his Silicon Mix-atrActiva treatment combo is designed for distressed, damaged or rebellious tresses. If you're lucky enough to have tresses that don't currently fit any of those descriptions, you can use it as a preventative measure to make sure your hair stays happy, or even to revitalise that bundle of Remy hair you were hoping to reuse. Whichever reason, this treatment combo gives such deep conditioning moisture that it carries you through the week.
The penetrating nutrients, hydration and slip that atrActiva-Silicon Mix delivers and seals in, makes your hair healthier, more elastic, more manoeuvrable, and thus easier to style.
For all the acclaim it gets on its own, to really put Silicon Mix's super-sealing powers to work requires an equally powerful underlying deep treatment, one which can provide the healthy nutrients and vital moisture that Silicone Mix is designed to lock in.
Enter: atrActiva's Multivitamin Treatment, La Reina of long-term moisture. atrActiva's Multivitamin Treatment's plentiful nutrients (it includes Vitamins A, D, E and K) make it the ultimate, nourishing underlayer.
To get the best out of these two conditioners, you don't mix them; you treat them like paint and layer. While mixing won't result in flaking or clumping, these two Dominican conditioners work best together when you plaster your hair with one on top of the other. Since atrActiva Multivitamin Treatment is a super-moisturizer, and Silicon Mix is a super-sealer your hair gets the most benefit when layering Silicon Mix over atrActiva, on freshly washed wet hair. This way you'll be moisturising with atrActiva Multivitamin Treatment, and sealing with Silicon Mix Treatment.

For best results, there are 5 steps to take when using Silicon Mix:
Step 1: Cleanse
Step 2: Rinse
Step 3: Apply atrActiva Multivitamin Treatment
Step 4: Apply Silicon Mix Treatment
Step 5: Rinse
Step 1: CLEANSE
Sometimes conditioners, grease, gels, leave-ins, pomades and even certain shampoos leave residue on our hair shaft that prevents us from getting the ultimate benefit from deep treatments. So, the first step of reaping the benefits from your deep treatment is to thoroughly clean your hair.
You'll know your tresses are thoroughly clean when water droplets run clear from your hair (non-coloured hair only), there is no hint of a layer of grime on your scalp, and your strands feel free and move with ease.
The best way to ensure that your hair gets thoroughly clean, (and to prevent tangling) is to section your hair. Wind it up it into 4 parts, and shampoo each section separately (big twists, or slide-in clips usually facilitate ease in unwinding and help hold hair well).
(*Skip the massage, if you have high blood pressure or have been advised accordingly by your doctor.)
From step 5 on, it depends on your styling plans; if you are blowdrying or straightening, then protect with atrActiva Shine Drop Serum first. If you're letting your hair air-dry, then try your favourite pure oil on wet hair first, before adding leave-ins when dry.
This Silicon Mix-atrActiva Multivitamin Treatment works fantastic on Remy hair as well, so if you want to extend the life on your weave then keep a lookout for your step-by-step post coming soon.
