    Just recently got a sample of this from KathyMack & have to say I love it, too! I get weighed down easily, too, and this conditioner moisturizes perfectly without being too heavy!
    2a/2b/2c - I've experienced them all :iconbiggrin:

    Still not sure about porosity/protein... my hair takes forever to dry & products often weigh it down, but I like protein. Thus I'm confused.

    I also ordered CJ curl assurance condish. I like to use as a leave in. Have you guys used the Darcy's as a deep treatment? Thanks for the feedback.

    I haven't used it as a deep conditioner. I love it as a rinse-out.

    Tried it out last night for the first time, but accidentally overconditioned with my leave in so can't really tell yet how it works for me. It felt as moisturizing as my current DT which is a plus, good for detangling, love the smell. I think I'm going to like it.

    Glad you liked it!

    I use my darcy's as a number of things....CO wash, regular RO condish, and DT occasionally too. It works well for me as all of them. I don't use it as a LI usually, but then again I don't usually use LI's anyway. HTH!

    After trying several times, I must say this is really a great product. A little goes a very long way. I also appreciate how it doesn't seem to over condition my hair like Jessicurl DT does with me.

    Would like to say I am equally impressed with the CJ curl assurance condish I've been using, but not so much. I think they must have changed the formula cause the sample I had from a couple years ago seemed to work much better as a rinse out and leave in...

    Valcurl- Have you used it for just a rinse out? If so, how did you like it? I am thinking about trying this product but would use it for a RO and just don't want it to weigh me down...Although Rymorg has used it for a RO and likes it...Maybe I will try it!

    I have used it as a RO, but used very little. It did fine for me and I get overconditioned easily.
