Is there such thing as too much conditioner? Is it hair damaging?

Some conditioners also contain polymers and other things that can build up over time, if you feel like your hair is weighed down, looks dull, or greasy even after shampooing this is probably what has happened. It can help to use a stronger shampoo meant to strip these build ups once a month or more if needed (do not use everyday as they will strip your hair's natural oils). Some examples are: Paul Mitchell's Shampoo Two, and Neutrogena's Anti-Residue Shampoo. Or you can create your own clarifying rinse using apple cider vinegar. There is a good recipe with instructions here: http://www.ehow.com/how_4778106_remove-hair-residue-vinegar-home.html

Too much conditioner won't damage your hair but it will weigh it down and may make it look dirty or greasy.

That's onlt if you don;t wash it all out though, you can put in heaps and wash it out properly, and it will look normal. (a waste of conditioner though)

Its a good idea to only wash your hair with conditioner once a week and shampoo everyday. if you use head&shoulder brand, use it everyday cause i realized that using conditioner everyday make me have constant dandruff. (if u have dandruff, use head&shoulders, its a good brand but it does cost extra$$$)

Too much conditioner will make your hair very greasy. It wont hurt your hair but I wouldn't put a lot in my hair because it will turn out very greasy!
