I've been using a spray/leave in conditioner called It's A 10 since the beginning of December 2008; I had been really shitty to my hair and had not been in for a hair cut in some time. The woman who cuts my hair had been to a trade show recently and gave me a bottle. Prior to Christmas I went back in and let Kim spend about all afternoon taking the black out of my hair. Anyway, I've been using this leave in since December and my hair is really fucking happy. A little goes a long way. To avoid getting the dangerous spots on the floor or carpet I just spray 3 to 5 pumps into my hand and go from there.
