Good topic. You know what I use so I won't bother. But I am gonna turn your own question on you. What do you use and what is your technique?
I'm curious :)

I was thinking that I was getting to know your hair habits pretty well, and then- you got a wild hair on us....EVCO! LOL:}(just kidding, I had to throw that one in)
*Sally's have it on sale this month for a whopping 3.49 (u kno u like a good deal)
My last d/c: aussie 3min miracle, suave humectant, honey, evoo mix, peppermint/tea tree oil. Mixed it, then lefted in my hair for 1hr. (alot right....)under processing cap, no heat. -Products and Technique!-....whowho...
I am trying to simplify, starting next relaxer I will be doing something different....

I DC with Shea Butter Mango and Cholestrol and ORS Replenishing Pak.. I'm transitioning so I am just trying to find something that will give me good slip and help on detangling.. The 2 products I mentioned works well.. I also use a Dominician Product Capilo Cinnamon
My technique nothing special.. I apply from root to tip and sometimes I sit under the dryer and or steamer..

KC, all those products for one Deep conditioning treatment. WOW. Did someone say covering all the bases? lol
I am not loving the EVCO as a DC in my hair. Will not do that again. It feels heavenly on my skin though. OMG. That is a keeper.
Letha, your DC products sound good. It's all about the slip when you have all that newgrowth especially since you are transitioning.

@Letha- Slip and Detangling is a dream come true for most.....If we get that down to a science then everything else is all up hill....I'm still working on it...sometimes I think I have it...at other times I'm not so sure...whowho...*Thanks for your input.
*How long have you been Transitioning or how many weeks post relaxer are you?

@Zann-Did you use it alone or did you add it to your DC - and would you be willing to try EVCO as an overnite pre-poo? Rave reviews on that one...It's suppose to make your hair feel silky and moisturized....

Wow u go girl, are you using heat at all?

I used the EVCO alone in my hair as a hot oil treatment. I heat it up in the microwave, apply it from root to tip, put on a shower cap and sit under the dryer for 13 mins. By the way, I did it on freshly shampooed hair. So afterwards, I just rinsed the oil out and then condition with vo5 in the shower.
I might try to overnight pre-poo with it. But uhm...I am not holding my breath on that silky part.
