Thanks for the input! I actually went and got my hair cut a few days ago and told my hair dresser what I did. She was impressed with my results and how soft my hair was (almost too soft, it kept slipping out from her fingers a she was cutting)! Anyways, I told her I used 2-3 oz and she said my hair would need 1.5 oz, at most. So, next time, I will alter my technique and see how it goes.
