Default CJ Repair Me vs. SS Protein Treatment?

I've been using the Spiral Solutions protein treatment followed by their Deeply Decadent moisturizing treatment for a few months now, and the combo works great for my hair. (3b, fine, medium density, low-po.) But I'm sick of having to do two treatments -- it takes all afternoon!

For people who've tried both: How does the CJ Repair Me compare to using those two SS products? If I could get similar results from a single product, it'd be well worth the $$.

Thanks!

I don't DT after either of them, so I'm not sure what that would mean for you. I find them both moisturizing. The CJ Repair Me is a stronger PT, if that helps.

I've tried both but I can't remember how the SS RPT was in comparison since CJ products are a little cheaper. The CJ Repair Me is very moisturizing as well as packing a nice protein punch.

If you're wanting to skip the DT, I'd definitely go with the RM! You can always get a sample or two from kathymack to try out.
