Okay, I told myself I wouldn't try any new products until I ran out of my existing ones, but I couldn't resist picking up the Silicon Mix. I've been reading how they changed the ingredients in my beloved ORS Replenishing, so I had to start looking for alternatives if it doesn't work for my hair anymore. I picked the Silicon Mix up last weekend at my local beauty supply store. Even though it's a Dominican product, I have seen it at a lot of the black beauty stores in my area.

I co-washed my hair yesterday and applied the Silicon Mix in 4 sections. I put a plastic cap on and sat under the dryer for 15 minutes. I then applied leave-in and roller set my hair, as usual.
My hair came out thick, light, bouncy and shiny. It felt thicker as I was setting it, so I knew that was a good sign. I was a little worried when I combed out the rollers because it didn't feel as moist as I had hoped. I applied some moisturizer and coconut oil before wrapping my hair. When I woke up, I was in love with my hair. It was definitely moist. I love how thick it looks and feels. I can't stop looking in the mirror! This conditioner does have strong perfume smell, but it doesn't bother me, surprisingly. I can still smell it even after using coconut oil, but it's pretty faint.
Until the ORS Replenishing doesn't work on my hair, I'm going to deep condition with ORS for my first wash of the week, and deep condition with Silicon Mix for my second.
