I just love mixing different types of conditioners when I deep condition my hair as well as my lfs. What conditioners do you mix together? This is what I did last night. I mixed:

Silicon Mix
Cowboy Magic Rose Water Conditioner
Lustra Silks Cholesterol Conditioner (3 different kinds: Aleo Vera, Olive Oil, and Shea/Mango Butter)

I have also just mixed:
Silicon Mix, Cowboy Magic Rose Water, and Chi Curl Preserve
Or
Silicon Mix and Chi Curl Preserve

Or just plain Cowboy Magic Rose Water Conditioner (work really great alone)

I don't have them mixed together in a jar, I just mix them in my hand and slather it on my lf.
I love the results when I use conditioners alone, but it seems like I get better results when I mix them together. So what is your conditioner mix?

For my own hair I just use the three different Cholesterol Conditioners .

Edited to say:  that I nuke my lfs for 2 , 20 second intervals and then wrap them in a heating pad on low heat from 30 mins up to an hour or more depending on the time and the condition of the hair. You can do the same with a heating cap, or wrapping a warm towel around the plastic bag, or submerging your plastic bag with your lf  in it in warm water to deep condition.

On my hair I buy salon quality conditioners and "juice them up" with melted shea butter and some honey or yogurt.
 
On my lf, I admit that I don't put the most expensive ones on them but I use whatever's handy and then put my lf in a plastic bag and place it in my heating cap for about an hour.  I used to use super expensive conditioners on my LF but it didn't seem to make a difference so I save the really good stuff for what's growing out of my head

I always mix conditioners. I was reading that the more expensive conditioners contain silicone. The more expensive the better.
Do u ever mix the conditioners then put the LF in a plastic cap theb under a hair dryer?
 
 You can do that or put it in the micro wave for 30 seconds do it 15 seconds at a time though.

Do you ever worry that the heating cap could "melt" the ziplock bag or ruin the lf somehow?

I use silicone mix and hydro veil (that hydro veil is the bomb!)  My units come out soft, silky and moisturized!  Hydro veil revived an old unit of mine that will be one year old in July.  I thought I was gonna have to throw it away-----until hydro veil (I sound like a commercial--right?) 
 
But seriously, I used the leave in conditioner and nuked it for about 1 minute (in 15 second intervals) and viola!  She's like new again!
