Oh yeah..my hair seriously needs conditioner on a super regular basis. My hair feels, looks, and acts better when it's well conditioned. Plus my hair is naturally dry as I don't know what..could start a darn forest fire on it's own. So conditioner..makes a HUGE difference for me. I could live without oil if I had to do so (but I'd rather not)..but no conditioner..I will just like this dude with the curl:

I'm not even playing either!

I discovered by accident that water and castor oil can leave my hair very defined, tangle free, and shiny.

I am not sure of what my porosity is yet- these things can get confusing, but I think it may be normal.

I am now wondering if conditioners are necessary at all?

I melt when I see soft shiny curls like you have...WhatEVA you using..keep doing that..cause all this time I've known you on here I had no idea you was working with all that beautiful hair. I guess sistas at the gym do be on swoll when you take your hair down..cause daaaaaaaaaaayum!

Well excuse me Miss Greenandchic!

Yeah, my hair sometimes turns a lot of heads (all races) when I wash my hair and its just hanging down. I mainly pineapple at the gym these days though.
