I need a little help from my Curl Junkie fans

So I know quite a few of you ladies love CJ and I was wondering if anyone has used Repair Me! Reconstructive Hair Treatment or the Beauticurls Strengthening Hair Conditioner (or both to compare)? I'm looking for a good protein based DC. My hair can handle protein so I'm looking for my HG protein treatment. I have used Aubrey Organic's GPB conditioner and I almost feel like it wasn't enough protein for my hair although I do like it. It's been a while since I did a protein treatment so I was looking for some stuff to order.

    +1 on both counts. The Repair Me is my HG PT. It makes your hair feel so good that you will be tempted to leave it in (don't do it..LOL!). It's a great detangler as well and left my hair feeling soft and springy.

    The Strengthening condish is more of a rinseout (some use it as a LI) for those needing a pulse of protein, but it's not better than the Repair Me by any means.

    If your hair likes protein, I say go with the Repair Me! I enjoy the Beauticurls Strengthening as a DC/PT, but I'm protein sensitive (I liken it to GPB). Repair Me! is great though, I use it after a flat ironing session and my curls pop right back.

    Yes and I hate floral smells which is why I swapped it away. It works as a nice light PT though.

    Thanks ladies!

    @moosegrl I was looking at that one too.

    Ladies, do you have to follow the Repair Me with a moisturizing DT? Call me lazy, but I hate stepping in and out of the shower to rinse out DTs. I
    occasionally use Curl Fix as a LI, though it's a lighter PT.

    You should, I do, but there are a few ppl that don't.

    Thanks, Naturalista. CJ products are pretty moisturizing, and I was wondering where Repair Me fell on the scale. Knowing me, I'll first try using the Repair Me followed by Deep Fix or Rehab as a LI.
