You stare at your head in horror. "I can't go to work with this shyt in my head" and you are forced to rewash your hair to get rid of the horrid mistake and start all over (and end up getting to work late).
Many of us are left trying to figure out what happened. Did I use to much of one product? Not enough product? Did I rinse the conditioner out completely? WHAT HAPPENED?!?!?!? This can be a frustating and madding process..espically if you wash daily (or in the morning) and your don't have time for these issues to arise in your morning routine (espically if like me, you try and sleep until the last moment possible!)
Well, here is a tip from the Naps,Kinks,Coils,and Curls files. When using two or more products (leave in + styler) that you have never used together before, put a tiny bit of each in the palm of your hand and mix. If it globs up and turns into that cottage cheese looking stuff, that's what it will do when they meet on your head. This way, you can test to see what will happen once the products are mixed, without extending your morning routine by having to rewash your hair.
Hope this little tidbit helps someone!
