My hair is bombed, blasted, fried and died. After each wash I use a protein reconstructor and then - remember ladies, it is an entirely separate process - a deep moisture treatment.
Have tried them all - Paul mitchel, kerastase, Aussie hair care - the only one that did the deal of adding real, intense, deep, desperately needed moisture was Redken Smooth Down deep Treatment. But that stuff is EXPENSIVE.. Especially if you have to use it every time.
Enter, Mixed Chick Deep Conditioner. Made, I guess for mixed race and kinky-curly hair. That's not me, as it happens (mine is fine, frizzy and bleached to heaven and back again), but the conditioner was STRONG. REALLY GOOD.
The only one I ever found as good or better than the deep treatment Redken smooth down butter thingy - but at a third the price.
I'm gonna keep on buying and buying and buying.
This is an awesome conditioner. Really leaves my hair supple and my curls really healthy and defined and helps keep the tips of my hair healthy. Takes care of split ends! Use it once a week for results! Love it!
HG for my thirsty locks! I am loving Mixed Chicks Deep Conditioner- it's absolutely perfect for my thick, wavy middle eastern hair. I've used other deep conditioners in the past and have found most to be either too heavy/greasy for my hair, or not moisturizing enough. Enter Mixed Chicks Deep Conditioner. I am SO glad I came across this stuff! I used to live in New York City, and received a sample of this with a purchase at Ricky's beauty supply. I loved it so much I bought my own tub, and was thrilled to see that Target stores carry it as well (in the ethnic haircare aisle). Now, while the brand name is cute and catchy, it can be used by mixed and non-mixed chicks alike, as long as you have thick, dense hair that is in occasional (or frequent) need of a thirst quencher.
I use MC Deep Conditioner once or twice a week, or as needed. The consistency is quite thick but easily manageable and sinks in nicely into my hair for lovely slip. I'm left with silky, moisturized locks- it's great for those times when my hair is practically begging for some love in the form of deep conditioner. What I really love about this product is that my hair feels healthy and moisturized once dry, but not weighed down. The smell is incredible- light and not too floral or perfumey- just right and exactly how a good hair product should be.
I am quite picky about what I put in my hair, and let me tell you, this stuff is a total winner in my book. HG, and will definitely repurchase once I run out.
Best purchase I've made this year for my hair. My hair is baby - fine and normal to about mid shaft (the healthy, non over-processed parts), but gets very dry mid shaft down. I have a great protein conditioner, but all the ones I'd been experimenting with to moisturise let me down... until now! Lightly scented and extremely rich, I scooped out a nice palm full from the tub, and hoped for the best. As I rinsed out 5 mins later, I could feel a great difference already, but the real test for me always comes when my hair fully dries. Usually, my ends end up a little frizzy and dry, so I was ecstatic when my hair dried and felt like SILK to touch everywhere and there was virtually no frizzies at all! GRAIL, I cry! I found Mixed Chicks in Winners, and will be scrambling to find more online if I must, as I've never seen this product anywhere in my town before. It's higher priced, but worth every penny!
This is the only product in the 3-step curly hair system that I like from Mixed Chicks. I still use this detangling conditioner; it really works and smells nice. I don't plan to repurchase since I would have to order it online (there arenít any salons that sale Mixed Chicks in my state). I am sure I can find something at Sally's that would be equivalent.
UPDATE: If you like this but don't want to pay the $20 for it try Mixed Silks you can get it from Sally's for $8.
I LOVE this deep conditioner. This is one of the best ones that I've tried. It's an excellent detangler and makes hair super duper soft. It is good at moisturizing too. It has a nice clean scent as well. The only thing I don't like is that I use a lot of conditioner and there isn't enough in that little $25 container. I may get 4 or 5 uses out of it, which turns out to be very expensive. I may splurge for the larger size since it contains substantially more for twice the price.
The conditioner worked well but it did leave my scalp dry and itchy which it wasn't before I used the conditioner. I tried it twice to see if I was just imagining it. In my opinion the Wen shampoo/conditioner has similar ingredients and works better and does not leave the scalp dry.
I'm on my second tub of this and I love it! Im of Latin decent with thick but smooth hair. My top layers are my natural color, 2N and very healthy and shiny but the ends and bottom layers are about a 5B (by goldwell's standards at least) and very damaged, I'm talking about breakage, frizz, and easily get tangled, especially underneath. I use this everytime I wash as a regular conditioner and I leave it in for a few minutes or as long as possible. It makes my hair softer and easier to manage. I do have to keep it off my scalp though it does give me dandruff if I don't but I'm just susceptible to it so no biggie.
Loving this!!!! Higly recommend it for any type of hair!
I'm caucasian with very fried, damaged 2b wavy hair & moderate frizz.
I read such great reviews about this conditioner I decided to try it for $14 at Ricky's for the 8 oz tub jar, though they also sell a giant 33.5 oz pump bottle for $50, which is a nice deal for those who love this product & want it in pump form.
Applying it in the shower is easy -- it's a thick cream that I scoop out of the jar with my fingertips & spread it easily through my hair, detangles well, works quickly, rinses fairly easily, leaves my hair feeling soft & conditioned while it's wet. I dislike the amodimethicone in this product (5th ingredient) & can feel its coated effect still lingering in my hair after rinsing. :( Aren't silicones supposedly bad for curly hair?
After my hair dries it's a tiny bit softer than the usual crispiness I always have thanks to over-processed highlights, but it otherwise doesn't make very much difference in the quality or condition of my hair. The frizz level is still there, so I have to use my usual styling products to manage frizz & give definition to my curls/waves.
I'll have to use this conditioner longer to see how it treats my hair longterm (only a few uses so far), but since I'm not entirely thrilled with it I'm not likely to buy it again. If I do somehow fall in love with this after further use, I'll buy the big economy pump bottle next time.
