Default How do YOU use Porosity Control?

I use PC Conditioner after each wash. I shampoo, dc, rinse out the dc and condition with PC for 5 minutes.

Since using Porosity Control and Fermodyl 233, my hair is retaining moisture so much better. My rollersets are so soft and my hair just looks and feels better

I'm going to try this for my daughter's hair. I've been trying to figure out how to get her hair to retain more moisture. I forgot all about PC and I've got some in my stash! Thanks for the reminder Tiffers!

I use it before a DC. I use to it also as a final rinse but I have since switched to ACV rinses as my final rinse.

Because I DC with heat, I use PC as my final conditioner (it just makes more sense for me to do it this way). My hair loves me for it!

Has anyone used it when applying a rinse on the hair?

Rinse as in color rinse?

I use it after each and every DC Treatment! I have noticed a big improvement in the Overall Health of my Hair since incorporating this product into my weekly Regimen. It has worked Wonders.

I use it on my hair when doing a touch to protect the already processed hair (well that and vaseline).

Thanks for reminding me I forgot that step! I updated my regi on my blog.

I've noticed that most everyone uses it with or after other conditioners, can it be used alone?

For those of you who wash more than once a week, do you use it after each wash? Or is once a week enough? Does anyone use the pc poo also?

I wash twice a week and use PC twice a week

I've used the poo and absolutely love it. Makes my hair so soft and slippy. I just wish it didn't have SLS in it

I plan on getting the poo again sometime this week, cause I miss it

I have the Poo as well but have never used it? Wasn't really quite sure if it acted as a Clarifier or just a regular Shampoo.

Now I must find a way to incorporate it somehow into my rotation. On those times when I use Shampoo. Thanks Tiffers.

I think I'm going to have to give in and buy this - I'm hearing too many good reports *adds to the list*

I think I'll just stick to the conditioner though...
