MY WONDERFUL DC MIX

The stars of my current heavenly deep conditioning mix.



Hola Beautiful Ones!


Had to share my wonderful...heavenly, deep conditioning mix. I mix equal parts of Aubrey Organics GPB (glycogen protein balancing) conditioner & Komaza Care Intense Moisture Therapy. Maybe a Tablespoon of each. I really eyeball it. Then I add, about 1 to 1.5 teaspoon of honey to the mix. Maybe more. Again, I totally eyeball it. And yes, it is protein rich, given the fact that both GPB and Komaza's IMT both contain protein. But with the honey comes added moisture and my hair is so lo-ving it.

Anyhoo, I slather it on my hair, while mainly concentrating on the ends. Throw on a plastic conditioning cap and then slip my heat cap on. I usually leave it on my head for at least 15 minutes. If a show is on, then it stays on until I'm done watching it. Then I do a cold rinse. And when I say “cold rinse”, I mean a bring-your-portable-heater-in-the-bathroom cold rinse. Seriously. I get the water as cold as I can stand it. I believe in making sure my cuticles lay down.

And, of course, when rinsing my hair of the conditioner, I’m smoothing my hair from root to end. After I’ve made sure that I’ve rinsed all the conditioner out, I quickly turn the cold-ass water off (lol) and hop out the shower. By this time, my hair is feeling great. I then put my fav leave-in on, Mop leave-In Conditioner. I love this stuff! It is so good to my hair. And viola! My hair is in heaven and feelin’ pretty awesome. Yay!


Do you have any mixes that work for your hair? Do share.

  1. sounds great! (lol) @ cold water. I agree with you the colder the water the smoother the cuticles. And you can actually feel the difference to the touch afterwards.

    As you know I use my honey hair mask by my honeychild with a bit of added aloe juice sit under the steamer and....my hair feels great afterwards.

    Thanks for sharing you DC regimen, take care

  2. @Zainab1 - So true about the cold rinse. It can be rough but my hair loves it. And I love the way my hair feels afterwards.

    I'm still wanting to try adding aloe juice. Maybe once I purchase some Honeychild, I'll try the aloe juice also.

  3. This sounds so good! I really need a good cone-free DC. I have the GPB and I need to buy some honey. The Komaza treatment is out of my price range LOL. Maybe I could just add some other oils to the mix or even my AO HSR since it's definitely lackluster on it's own! So I guess you do this after shampooing on damp hair right?
