I seal on wash days and every three to four days if needed and depends on the style. I seal with coconut oil or grape seed oil. Olive oil is too heavy. If I do not seal my ends knots on top of knots will be on and dry hair.
I seal my ends with castor oil every 5-7 days (on wash day). If I'm wearing an "-out" style (braid-out, twist-out, etc), I seal my edges with castor oil daily.
I seal my leave-in with either sweet almond oil, Oyin Handmade Sugar Berries pomade or olive oil on wash day. I retwist or rebraid every 3 days and then I seal the ends with either Oyin Handmade's Berries or Jane Carters Nourish and Shine. Getting ready to try sealing with Carols Daughter Honey Mimosa Pomade and see how that stacks up to Oyin Handmade is my favorite sealant for wash days and throughout the week.
The amount of times I seal varies from week to week. I just listen to my hair, and give it what it needs. I wash my hair every Sunday and seal with jojoba oil. If my hair is feeling dry, during the week i lightly spray water on my ends and seal with jojoba oil. If my hair is feeling moisturized on a particular day, I simply skip the sealing process all together.
