So I just bought the kit a few days ago. The box said the milk was to be a RO, but I read somewhere else it was a leave in. Is it both? What's correct? I really wish there were directions on their bottles!
Currently using:
SM Curl and Shine Shampoo
SM Curl and Style Hair Milk as a RO
SM Curling Souffle

It can be used as a RO also the smoothie can be used as a DT. The directions are right above the ingredients, I think.

I use it as a leave in. you can check out their fb page to ask the company d directly. Also you can tell them you think the boxes should have directions.

So do they not have a RO?

The thing about conditioners is that you really can use them for multiple purposes. For example, I use GVP conditioning balm for a RO, but when my hair is feeling dry I use it as a leave-in for extra moisture.

It really depends on how much moisture and protein your hair needs, which unfortunately requires some trial and error. It always helps to know your hair's properties, though (porosity, especially).

That said, most people I know use the milk as a leave-in or moisturizing styler.

So is the shampoo supposed to be a conditioning cleanser? Typically I use about a pencil eraser sized amount of shampoo just on my scalp and then coat my hair with rinse out conditioner. I just bought this stuff today and I'm looking forward to trying it tomorrow. I've been reading here and trying to figure out how to best use it. I'm thinking I should use it more like a cleansing conditioner and use it on all of my hair? I'm scared it will leave my hair feeling greasy even though that is not typically a problem for me. Opinions?

I have the SM smoothie and it really helps promote curls for me, I do wish they had directions though! Geez.
