The Conditioner...blue?

I stopped at TS on my way home from work and grabbed a small bottle of PM The Conditioner. Is is supposed to be blue? And on the bottle it just says Leave-in moisturizer. Anyone use it for a regular conditioner and leave-in? :sad1:
VERY fine 2B/3A hair

    I've recently got PM the Conditioner, too, and started a thread asking about how to use it. Didn't get much response. Anyways, it is supposed to be blue and from the little I've read in past posts, just a teaspoon or so can be used as a leave-in. I've only used it three times so far, but it seems to be working pretty well. This morning I used this after a rinse-out CO then brushed the PM through wet hair. I tried a different technique - sectioning my hair and scrunching gel into each section. I used HEBE. The results after clipping and diffusing were shiny, tight twisty curls, a little crunchy and producty, but pretty good curls for my 2c hair. I used a lot more gel than I usually do, though. Frizz is often a problem for me, but the frizz is minimal. I'll try this combo of product and technique again.

    Phew! Glad it's supposed to be blue. I was worried for a minute there. I'll have to play around with it. I'm trying to find a replacement for OneC b/c it breaks me out something terrible. I do wish The Cond. didn't smell so medicinal though. But that's PM goodies for you.

    I use it too, and it's definitely supposed to be blue. I don't think it works well as a rinse out; it grips the hair too much for that, so it's definitely meant to be a leave in, at least on my hair.

    PM-TC is one of just two products of which I really can use just a little (usually 4 quarter sized amounts) on my thick, dry curls and get good coverage. I wish it were more moisturizing, though. I tend to use it as "hair underwear" and follow it up with another leave in and a styler; it's great for layering as it interacts well with other products.

    Oh man that's funny!! I'm going to have to use the term 'hair underwear' in some conversation today.

    i use it too. it is blue. I apply my products to sopping wet hair before scrunching and plopping. I put in the PM-TC before my stylers.

    funny thing though the other day i accidentally put in the l'oriel out of bed before PM-TC and got pretty good results, more natural style but not bad.
    My hair is a mix of 2b/3a and even a bit of 3b thrown in! I would call my hair wavycelli. It curls most when I leave it alone after wet scrunching. My hair has a spring factor of about 2 or 3 inches and has a very silky, medium texture.

    Glad you like it. Have to admit I didn't coin it, as much as I love the concept. ;)

    I have a big bottle of the Sally's knockoff and it's blue. It works best for me as a leave-in underneath the GW Making Waves gel. Other than that, I'm not crazy about it (or the fragrance!).

    Same here with the generic. I actually think I really like, still trying to decide. I'm just glad the scent doesn't linger...
