    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

    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
    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)

    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 :)

    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
