DT reccomendation??

Looking for suggestions on some good DT to restore moisture that are protein free and easy on the oils (heavy oils like olive, coconut, and grapeseed are not my friend). Or just some ingredients to look for.

Currently, I use Garnier pure clean condish every 2 weeks & it helps BUT the smell is overpowering & combined w/my other products is downright obnoxious.:eek:

    Tried it this afternoon and REALLY liked it super soft and shiny! Yay, now I can throw that stinky stuff out :-)
    I blended slightly more condish than glycerin together (about 1tsp total) let it sit clipped up while for about 10-15 mins. Does this sound correct or should I be using more/less glycerin? Thanks so much for the advice!

    Thank you for this tip!

    Adding pure vegetable glycerin to a rinse-out worked better than almost anything I've tried to keep my hair moisturized all day. So simple, yet so effective.
    I am much less scared of winter weather/low dews now. :)
