Umm not exactly sure what I would classify my LI as. I'd probably say it's somewhere in the middle (not as heavy as Tresseme naturals but not as light as VO5).
I was using a light conditioner before I switched to what I use now (L'Oreal eversleek) and I found I had to use a ton of product to make sure my hair didn't get those little flyaways during the day. I tend to avoid heavy conditioners simply because it weighs my hair down and than I have to wash my hair more often (since I use a LI everyday). Mostly, I just experimented until I found something I liked lol
