“More is not always better”
Applying too much conditioner on your hair is wasteful and sending good money down the drain. It is a common misconception that when applying conditioner to your hair it should be oozing and dripping off the ends. Conditioner should be applied starting at the ends and working your way up to the crown of your head. If your hair has a tendency to get oily or is fine, skip the roots and pamper the ends. You should apply just enough conditioner that your hands run smoothly through your hair. If the ends soak up the conditioner it is okay to add a little more. Don’t “lather” the conditioner through your hair but rather run your fingers or a wide-tooth comb in a downward motion to distribute. Conditioner is designed first and foremost to detangle the hair and “lathering” the hair with conditioner will not distribute the product evenly, can cause tangling and leave a residue that weighs the hair down. If you follow these guidelines and your hair still feels dry or oily than chances are you are using the wrong product.
