Okay, that's really interesting. I remember back before I was cone free I tried Pantene relaxed and natural conditioner and my hair hated it! This conditioner contains (contained, not sure if they still make it?) castor oil, and my hair had that same coated/dry tangled feeling. I think you are on to something! Sometimes it's just as useful to find out what ingredients my hair hates as it is to find out what it loves 😊 Thanks! Luckily for me, it seems like castor oil isn't that common an ingredient in most products?
If you don't mind, can you tell me what products you got rid of that contained it so I avoid them?
Again, thanks for the tip!

Just read before you use anything.
