WTF It dried up my hair!

I was excited because I had just run out of my Not Your Mothers leave in conditioner… took a shower then applied it to the ends of my hair. Usually leave in conditioner makes it easier to brushes my hair, I noticed little by little my hair was drying and my ends were like straws! Wtf it does the opposite and for some reason it smelled salty. DONT WAIST YOUR MONEY!!
