How does you indian hair (straight, wavy and curly) react to Silicon Mix conditioner? How exactly do you use it? Does make it fluffy and light? Does it add a little texture to your hair? 
My Wag NB is acting very different since I've used this...don't know if I like it yet, I have flyways and it's a little poofy..

I got the same results that you had mimi. I never really liked the stuff. It made the hair too soft, which led to poof and frizz...

It's VERY easy to overdose on Silicon Mix.  You have to be careful, especially with Indian textures that are already somewhat soft/satiny.  If you leave it on too long, you will have a limp, lifeless head of hair.  My EPRT loved it but I also managed to overdose with it once when I put the hair in the microwave with Silicon Mix.  Big mistake.  I had to rewash with a Clarifying shampoo.  If you use the right amount, Silicon Mix makes the hair very soft, shiny, and more manageable with great body.  With the EP Natural Body I have now, at first I was thinking I needed to stay FAR, FAR away from Silicon mix because it is very soft, satiny hair already, but I used it last week and kept it on for just a couple of minutes and it turned out great.

I always thought it was just for tangling weaves, I have heard most people say it works wonders for tangling weaves!!

ITA with JazziLady. I just like to use it with hair that has tangled or is rough only and even then I like to use a small amount and then I will go back and use more but very carefully. Because when you overdose with that stuff your hair is just not the same.!

Just used it before an install on Friday. I shampooed the IH. com virgin straight hair with Dove (blue bottle) and lightly coated the haire with Silicon Mix. I put it in the microwave inside a ziplock for 30 sec. Afterward I washed for about 5 minutes straight in cold water to make sure it was completely rinsed out, then sprayed some Dove leave in on it. I unraveled the bundle and let it air dry. I'm on day 3 with my install and its is beautiful. No tangles, bouncy, shiny and no shedding and I didnt seal.Tongue
 
I will post pics later on...

IVE BEEN USING WAG NB SINCE 4/07(CURRENTLY USING SAME 4 OZ FROM THE INITIAL INSTALL) AND I LOVE IT. FOR  MYSELF, BIOLAGE HYDRATING POO AND COND WORK WONDERS. I MAY ADD SOME LEAVE IN CONDITIONER FROM A MAKER CALLED YAKI. ITS A SPRAY FOR WEAVES THAT LEAVES A NICE SCENT AND NO BUILDUP. BIOLAGE DEFINITELY WORKS , ALWAYS LEAVING MY HAIR SOFT AND SILKY.

It works like a charm on "processed" hair. Virgin hair doesn't need such a heavy conditioner.
