    I love this stuff, but seriously, Michigan weather stinks. It seems to only be solid and useable above 70 degrees, and it has not been that warm here lately. I would take it home, but we keep the apartment at 62 so it wont really help.

    I need to put his tail back up tonight, any conditioning suggestions that would be cheap and that I could leave in til the next time I take his tail out (and hopefully its warmer here!)

    You could put it into a spray bottle and throw it into the microwave. It was really warm last week, and it was so liquid a spray bottle worked great!

    I like Tresemme conditioner for dry hair. I dilute it and spray it on and leave it. Sorry bout the green sleezy...not ignoring you I just haven't dug it out yet. Its around here someplace but my spare storage room is a disaster!

    I take out a chunk of the CO with a spoon and rub it in my hands. Melts immediatly and then I rub it in.

    lol, that works too. I'll keep that in mind next time the spoon disappears. I keep the CO jar right there next to the paprika, so I use the paprika spoon.

    I chip it out as well, it melts really quick once you rub it into your hands. :)
