I use a spray-on, leave-in b/c it tends to not weigh down my hair. Usually I will spray it into my hair (concentrating on the ends) and then take a wide tooth comb and distribute it throughout.

I'm a curly-headed runner, triathlete and foodie! Sweat, chlorine, sun... my hair gets tortured by it for 8 to 10 hours each week. It somehow always manages to 'bounce' another day!
