I couldn't give you an exact amount. Mostly it depends on what I want for my hair that day.. for more control and definition, I use more conditioner (say, enough to cover the palm of my hand, maybe more if I don't get enough coating all of my hair). For more volume I use less conditioner. In that case I rinse out most of it, and going by feel, just leave in enough to feel a little slip, and then seal with an oil or shea butter and air dry.
Thanks BekkaPoo. Sorry for the delay...just saw this. I think I'll try using more conditioner next time.

You're absolutely adorable don't even worry! To be honest i can't even see any frizz - I looked at your fotki and to be honest your long 2nd day hair at night is my goal, and the short bob a while into CG... welll uh hello, amazing! I'm jealous of your hair. I admit it. Lol.

I think it looks pretty similiar too! I'm gonna make a fotki and get some pics on there in the next few days so you can have a look. And you're right, thank god for KCCC! My hair has improved soooo much it's unreal! Did you do the b/c just to donate your hair or did you do it cause you wanted it short? Just out of curiosity

Yes, i can't wait to see!!! i actually wanted to cut a large chunk of hair. but i figured, that hair could be used for something better than ending up on the floor at a salon. so i decided to keep growing it till it was long enough to donate it. i wish i could do more volunteer stuff but at the moment it doesnt fit in with my schedule. so i thought this would be something doable and would benefit someone!! i usually change up my hair style in january - new year new look, but i held out till last month!! but after the BC my hair has been so much more healthy, it is incredible!!! it feels amazing in the shower even before the conditioner!

Awww that's really sweet of you! I wish I had done the same with my hair after my bc cause there was a LOT of hair right down to the small of my back. But that was a long time ago and I didn't know about stuff like that, so maybe one day
Problem is with me and pics is that my hair looks good but my face... well.... LOL.
