Jas my hair is very very porous. I end up applying conditioner while my hair is drying. Ill apply conditioner in sections...tons! Then plop and after about a 20 min plop ill let my hair down to dry. As it drys my hair will fuzz a little where my hair sucked all the conditioner so ill smooth a tiny bit on and repeat as necessary. I also notice I might need a little more conditioner by the end of the day and in the am for 2nd day hair.
Might sound like a hassle but honestly I love it more then any gel I've tried. Conditioner gives me steady results where gel is hit or miss.
