I mainly just use a leave in and an oil and then I'm done with my hair for the day. But the canopy gets really hard after it dries (idk if I should describe it as hard but i guess that's how it reacts??? and today I realized that maybe I need to SOTC??? Does anyone else have to SOTC when they conditioner only style? How do you go about it?

I'm wondering if SOTC is uncommon for conditioner only styling and I'm starting to think that it's more of an indicator of too much product,,,
