Drinking conditioner

No, it's not what you think! I've noticed talk on here lately of hair 'drinking conditioner'. How do you know when your hair has drank the conditioner and needs more? I don't my hair to go thirsty!

For me, it takes a lot of conditioner to coat my hair (i have lotsa hair). It's like impossible for my hair to be overconditioned or weighed down. I'd say my hair is generally dry so it can "take in" loads of conditioner. Also I can use heavy conditioners daily and even use them as a leave-in and not have any problems. hope this helps
Lotsa 3c curls

For me, it's when the conditioner sinks right in. I add more until my hair stops absorbing it.

I do the same as Suburban, I give my hair conditioner until it stops sucking it up. I need to feel slick before I know my hair will be well conditioned for the day.
2c/3a?
Low porosity, medium texture.

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!
I add enough conditioner for my hair to feel slick and "sea-weedy." My hair likes to eat product, so it seems to need more conditioner than it should for my length and thickness of hair.

my hair changes everytime i wash it. sometimes it needs a little sometimes lots. thing is when i first smooth conditioner over my hair it feels like its totally been absorbed into my hair. but when i comb it through i can really see how much has been absorbed. it usually sits on top so i can see why stuff on my hair but a minute later will be gone - voila its been drunk up by my hair! so i'll apply a little more (2 pea sizes worth) and then wait a minute. if its gone i'll apply more until my hair feels seaweedy and looks really shiney. if i keep applying unitl i can see conditioner on my hair that isnt absorbed then i have overconditioned. so i dont put enough on that i can see the conditioner on my hair without it being absorbed, i apply enough that its all absorbed and feels really seaweedy.

Hope that made sense! its a fine line but once you crack it your hair will love you
