Do you ever wear your hair without conditioner in it?
I do wear my hair without conditioner in it sometimes. For example, I wanted really big hair for my engagement photos, so after combing and defining it, I rinsed all the conditioner out of my hair. It stayed clumped pretty well considering there was nothing holding it together except for me having defined my curls. It was really fluffy, and it was ready to expand the moment it got windy or humid. For the photos, I gently fingercombed my curls apart. It was a drizzly day as we took the photos. As the session kept going, my hair got bigger and bigger and bigger. Near the end, Jon was having to press my hair down so he could be seen over it.

That night, because it had gotten so big from my fingercombing it (as well as others for the session), and without the protective conditioner, it took about four hours to comb it, but it was worth it.

Here are a few photos showing my big hair, without any conditioner in it, from that photo shoot (including a closeup so you can see what my hair looks like up close):
