I DC'ed last weekend with Joico Moisture Recovery, under steamer 30 minutes.
Dc’ing w Shea Moisture Superfruit Masque just finished under the dryer for 30mins.
I've never been consistent with conditioning, but I'd like to try. I have a years supply of CC Naturals moisturizer/conditioners, can I use these?
DC'ing with KJ Naturals Rosemary Coconut DC under steam for 30 mins.

I really wanted to wash and dc my hair today. Instead, I took a nap. I feel great. If I don't get too Christmas lit, I will do it tonight. My hair feels dry and neglected. It's been around 3 weeks since wash day. I'm making a habit of this infrequent washing. I'll do better.
I ended up washing my hair and deep conditioning 2 days ago. The detangling process was painless. My blow dry was quick and easy. I used Blonde Moment conditioner and Kerastase Chroma something. I can’t remember the name. I was under the dryer for 20 minutes. I plan on washing again in the next week or 2. #momlife
I'm currently DCing with Mielle Babassu & Mint (+ hot towel) and will follow up with Kerastase Maskeratine.
DCing with Schwartzkopf Gliss Ultra Hydrating Keratin treatment right now. Going for a full hr with my last DC of the year.
TMC Carrot & Green Tea Reconstructor
Whoa, I have not posted in here in a while. I did Deep Condition this week using Follicle Care Cayena Wood mixed with NG Rose Clay DC for a balance of both protein and moisture. My hair is happy
My last DC of the year was yesterday - a mixture of APB Garlic Conditioner, NG Marshmallow Root, and some honey. I applied it on my dry hair and left it on with a plastic cap for about 4-5 hours while I did stuff around the house. Followed up with Curl Origin's Hydrating Leave-In and my Shea butter mix, and put it in a bun.
Next year, I will continue with this challenge! I will DC 1x2 times per week in the winter as usual, and 1x per week otherwise.
The conditioners, you can use.
I will try harder to stay on track and DC more this year. I either fall off if I don’t have a reliable heat source or reliable access to deep conditioners. I prefer buying on the ground so I’ll have to make greater efforts to get out and buy some DCs. Also I need a new blow dryer.

Took a break from washing over the past two weeks and wore twists under a scarf then twist outs. Was nice to not worry about washing and chill with the kids over the break. That Shea butter kept my hair moisturized the whole time.
Dc’ing currently with Shea Moisture Manuka Masque under the dryer for 30 mins. Will let it sit for a couple of hours while I do stuff around the house.
Dc on Friday-Black Rosted Coffee Dc hair paste..Hair felt really strong after & very little hair hair shed..I used Aussie Moist as a rinse out..Soft strong hair..That smells good..
Happy Hair Growing!
DC'ing under heat with Marie Dean Cholesterol Conditioner for 15 mins.
I’m definitely going to start Deep Conditioning this 2019:
DC w/heat for 20 min every wash day
Aphogee 2 Step Every 8 Weeks
1. Hot Deep Conditioning Cap
2. Shea Moisture Manuka Honey DC
(It’s ok, doesn’t leave my hair soft after
rinsing unless I leave some in)
3. Aphogee 2 Step (staple)
Looking for a Staple:
Will test the following Moisturizing Deep Conditioners this year (new purchase only after using up current DC):
1. Alikay Naturals Honey & Sage DC
2. Soultanicals Afrotastic Curl Elastic
3. The Mane Choice Ancient Egyptian DC
4. Mielle Organics Mint & Babassu Oil
5. Naturelle Grow Marshmallow DC
6. UnconditionalLovebyC Chocolate Milk DC
^let me know if you guys have any better deep conditioner suggestions (preferably black owned)/if this list looks good. I want to limit my staple search to 5/6 products so I can give each product a fair chance. I don’t have a problem with silicones or mineral oil, just drying alcohols (Isopropyl etc)
Mielle Organics Babbasu oil and mint dc is a great one. I like the Soultanicals one too.
I have Carol's Daughter DC that does nothing for my hair.
DCing with heat for an hour today with Loreal El Vive Total Repair balm....its new to me so wish me luck.
CD Almond DC was horrible on my hair. The rinseout was better .
Im in! I need the reminder to DC weekly/Biweekly.
I DC'd friday with Joico Moisture Recovery.
I plan to switch up every wash day so my hair doesn't get lazy.
The Carol’s Daughter DC is definitely out then. Saved me $15. I’ve heard a lot about the Mielle one so I will edit the list and give it a chance.
DC'ed overnight on dry hair with Curl Origin Double Moisture Overnight Mask. Annnd... used up the entire jar in one sitting
DC'ing right now with KJ Naturals Rosemary Coconut DC under heat for 30 mins.
My account expired New Year’s Eve... I just renewed today. I cowashed my hair and flat ironed. I love how it feels! I did a Keragen treatment last Thursday. I used vo5 lime clarifying conditioner and Aphogee 2 minute. Heat protectant was the generic chi silk infusion from Sally’s.
Quickly washed my hair and did an Aphogee Rx early this morning. Last weekend I deep conditioned with Shea Moisture’s Manuka Honey DC (still just ok, but I’m going to use it up).
DC'd on thursday with motions moisture plus with safflower and castor oil
