Just another visit to Youtube to kill some time....or so I thought. Little did I know that I was about to stumble upon a video that would radically impact my current regimen. Something inside me prompted me to click when I saw a thumbnail image of a woman swinging her honey colored tresses. Once I clicked, her level of excitement and passion around her salon results at home intrigued me to keep watching.
Finally, after she calms down, she reveals the products which gave her such joy The products shared were a combination of Silicon Mix and Kanechom conditioners. The story behind this blend originates from another Youtuber who was fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of her stylist mixing these two products behind the scenes. Y'all remember those days when stylists at the Dominican salons would whip up concoctions without letting us see what was going into the blends. We are so fortunate to have been granted knowledge of this wonderful combination.
I already owned a large tub of Silicon Mix so all I needed to do was get my hands on the Kanechom. One trip to Amazon easily took care of that for me. Days later, my package arrived. My first impression? I love the size of these Kamechon conditioners. Nowadays, I opt to only purchase large sizes so I can conduct a proper strand ceremony. Not being familiar with the brand, I didn't know which version of the Kanechom to buy so I got two!
The Goat Milk and the Karite Butter were my first purchases. When I took the lid off and eye balled the conditioners, I knew something great was about to happen. They had that glossy, smooth look to them that I like. I knew, from that moment, that I found new staples. I freakin' love nourishing conditioners and these are super nourishing. Not too thick (WEN 613), not too watery. This conditioner is just right. Of the two, the Karite Butter was the more moisturizing.
The Goat's Milk is good if you are looking a moisturizing conditioner with strengthening properties. I'm glad I got both. They seem to balance each other out. I love these conditioners so much that I went back for more. In my Amazon cart, I add the Kanechom Ceramide Conditioner, the Intense Care Mega Hydration Karite Butter (different package from the one I have), and the Crystal Bath. I wanted to stop there but the rave reviews on their Acai conditioner wouldn't let me. I'm so happy I found this line. I wish they didn't make so many varieties cause I'm sure I'll be tempted to try them all.
Although the original Silicon Mix is the one recommended to create this conditioner fusion. I opted to add in my wonderful Proteina de Perla (Pearl Protein) as well. It's always been my favorite of the Silicon Mix line. I thought that if the original worked well, then the Proteina would take it to the next level for me since my hair likes it so much. Boy was I right. So far I've experimented with the Kanemchom/ Silicon Mix twice. The second time I added the Pearl Protein and loved my results much more. The amount of slip I experienced while rinsing was unlike I've ever experienced. I literally had to hold on to my shower door handle to make sure I didn't slip in the tub. My hair hasn't felt as good in a long time. It seems more resilient and
Honestly, I can't see how anyone would try this combination in not fall in love. The only thing to look out for would be eventual build up from the use of silicone. That's why I'm keeping my Neutrogena Anti Residue clarifying shampoo near by. Prior my Kanechom order, I also picked up some Inphenom products but I have absolutely no desire to use them. This currently sit unopened in my product closet. That's how good this Kanechom Mix is. Wash day is this weekend and I'm praying that my second order arrives before then so I can test out the Intense Hydrating Keratin Conditioner and the Ceramide version.
I'll leave you with my final thoughts. This conditioner combination is phenomenal. You get a lot of product for the price. I promise that you will not be disappointed. Trust me.
