Giovanni's Smooth as Silk Cond.

If you got this, how would you use it? I know everyone has different properties, but for myself I do not know what to do with it.

So far, I use it as a RO.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

Here are the ingredients:

Aqua (water), cetyl alcohol, stearyl alcohol, butylene glycol, cetrimonium bromide, phenoxyethanol, ethylhexylglycerin, natural fragrance, hydrolyzed soy protein, *chamomilla recutita (matricaria) leaf extract, citrus aurantium dulcis (valencia orange) extract, *citrus grandis (grapefruit) fruit extract, *cymbopogon schoenanthus (lemongrass) extract, *echinacea purpurea extract, *ginkgo biloba extract, *glycine soja (soybean) seed extract, *lavandula angustifolia (lavender) extract, *rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, *macrocystis pyrifera (sea kelp) extract, *mangifera indica (mango) extract, *Salix alba (willow bark)

Co-wash, leave in, and gel: Alba botanica coconut cond., ogx mousse, &/or super wet look gel.

I use it as an RO. It's pretty protein-packed so not for everyone. I bet some could use it as a PT. I'm sure the protein-loving curlies could use it as a leave-in as well. ::shrug::

I'd use it as a leave in because my hair loves protein and I often don't bother with a rinse out anyway. Best thing to do is experiment.

CO-wash: Inecto coconut/ Elvive Volume Collagen

Styler: Umberto Giannini jelly, Au Naturale styling gelee
Flour sack towel, pixie diffuse or air dry.
Experimenting with: benign neglect
I never realised this was protein heavy, you live and learn! I use it as a rinse out but only when I'm going to straighten my hair, it gives me better results than my usual co.

Only in small doses, I typically only use a protein co once a week.
