There are several ways to choose the question(s) you'd like answered:

Will Your Techniques Work With Any Conditioner?
No, this technique actually won't work with any conditioner. In fact, with the wrong kind of conditioner, you could end up with a mess or a sticky crunchy mess. This is why I recommend specific conditioners, because I know these will work when you leave them in.

Many conditioners have ingredients in them (like sodium chloride), that are fine if you will rinse them out. But for ones you leave in your hair, you have to be extra paranoid. Also, some conditioners have gel-like ingredients which will build up on your hair and make it sticky or crunchy when used in the amounts I use. Some aren't slippery enough to get a comb through your hair, so you could damage you hair trying to force a comb or brush through it. Some are too light, and after all the work of defining your curls, it will evaporate away, and you are left with puffy hair. However, I'm constantly searching for more great conditioners to recommend on the site.
