You might be interested in Mixed Chicks deep conditioner.  I've been using the shampoo,deep conditioner and leave in conditioner with pretty good results. HTW!

Thanks CG! I love my DevaCare no poo and one condition, but I really want to try a deep conditioner. I'll have to see if I can get my hands on some mixed chicks products!

I've tried it, its called Heaven In Hair.  I think its OK.  I used it in Michigan 'cause its a small container and doesn't require heat.

My preference is Ouidad's Deep Treatment.  I buy it in the 32oz. size.  I know its quite expensive, but it delivers the result I want.  The last time I used it I went outside instead of under the dryer and left it in for over an hour as opposed to the 20-30 min. under the bonnet dryer.

Curlgirl64, I've been thinking of giving Mixed Chicks a try as an alternate.  I seem to think there are cones in their products.  Is this correct?

Yeah, I went to Ouidad's website when they were having thier free shipping and saw that a 4 oz. bottle of the deep treat was $30.00!!!!! Shocked
I got a brochure from them that contained a little spray bottle of sun shield. I thought that was pretty cool, but now I wish I could have gotten a free small bottle of the deep treat instead!  Grin
How long does a bottle last you Sakina? HOw often do you deep treat CG and Sakina?

Yeah.  Big $$.  I bet you can get a free sample of deep treat in the fall/winter.

The 32oz lasts me several months.  It depends on how diligent I am w/my treatments.  In my mind, I want to do them weekly.  In actuality, every 2-3 weeks.  I have thick hair so I use a lot of it to get all strands coated.  I found CG difficult to work with-the consistency is strange to me.

I'll have to keep watching for a free sample!
I might have to fork over the money for a small bottle. If the large bottle lasts you several months, then it would last me forever!

Keep in mind, Sakina, that Mixed Chicks uses a TON of parabens in their products.
Just a heads up Smiley One of my older posts has all the ingredients (mens and womens lines have same ingredients)

Normally I just work a lot of oil into my hair, braid it, and wash it out the next day.  I don't have time during the day for a conditioner deep treatment, and whenever I've tried to do them at night the smell and the heat from the shower cap I use has kept me awake.  If I can figure out ways to get around these problems it would be a lot easier for me to do deep treatments.

I stopped using Mixed Chicks products after my hair started to feel like *)(&*(&^^&(
My sister also said what are you using in your hair,it doesn't look the same!  Go back to what you were using before.  I did and am happy to say my hair feels like it did before and has that natural curly look again!

Curlgirl, I'm sure its been asked and said before, but what products do you use in your hair then?? Do you air dry? Plop? Both? Something else?
Im a curly guy and from your pics our hair looks extremely similar (when its long)
**Trying to figure out what weird smiley face that is you put after "feels like"** haha jk jk

Hi Yaku,
I shampoo with one of Ida's shampoo bars(chagrin valley),currently the Nettle shampoo bar,I condition with any good conditioner I have on hand.  I usually condition first,leave that in,shampoo,rinse everything out,do an apple cider vinegar rinse(either once a week or when I feel my hair and scalp need it) rinse it out, and then condition again.  Rinse it all out with cool water and then a cold rinse.
I then wide tooth comb my hair,let it air dry alittle bit,put jojoba oil on the length and ends,run my hands through it all,scalp to ends.  Usually about 3 to 4 drops.  The finale is aloe vera gel through the length and ends and alittle from scalp to ends!
Whew!  Sound like a lot,but it goes quickly when you have a pattern down! Wink
