Overconditioned

I used way to much (several pumps) DB Pumpkin Seed conditioner yesterday and followed today by using DevaCurl No-Poo and (several pumps ) One conditioner and topped that off with a small amount of AG Re:coil.

The Deva and Recoil haven't given me any problems before so I would assume it started with the DB.

I've been reading how to fix the over conditioning but what I'm concerned about now is not doing it again.

So my question is how much conditioner (amount/size) do you use? My hair is abit past shoulder length and I would say medium density.

I like your thread title ---- funny.

I use a good healthy palmful, but I rinse almost all of it out. I have fine 2b hair, though, so get weighed down easily.

Hmmm.

Would some kind of vinegar or baking soda rinse help?

I'm not sure either; the smell always got to me (I just leaned my head back in the shower and poured it over).
I am no help because I am horribly over conditioned right now. But I was using like three palm fuls of conditioner.
Here's what helped when I was OC'd

-sulfate wash
-ACV rinses (dilute the ACV with water)
-protein treatments (repeated)
-wearing my hair straight for a few days

I found the ACV and PTs helped most.

So glad you've been having some good results. I had to learn the hard way that these things do not fix themselves overnight. =)
