I've been natural for around 2 years and have never deep conditioned my hair. But a woman I know with what seems to be 3B curls told me about a conditioner called Silicon Mix and gushed so much about how soft it made her hair that I decided to give it a try.

The conditioner can be used as a regular conditioner or a deep conditioner. The woman who told me about it uses it while she's showering like a regular conditioner but I decided to do a deep conditioning treatment with it for the first time today. All I can say is, wow!

I started off my wash day with a 15 minute pre-poo using coconut oil, then shampooed my hair as usual, then applied the Silicon Mix and sat under a hooded dryer on medium heat with my hair in 4 bantu knots and a plastic cap for 30 minutes.

After rinsing the conditioner out, my hair was so curly! My hair has always been frizzy and undefined after I washed it. I have always assumed that that was simply how 4b hair was. Well after the deep conditioning treatment, my curls are very defined. They look healthy and shiny in a way that I'm amazed at. The fact that my curls now look completely 4A with lots of 3C mixed in (just from a simple deep conditioning treatment) has me wondering if my hair has taken on the appearance of 4B for all this time simply because it wasn't moisturized properly.

I am definitely going to be deep conditioning regularly now!

Normal porosity, high density, medium width strands.

Current length: Between armpit length and bra strap length
Short-term goal: Bra strap length
Long-term goal: Mid-back length
Ultimate Goal: Waist length

I also really want to try this conditioner. It has had hype for a few years especially mixed w/ Kanechom conditioners. I want to try the Bambu version though since it's protein free.

And yes a good deep condition can definitely make your curls pop. It's been so moisturized that your hair becomes happy lol

If I were to use my V05 Moisture Milks conditioner in the same way I used the Silicon Mix, would it be as effective? Or do you need an actual deep conditioner to thoroughly deep condition your hair?

Add some honey and coconut oil to it (and/or whatever else is beneficial for your specific hair) and boom.. you've got a deep conditioner.

I use an actual deep conditioner & love it. The only reason I'm changing my deep conditioner is because in order for my curls to pop I need to hydrate my curls vs moisturize them. 4b & c hair needs more moisture than any other hair type. So I'm switching my deep conditioner from Eden body works to as I am hydration elation. If your hair is 4b or c, try the Eden body works deep conditioner. I like it in that it leaves my hair soft, but it's too heavy for my hair leaving it greasy.
If you go to the naturally curly website the Eden body works line is suggested for 4b hair.

I now have 3 of the Kanechom conditioners. Goat's milk, Liso Intenso, and Chocolate. I like them a lot. I have yet to use them with Silicon Mix Bambu but can only imagine!
So glad! I love deep conditioning
I really enjoy pampering my hair, and think it's grateful after so many years of me torturing it
