Default How much conditioner..?

How much conditioner should you use? I often find myself using too little or going overboard and that leaves me with super dry curls.

I'm a mix 3A/3B/3C
But most of the time my hair is 3Bish.

So any advice?

It depends on what condish you're using. If you're using something like Suave, which is a little less moisturizing, you'll need more - some curlies use up to a palmful or two! If you're using something more moisturizing (e.g, DevaCare One C, etc) then you'll need less. Basically, just put it on until your hair detangles easily and feels slippery and like it's soaking it up. That should be enough.

HTH!

It does depend on the conditioner. When I used Suave naturals I had to use tons of it. Same thing with Devacurl OneC and TooShea; I used a lot of them. With Robert Craig or John Masters it takes only a rounded tablespoon or so, and I can add water to it in my hair and it distributes even better.

That one has cyclopentasiloxane fairly high on the ingredients list. You'll probably need to use a smaller amount of it, but you'll need a sulfate shampoo to wash out the silicone.

I use Suave Naturals, and use about two tablespoonfuls (it's a scant palmful). If I use more, my hair gets stringy and limp.
