Troubleshooting O’Douds Matte Paste

Hi all! I am halfway through my first jar of O’Douds Matte Paste and I must say I do very much enjoy using it overall. That being said, I have been noticing a very irritating issue with respect to application.

Obeying Robin’s “law” of layering, I first put a fingertip-sized amount into the palm of my hand, rub vigorously to heat/emulsify, and then apply it throughout my hair, starting from the back. Here is where I encounter the problem. When I go back for a second scoop and begin to again rub vigorously, I find that the second round of product hardly emulsifies evenly. In fact, if I rub my hands together for long enough, little bits of product begin to pill / flake off. And, as you can imagine, if I put my hands through my hair at this point, it does nothing but make my hair look full of dandruff-like white bits.

Am I completely missing something? Or has anyone else experienced this issue?
