasy. I don't recommend coconut oil + castor oil as the oil as it is very sticky and castor oil also has a smell, I would prefer to use it as a pre-shampoo treatment…
