Thanks for the replies…the info is really helpful.

Most times my hair is wet after a cowash when I apply the leave-in conditioner, and i usually mix it with just essential oils. I only use other products on subsequent days when I have to moisturise my hair daily.
I will definitely do the test to see if the mixture turns white on my palms.

I could change my conditioner but i wouldn't know what else to go for, I live in the UK and most products I have heard of are mostly sold in the US and I have no idea what else to use that is easily accessible here
