Mixing products?

This morning I was in a real hurry, so I didn't do my normal routine of layering products. After CO washing and then conditioning, I just mixed equal size globs of [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/AG-Recoil-p-24.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=ag-hair-cosmetics-recoil-curl-activator]re:coil[/buylink], conditioner, and Alagio curl cream in my hand. I mixed it all up in my palms and then raked and scrunched. Then I diffused (which I have to in order to go to work,) but quickly - not carefully using the Pixiecurl method as I usually do.

My hair looks a little frizzy, which I know is from tossing it all over the place when I was drying, but I still have good curl formation and body. Other than the frizz, it looks pretty much like it normally does, which makes me happy.

So, my question - would this work for every day? Or did I just get lucky? I was thinking I could mix up equal amounts of these in a small bottle (just a few days worth) and leave it in the shower, then use it as an "all-in-one" product. Is there a reason I shouldn't do this?

    I have some gels that I have mixed in a smaller bottle because I got sick of layering them in. I would try it a couple more days and see if it was a fluke but even if you dont you have not wasted a ton of product if you do a couple of days worth.

    Hey,

    I mix my products too and it works perfectly fine for me.

    I used to mix some regular condtioner with my styling gel and scrunch that in my hair.
    Now I mix about half a dime size of castor oil with my gel and pu that on my hair.My hair loves it.

    I usually will mix things into my leave in, like CK, recoil, honey, or molasses. I have tried to mix in some gel before and got little white balls. So as long as you don't get that, you should be fine.

    I've been having great success mixing also. I mix something creamy (leave in or boots) with my 2 gels (set me up and biolage gelee) all together in my hand and distribute. No problems, better curls.........so far.
