How long do you plan to be in the challenge? All year
How often will you DC? Once a week. I'm in braids right now though so once I take the braids out next month I'll start with once a week.
What DCs will you use (top 5-10 if you can't list them all)? Mielle Organics Babbasu & Mint. Shea Moisture Manuka Honey.

What's your hair profile (relaxed/natural, porosity, strand size, etc)? Natural. 3c/4a. Low porosity
What goals do you hope regular DCs will help you achieve? Thicker and more moisturized hair. Enhance my curl pattern,
Starting photo: I have box braids right now so I'll have to take photo once I take them out

Your top DCs are also my top DCs, and we have a similar hair type/porosity :)

Wowow your hair is amazing! What's your regimen?

BTW, that's a lot of DCs for someone who will only be deep conditioning 1x per year ;) haha

Good morning ladies. Today I used:

-Amika Normcore Signature Shampoo :lick: very moisturizing and a little goes a long way
-Amika Normcore Signature Conditioner as a quick rinse out - meh, don't need this one
-Amika Triple Rx Mask (protein) :lick: slip galore - only need a little
-Amika Nourishing Mask (moisturizing) :drool:slots of slip as well - only need a little as well


-Redken Extreme Anti-Snap Leave-in mixed with Product Junkie's Smoothing Lotion and will seal later with maybe some Nairobi Vita-Sheen Hairdress and/or diy Shea Butter.

-Big plaits under wig to style.

Okay guys, so as I mentioned in my
Wowow your hair is amazing! What's your regimen?

BTW, that's a lot of DCs for someone who will only be deep conditioning 1x per year ;) haha

Oh gosh lol... Sorry, that's a typo. I DC 1x per week ugh lol... Still getting used to using my phone with this website

Thank you~you're so kind ~~
My regimen is not exactly settled yet as I'm experimenting and making some changes but here's the general gist~

Shampoo wash 1x per week
DC with heat 1x per week
Moisturise and seal
Have been wearing twists for the last year and a bit

I fell off the wagon with deep conditioning over the past year and I just jumped back on a couple of months of ago. Hoping this challenge can keep me on track ~

Hey ladies~

So due to the fact that I bought wayyy too many DC Products over the Christmas break, I'm gonna be doing a blog series to review all of the products. I bought a lot of products that I wasn't aware of before so I hope that I can find some gems ~~~

Anyway, here's the first post if you are interested :

https://longhaircareforum.com/blogs/deep-conditioner-review-curlykids-curly-deep-conditioner.885/

Also, if you have any tips on how I can improve the format/ any categories that I'm missing, I would be very grateful ☺️

I'll also try to include more pictures from the next post! (coming this weekend hopefully)

DCed with Cantu Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque last night ~

:toocool: my hair is soft soft soofftttt. I wouldn't say moisturised, I wouldn't say strong, but I would say soft, if that makes sense? Anyeay, I'm loving the results and scent... Especially with the price.

If you're interested in reading the whole review. Please see below :drunk:

Dc’ed with heating cap using Queen Helene super cholesterol deep conditioner. I mixed it with TJ’s NourishSpa Conditioner.

Results were just ok. I think because I haven’t Dc’ed in a while and my hair feels a little dry and super thick - not too soft. I have to get back on my regimen.

About to deep condition with the Elasta QP DPR-11+ deep penetrating remoisturising conditioner

Never used it before but I'm looking to find some more affordable DC staples.

It was a hit on LHCF 2003-2010ish before all of the new brands came in (yes, I've gone THAT deep into the archives lol) so let's see if it matches the hype.

I'm a bit worried since I see mineral oil AND petroleum on the ingredients list....

Will write a review and post later on :)

Deep conditioned with Elasta QP DPR-11 Deep Penetrating Remoisturising Conditioner for the first time this weekend. Results were interesting, I guess.

Here's review of anyone is interested :

https://longhaircareforum.com/blogs...p-penetrating-remoisturising-conditioner.897/

Pic attached is taken just after I washed the product out


No... Just no. Never again. I will never use this DC or any other with mineral oil or petroleum again,

While I am Re-moisturising my hair throughout the week, I am noticing breakage.... This doesn't usually happen to me... Never again

My cousin is on her way AS WE SPEAK to pick up every product with mineral oil in this room
