Silicon Mix and Kanechom Conditioning Treatment Review

After conditioning and styling, What a difference!
I told you guys I would be trying the Silicon Mix Deep Conditioner by Avanti mixed with the Kanechom Karite Conditioner. If you haven't heard about it, YouTube it and you can see many videos about the tandem.

I ordered mine from Amazon. They came well packaged which is important because I hate when my product spills out.

I washed my hair with a sulfate shampoo which I almost never do because I am normally a no silicone and no sulfate kinda curly girl. So what in the heck am I doing with a product called Silicon mix?

Well, as it turns out, Silicon mix does have silicone in it (duh), but, it is a silicone that will evaporate on its own so you don't have to use a sulfate shampoo to wash it out. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The other two silicones in it are water soluble which means they can be washed out with your sulfate free shampoo or sulfate free conditioning wash.

Should You Use Conditioner as a Styler?

I subscribe to the Curly Girl Method for my hair care, well, most of the time. Anywhoo..the regimen suggest that you keep conditioner in your hair as your styler, not leave in conditioner, but a regular conditioner that you just don't wash out.

Here is a great answer from JC of The Natural Haven , I love her, she is a scientist by trade and a natural hair diva who loves to drop hair science on us.

JC" I must clarify first and say that when you wash your hair, you should rinse out all the conditioner thoroughly (for reasons known as potential itchiness, personal experience here, some science to follow)."
 So the next question is after you have rinsed all of it out,can you put a little regular conditioner in your hair for moisture?

Kanechom Karite Brazillian Treatment and Silicon Mix Treatment

Hello ladies and gents. I have a problem and I need some help. My hair is as dry as the desert. I peroxided my hair in a moment of insanity and now my hair is realllly dry. Please don't tell me to cut it off and start again. I am already trimming slowly( very slowly.) 

I have been on a quest to find a deep conditioner that will help bring my sad little curls back to life.
Something that will take my dull straight locks back to the shiny hair that I once knew and loved.

The Hair Up There

My Hair Story

I have been a natural haired curly girl since July 30th of 2011. I transitioned for a year before cutting off my mid-back length hair. 

Actually I went natural in 2000 but there was not much information around about maintaining natural hair at that time.
There were even fewer products targeted towards natural hair other than hair gel.

 So, I cut off my mid back locks and sported my curly ear length stiff hair. It looked cute, but don't touch, you could've gotten cut. I gave up a few months later and relaxed my hair. 

I stayed relaxed for the next 10 years and then got the itch to try going natural again. I have many hair inspirations via YouTube.I follow Mahogany Curls, she is my hair crush!LOL!! No, really!
