Default Mixing products??

I was wondering, is there any products that I should be careful to avoid mixing because they do not react well together?
Beca

I've been natural for almost 2 1/2 years and I usually just use my products "straight up", one by one and don't mix anything. (Occasionally, I'll add some of my favorite oil to shampoo or conditioner...)

Aanchal, are you new to these forums today like your name says, or just returning under a new name? Because the posts I've seen of yours are suggesting things opposite to what several people here have been doing for years. Mixing products isn't an issue, though people do learn through trial and error what works and doesn't work together. You could have a bad hair day with certain products. It may not mean any of those products were bad, it just may mean that together they didn't work on that hair type. With other products, or in different quantities they may be fine. The only way to know what may or may not work for you is to try. And most people don't get the hair they want without multiple products. One for moisture, one for frizz, one for hold, one to seal it all, etc. At the very least, most curly hair will respond best with a leave-in conditioner and a gel/mousse/pudding for hold. So there is nothing wrong with multiple products.

Wow....well are you talking about adding extra ingredients to a premade formula (like conditioner)? Or are you talking about using two diff brands together.

I don't think it's nice to call any member an "idiot" for asking a simple question. Not very welcoming or called for.

People often times add extra ingredients to their products but it can mess up the preservative. You can always use two diff brands together in a regimen.

Yes, I'm talking about adding to a premade formula. Maybe this is a stupid question but I was just wondering if you could destroy the original composition (for lack of a better word) if you put things in it. Thank you though, for you answer.

I wasn't talking about the original. It's a silly troll going around posting ignorant things on threads. She deleted her reply though.
