Question Do you dose or glug?

We were wondering, do you measure out your shampoo according to manufacture instructions with capfulls etc, or do you just glug in whatever feels right?

i've gone for measure but after using the same shampoo regularly you get a feel for how much is needed and sometimes just 'glug' to around what i'd usually put in

Depends on the size of the container lol.

5Litres or above I tend to go with what feels right (The more the better right??)

My small Bilt hamber Shampoo I use one cap and its lasting a absolute age

Usually go by capful measurements, if there are no instructions then I glug away until I get it to how I like it.

In fairness to AG, they do state on their shampoo label to use "20ml (2 caps full)". Perhaps it would be better to say "2 level cap fulls" or something to make it sound more measured ?

I initially measure products, but as others have said, you often get used to how big a glug = a good guesstimate of the correct measure, after a few times.
