Kally in Puerto Rico wrote: “Hola Aleida! My question is, for a four-year-old girl could I use Silicon Mix without any problem? Because I used it on her a few months ago and her hair came out gorgeous but I stopped using it on her because I wasn't sure that it was good at her age. Gracias!”Here's the response from Laboratorios Rivas:  ”We wish to inform you that our products are designed to be used on every type of hair. The application of these products on a girl of this age should be under adult supervision, thus avoiding contact with the eyes that could cause a burning sensation.”

Dear aleida, I am African American and the Silicon Mix I use on my hair is great /// I also use on my face and body at night // It feels real smooth in the morning. —Constance W., Fort Lauderdale, FL

Silicon Mix - Kanechom Sets

Kanechom + Silicon Mix Combo Combining Dominican Silicon Mix and Brazilian Kanechom conditioners is the latest Internet rage, just look in Google or Youtube to see what I mean. Legend has it that it was invented by a Dominican hair stylist; it was supposed to be secret but a client discovered it, posted this video to Youtube, and the rest is history.

CLICK HERE for a typical review (brief quote: “The amount of slip I experienced while rinsing was unlike I've ever experienced ... My hair hasn't felt as good in a long time. It seems more resilient and better more deeply moisturized ... Honestly, I can't see how anyone would try this combination and not fall in love ... This conditioner combination is phenomenal. You get a lot of product for the price. I promise that you will not be disappointed. Trust me.”)
