For me, yes, absolutely - whatever brand/type product(s) I'm using. Part of the reason I always hate my hair when anyone else tries to "do" it is that they always apply product to just damp hair, and then it won't do anything at all - and what it does do isn't good, LOL! Mine needs product applied quickly right out of the shower.
