Conditioner every day? Suggestions?

So according to this website, if you have coarse/tight curls than less is better. I have very coarse 2C/3A hair and any sort of moisture makes it looks better. If I don't wash/condition every day my hair looks way too poofy/afroish. That being said, is it really that bad if I do condition my hair everyday? i have been on a nopoo "diet" for 2 weeks fyi. Also, I only have a leave in conditioner right now. Anyone got good brand suggestions for a daily/weekly conditioner (not leave in)? Thanks!
No I don't think its bad to condition everyday. But some people do experience over-conditioning but there hair was type 4. A conditioner I really love is Organix Macadamia Oil conditioner.
It look like this



It smells awesome and it makes my hair so soft. More than any other conditioner I've used.

Each head of hair is different so it's impossible to know with certainty what your personal limit is, in terms of how often to wash/condition. You have to experiment. And I recommend some of your experimentation include the use of a regular shampoo once in a while. With observation and over time you'll start to know what your hair needs. It's like your own car: you'll start to know when it's running smoothly and when there's something slightly wrong that should be checked into. I'll leave it to others to continue helping you with product suggestions/ techniques.

ETA: As it regards your complaint about your hair's "afro" and "poofy" appearance, if it feels healthy it may just be the glorious way your hair expresses itself, which means embracing your hair rather than fighting it.

I disagree because curls require moisture so if you have tighter curls then obviously you will require even more moisture (unless you are in desperate need of a protein application).

The rinse out conditioner depends on if you are going all natural, partial natural, or indifferent to conditioner types.

@Kork You will have to read what the original poster said about course hair not needing moisture. That's what I disagreed with.
Princeton, just would like to know: What did I say, specifically, that you disagree with? ... Or are you saying you're in disagreement with something the OP (or someone else on this thread besides me) said?

Ohhh ... got it I agree with you (and that website talked about in the first post) that less conditioner is NOT usually better for coarse/tight curls.

OP means Original Poster. Have a great night
