i've decided to try to stretch my products, such as my leave-in and deep conditioner, instead of using them straight from the bottle. I also decided to do this because I wanted a more liquidy moisturizer. I did this mixture today and baggyed with it for a few hours. so far my hair feels and looks shiner and softer, better than when I used the whipped ends by itself.
this leave-in is inspired by kimmaytube's ph conditioner. 

2 TBSP hairveda's whipped ends (or any conditioner)
2 TBSP avocado conditioner (or any conditioner)
4 TBSP aloe vera gel
2 TBSP shikakai cocasta oil
2 TBSP jojoba oil 
  water until desired consistency.

part of the process of japanese straightening is washing the hair 3 days after chemical service. I just washed my hair and it feels so manageable! only the roots got japanese straightened, but doing my hair was so much easier. I'm pretty sure it's because the smooth roots do not tangle easy, affecting the strands under it. just like how when new growth comes in, the curly texture tangles more easily and affects the hair underneath. ( that's why when you comb your hair you're suppose to start from the ends to the top. )
