I use a rinse out conditioner daily, usually HE Hello Hydration or the Generic Paul Mitchell Detangler. Once a week, I may use Dairy Whip. I sometimes will leave in a small amount of V05 calming chamomile tea before getting out of the shower while the hair is really soaking wet. Then I mix KBB hair nectar with KCKT (about 50/50). On top of that, I mix KCCC with Long Aid Activator Gel (about 25/75)...lately I've been mixing the last two 50/50 because the KCCC gives a bit more hold and I live in a humid climate. I know it sounds like a lot, but it works for me. Hope this helps!
