    After your cut...treat it very gently. Deep conditioning treatments a couple of times a week, then back off to weekly or monthly as it improves.

    Check out the threads for various non-sulfate shampoos, cone-free conditioners, keep the heat away as much as possibel.

    You can also use the Deva OneC as a DT. Has how on the label. Also search these threads as there are tons of DT recipes floating around. I'm liking coconut milk, baby food bananas, 1tbls olive oil, and 1/2 tbls honey all pureed together then heated up a bit and poured on. Cover with a plastic cap and maybe a hot towel to keep the heat in. Leave it on for about an hour then I rinse, co-wash, and condish. It's been giving me really soft hair. There is also a thread on here about a coconut chocolate milk mix that I'm gonna try this week.
