    I purchased some Silicon Mix at the BSS yesterday and I :kiss: this stuff!!!

    I just washed with ORS Creamy Aloe and deep conditioned (hot towel and plastic cap) with Silicon Mix. My hair is just about completely air dried and it is SO SOFT I can't believe it! This is totally new for my 4B hair which, generally, air dries kind of crunchy. I highly recommend it to all the 4's.

    Added bonus (or not, depending on how you look at it): I'm gonna have to fight off my SO when I go to bed because he's really feelin' the smell...

    I am so grateful for this forum! You ladies are the best for turning me on to this stuff!

    I KNOW!! I KNOW!! (jumping up and down):yay:

    This is my holy grail of hair products. I had to order mine and so was really taking a chance. I have the poo and con. When I tell you that my hair is as manageable as all get out and I am 11 weeks post? I can flat iron my hair after using it and it looks like I have a fresh relaxer. Oh, how I wish there was a BSS that carried it here in the ATL. Congratulations!

    That's great! I wish it was accessible on land for me, guess I'll just have to order a 24 oz. tub for my refill. I'm expecting my poo and leave-in any day now. I wanted more products from it because I love the smell so much and of course, the way it makes my hair feel. Can't wait to use the whole prod. line together.

    I got it in South Jersey at this great BSS! It's in Willingboro (about 20 minutes outside of Philadelphia) located in the "Great Marketplace" on Rt. 130. They have EVERYTHING Dominican...I spent $50 in there on Silicon Mix, Sole & Cinnamon Rinse, and all sorts of other stuff. The owners are Puerto Rican and stock all sorts of stuff.

    Is this the Rivas Silicon Mix? I used this stuff for the first time yesterday and thought the smell was awful (smells like cheap soap), but it did make my hair softer.

    Oh ok, mine's said Avanti on it also. I guess it depends on one's perception.

    I :love: Silicon Mix! I first used it when I was 11 weeks post relaxer and was floored by how soft my new growth was! It has definitely become a staple of mine. I've found that while other products work well, my hair seems to really be in love with Dominican products. :kiss:

    Yeah that silicon mix is no joke. The leave-in is now one of my staples. I haven't found a leave-in that can match it!
