Wow, I'm glad to see all the new hits this topic is getting! i haven't been on NC.com for awhile (i'm in grad school...) but I have been experimenting!
I like to apply Co. like this: spread a thick layer all ofer the top of my hair,
then bend over and spread a thick layer underneath my hair, then massage it all around like a shampoo.
Happy experimenting! it is fun, isn't it?
