How big of a glob are you suppose to use to wash your scalp? I read on the sticky at the top of the page only a dime size but that's not enough for me so I've been using more of quarter size. It still doesn't seem like enough but I don't want to use to much, ya know?

    I was just re-reading the Curly Girl book this morning and it mentions to use half of a teaspoon which they classify as a blob about the size of a quarter. But she also mentions that the conditioner amounts that she suggests are average amounts and each individual curly would have to play with what amounts work best for you.

    I have a big head and thick hair, so I'll use a bit more than a quarter-sized blob. As long as I can feel it all across my scalp, I'm good.

    And is there such thing as too much? As long as you rinse it all out...

    ...oh. oops. i use 3 slightly-bigger-than-quarter-size blobs. one for the top, middle, and bottom of my head. i use $1 VO5 or White rain so i just use as much as i need to feel like my scalp is really clean.
