I try to stay on top of doing week DTs (and PTs for my fairly fine hair), and I think it makes a big difference. I was slow in fitting in a PT recently, and my hair really protested. Once I realized I'm missed a PT, I did one...Was rewarded with a good hair day.
One thing that I haven't gotten around to trying yet (but I plan on it) and hear really helps the effectiveness of DTs for many people is applying low heat during the time the treatment's in your hair.
Also, since I'm still relatively new to all of this, I rotate products to test what works/doesn't. I have some expensive DTs in mind to get and try sometime, but in the meantime, I'm finding that some quick, homemade DTs are working pretty well for me. One that I've used a few times and really like a lot is 1Tbs honey, 1Tbs EVOO, and 1Tbs DC OneC (although I imagine you can probably use another cg-friendly condish) mixed together. I work that through my hair, leave it in for about 30 mins, rinse it out, and my hair is good and conditioned.
