    Dt = deep treatment. An extremely moisturizing conditioner left on for as long as you have to really moisturize your hair. Most people do this one a week or as often as your hair needs it.

    Li is a leave in such as leave in conditioner. Dt is a deep treatment like your hot oil or a creme based one.
