How much water should be on head in wudu?

I check the top of my head after I wipe to see if water has reached it with my finger I noticed only a trickle of water. Is that small amount of moisture enough or should the head have more water after wiping?

From Sistani:

255. After washing both the hands, one performing Wudhu should wipe the front part of his head with the wetness which is in his hand; the recommended precaution is that he should wipe it with the palm of his right hand, from the upper part, downwards.

256. The part on which wiping should be performed, is one fourth frontal part of the head. It is sufficient to wipe as much at any place in this part of the head, although the recommended precaution is that the length should be equal to one finger, and i ts breadth should be equal to three joined fingers.

257. It is not necessary that the wiping of the head should be performed on its skin. It is also in order if a man wipes the hair on the front of his head. However, if the hair are so long that when combed they fall on his face, or on other parts of his head, he should wipe his hand on the roots of his hair, or part the hair and wipe the skin. If a person collects his hair on the front side of his head, or on other parts of his head and wipes them, or if he wipes the hair of other places, such a wiping w ould be void.

 Thanks for the reply. Still lost when it comes to the amount of water that should be on the head when I wipe. if I see tiny trickles of water is my wudu good or do I have to redo it?

Thank You
