Default onec vs. too shea

I have been using one c for 3 months now and I wanted to try too shea so I ordered it and it seems like it takes a lot to moisturize enough to detangle my hair. My hair is long and touches my bra strap when wet. Does anybody else have to use a lot of too shea?

Too Shea doesn't have as much slip as One Condition, so it does sometimes take more to detangle. Try letting it sit on your hair for a few minutes before attempting to detangle, that tends to help.

i have used it twice so far, and yes, i have noticed i need to use a lot of too shea, but i have longish, thick hair. as pixicurl said, it does not seem to have too much slip to it as some other conditioners i've used in the past.

I have the opposite problem. I have to use palmfuls of OneC to get any kind of detangling in my hair. Everyone's hair is different.

Sometimes if my hair is very tangled I use a cheaper conditioner to detangle before I actually use my moisturizing conditioner. That way I use less of the expensive stuff.

That is what a lot of people do. I love Too Shea! My hair rarely tangles so I've never had to deal with that issue, but I would detangle with a cheap conditioner as Realistic suggested. When I first started using Too Shea, my hair was really damaged, but as my hair gets healthier, I don't need to use as much and so it lasts a long time.

I started using Too Shea when my hair was damaged and it seems to absorb it. Now after continued use I dont have to use much at all it has transformed my hair. It does do much better detangling after a couple mins. I ran out for a short while and tried other conditioners I have stock piled but just didnt like the results so I broke down and ordered more. I get spider frizz with One C so I dont use it now.

i used One C for the first time this morning. i had to use just as much of that as i did Too Shea. i just have a lot of hair, i'm sure that is the reason i have to use a lot of conditioner.
