Do you use leave-in? I coat mine in leave-in when it's soaking wet and then plop. I think right now I'm using Garnier Triple Nutrition DC on my ends and the parts exposed to surface air and Beautiful Curls Leave-in and Detangler (the one for "babies and up"-it's really light
) on the rest. It gets sort of heavy and congealed if I don't do it when really wet, though. I think I sort of have to let the excess conditioner get patted out.
