Generally speaking, how much of any given hair product should you use - be it fibre, paste, pomade, creme, etc. To clarify, my hair length is down to my ears (straight) and very thick - so I need to use more than someone with short hair to maintain my hairstyle. I just can't seem to find the right balance though. If I use too little (a dime), the hold is not that great for the weight of my hair and if I use too much (a good size glop), my hair dries crusty. I would appreciate any advice or product recommendations. I have been using various American Crew products.
