Giovanni's Smooth as Silk Cond.

If you got this, how would you use it? I know everyone has different properties, but for myself I do not know what to do with it.

So far, I use it as a RO.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

    I use it as an RO. It's pretty protein-packed so not for everyone. I bet some could use it as a PT. I'm sure the protein-loving curlies could use it as a leave-in as well. ::shrug::
    2bc/ f / ii. low porosity roots + normal-high porosity shaft where bleached. normal elasticity.

    Currently using:
    Poo: Earthbath Oatmeal & Aloe
    RO: V05 Kiwi Lime
    LI: CJ Smoothing Lotion
    Styler: UFD CM, CJ PP
    PT: CJ Repair Me

    :thumright: hydrolized protein, jelly stylers
    :angry8: guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride, sulfates, jojoba oil

    I'd use it as a leave in because my hair loves protein and I often don't bother with a rinse out anyway. Best thing to do is experiment.

    CO-wash: Inecto coconut/ Elvive Volume Collagen

    Flour sack towel, pixie diffuse or air dry.
    Experimenting with: benign neglect

    I never realised this was protein heavy, you live and learn! I use it as a rinse out but only when I'm going to straighten my hair, it gives me better results than my usual co.

    I was using it as a leave in for a bit, but I also have been using the olive oil eco styler which has protein too. So I felt my hair was a bit straw-like. Then I began using it as RO for now until I found a better use. Thanks!!

    Does your hair not like protein? Thanks for the response!

    Only in small doses, I typically only use a protein co once a week.
