Default What conditioners have you mixed to get even better results?

I love mixing my conditioners. I can't help it sometimes, I feel like some of them work so well together I can come out of the shower and my hair feels like I did a deep treatment.

I've tried the Giovanni smooth as silk with the Aussie 3 min miracle and it was great!
I also mixed the Giovanni with the GVP conditioning balm and the Shea Moisture conditioner.
I've mixed the Tresemme Naturals with the Loreal Ever Sleek deep conditioner (which I use to detangle or as a rinse out not for deep treatments)

I liked all those combos.

Oh and I mix the Suave Naturals conditioners with just about everything.

I haven't thought of mixing conditioners! I mix foundation for my face all of the time. It's liberating; I never have to worry whether I bought the right shade as I can tweak it (and the texture). Mixing conditioners could be similarly freeing!

Actually, this morning I happened to mix EO Keratin conditioner coconut + hibiscus with Desert Essence Shea Butter Repairing conditioner. I only did it because there was not enough left from the EO, but I'm loving how my hair feels and looks now! Best hair day since 3 weeks, for sure.

I find that when I mix conditioners my hair ends up feeling great as well.

Right now for my condition only to style I'm mixing suave everlasting sun and KCNT. Love that combo! Silky, shiny, and bouncy curls.

I've been mixing suave naturals coconut with CJ smoothing lotion. I was using the CJSL as my LI, but it was just too much for my hair. I didn't want to give it up completely because it has amazing slip for detangling, so now I mix a little with my RO. Best of both worlds

I'll have to give this combo a try.

For me, yes to carrots with matrix conditioning balm works really really well.
