2010 12 week Deep Conditioning Challenge - WE'RE DONE!!!!!

I just rinsed out my 1st DT for this week, banana avocado, avage nectar and condish. Maybe i left it in too long, i got a bit distracted and its been in for most of teh afternoon, but my hair feels the way it does after a mild protein treatment - is its supposed to feel this way? What did I miss? I now have to go do a moisturising condish.
hair type - definately 4a

wash - any baby shampoo

conditioning styler - homemade blend with shea, coconut, avocado mango, plam, castor, almond and essential oils

3x! That's a lot, but I think I can do that. Here's my starter pic. I hope to have enough hair to look cute with a scarf by the end of the challenge (right now I barely have any poof).

I'm wondering if we should do weekly protein treatments if we are DT'ing more than 1 x week? If we are adding loads of moisture every week, should we not balance it out with a protein condish or something that mimics protein like henna or molasses?

DT experts, what say you?

You read my mind! I was thinking of doing a yogurt treatment to counteract all the moisturizing.

Thanks, MUCC! Idk where my mind was on Sunday night, but I just couldn't wrap my head around posting pics. Anyway, I am excited to start my challenge!! 2nd DT tomorrow ladies!
I'm wondering if we should do weekly protein treatments if we are DT'ing more than 1 x week? If we are adding loads of moisture every week, should we not balance it out with a protein condish or something that mimics protein like henna or molasses?

DT experts, what say you?

I know I'm late but go ahead and count me in!!!!
The two DC I use are Africa's Best Oil and a homemade mixture of egg, rosemary oil, coconut oil, lime juice and honey.
My only purpose is to keep my hair soft and moisturized through the rest of these winter months. Since I already DC once a week I will attempt to DC twice a week for the first six weeks. I will be DCing tomorrow- since no class no work!!!!

I'm going to DT again on Friday, that will be DT #3 for this week!!! I'm having so much fun mixing up homemade DT's. Wonder what i will cook up on Friday.....

I've just deep treated with plain yoghurt, baking soda, and a Garnier Nutritive Oils mask conditioner. I left it on for about an hour with a shower cap on while I cooked dinner (sorta forgot I had it in!). Rinsed with warm brewed Yerba Mate Tea, blotted with a towel and fell in love when I looked in the mirror.
So I believe the protein in the yoghurt makes this more of a protein treatment because my curls were gorgeously defined but felt dry as all get out. I immediately moisturised with Beijaflor's Creme Brulee (I ordered it online and just got it today!) and sealed with shea butter. Hair feels so soft and curls are still wonderfully defined. I'm going to try not to wet it for the rest of the week and see if this lasts. Loving this challenge!!

Right now I'm doing a simple DC...just condish with some castor oil added...I made some green tea this morning to drink, but I think I'm going to rinse with it instead, haha. I can always make more tea!
