Over-conditioning - hmm, quite possible. Sometimes I get great results from a light conditioner, like Yes to Tomatoes. And last week I shampood with a coco betaine and got great results. So confusing! So, should I alternate my conditioners? CurlyIndianGirl, I clip up my hair for volume, and so if I did not apply a gel roght over CK, or mix them together (did you ever try that?) my hair would be about 25% dry and I would not be able to do a thing with it at that point. I dont apply products to soaking wet hair, but it is blotted, and I think if I did apply to soaking wet hair, nothing would absorb.
