just curious, how do you use it? and why do you use it that way?

i find my hair is softer if i rake it through my hair, but i have smaller curls.
if i scrunch it in i have chunky curls, but my hair isn't as soft...

what to do? what to do? :roll: :? :wink:

i had an option for "Eww, you leave that stuff in?!" but it's not showing..and it won't let me add another option..so i guess if you don't leave any in, just let us know...thanks!

    i leave in almost all of my regular condish in the shower. if for some reason i was adding it in after shower, i would scrunch - raking at all after my final rinse breaks up my clumps.

    I both rake and scrunch, but mostly scrunch so that got my vote.

    I went for 'rake' as that seems to distribute best for me, but then I scunch afterwards!

    I use a spray-on, leave-in b/c it tends to not weigh down my hair. Usually I will spray it into my hair (concentrating on the ends) and then take a wide tooth comb and distribute it throughout.

    When I use a leave-in I just smooth it down the sections. Sometimes I'll take big clumps of conditioner coated sections and twirl them once or twice between my fingers just to make sure i've got them thorougly coated, but I usually just do that with areas that more dry.

    I just leave in my regular conditioner, it seems to work well. If I mess with my curls too much they get frizzy.
