    IS GLYCERIN CONSIDERED AN EMULSIFIER (WILL IT ALLOW WATER MIXTURES AND OILS TO MIX AND NOT SEPARATE)?

    THANKS!!

    no glycerin is not an emulsifier. it's a humectant and an emollient, but it doesn't bind water and oil. actually it does quite the opposite.

    So here is my quirky hair spritz for locs that I call it "Loc 'n' Soft"
    using 100% Coconut Water it makes hair sooooooo soft!

    I have made some for myself & a friend of mine using Coconut Water from the Coconut and left it overnight to be infused up in Okra seeds, Plantain seeds, fenugreek seeds & flaxseeds.

    Added some Chamomile EO to the mix and my hair was the softess ever. I gave some to my friend and his locs were so springie & bouncy with a real nice softness and faint - light scent of Coconut & Chamomile he said that he would do my gardening for a month if I make some more for him.

    This is what I did:
    1 BIG Coconut
    0.5 tsp of each Okra seeds, Plantain seeds, fenugreek seeds & flaxseeds
    1 teeeeeennnie drop of Vege-Glycerin
    1 teeeeeennnie drop of Sea Kelp
    3 drops Chamomile EO or EO of choice
    2 drops of Benzoin (preservative & lifts the scent of Chamomile)

    - Take a Coconut (shake it first to make sure that there is loads of water in there - do not buy the coconut water BUY the coconut)

    - Crack the top of the Coconut open, add the seeds to the Coconut water inside, cover with the lid of the coconut & then again with cling film, leave it (upright) overnight in the fridge for 24 hours.

    - Strain the seeds out from the coconut water

    - Add the other ingredients and pour into a spray bottle.

    HTH

    Enjoy and let me know how it feels for you...

    Deep Conditioner

    Equal parts of the following:

    Honey
    Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    Cholesterol w/Tea Tree Oil
    Nutress Moisturizing Protein Pack (any protein conditioner will do)

    Mix all ingredients together; apply to your hair and sit under the heating cap for 30 mins.

    It leaves my hair incredibly soft.

    Ok...here is a recipe for a leave in condish that I got from another site and tweeted it for myself

    1 cup moisturing condish ( I used Suave Humentiant)
    1/2 cup leave in condish (liquidy like Infusium)
    1/2 cup oil of choice (i used olive and sweet almond)
    2 tblspoons of glycerine

    Mix well and pour into bottle...makes about 16 oz of a nice, thick leave in. I used it this morning on my shake and go before a used gel for hold...I have nice hold without the cruchiness that most gels leave! This works much better for me b/c most leave in condish don&#39;t do anything for my hair

    are these recipes loc friendly? i have waist length locs, and would love to try some of these recipes out. right now i am relying on a routine washing, good diet, and a little bit of olive/coconut/shea butter (whatever is handy at the time) for most of my hair maintenance. any suggestions would be helpful, thanks!

    peace

    I have a yummy black soap shampoo that has left my hair feeling INCREDIBLE after rinsing. All I need do NOW is find a pretty bottle to put it all in.

    1 4 oz bar of black soap
    1/3 cup honey
    1/4 cup olive oil
    1/4 cup vinegar
    almond extract for fragrance
    about 1 1/2 cups of strongly steeped hair tea. I use vanilla and chamomile.

    Mix it all together in a 16 oz container. Add water the rest of the way if needed. Allow bar to slowly dissolve, shake, and then pour some out into a smaller bottle for daily use.

    @shortylonglocs
    The Loc &#39;n&#39; Soft recipe is deffinately for locs although I don&#39;t have locs I use it all the time.

    A close friend does have locs and everytime I see him with a Coconut I know what he&#39;s gonna do with it.
    He loves the spritz in his locs!

    Coconut water - from the Coconut - makes hair soooooooo soft and really moist!
    The only problem is that you must make it in small batches & keep it in the fridge & use it up within 2 weeks.

    Try this recipe:
    Great for moisture - excellent for locs - apply when you do your twists as it will make a twist out look fluffy. Great for the night time plaiters & silk wrappers out there too ... like me

    Coconut & Honey Spritz
    Equal amounts of
    Coconut Water from the Coconut
    100% Aloe Vera Juice
    Teenie bit of Honey
    1 drop of Rosemary or Sage EO
    2 drops of Vanilla EO or EO of choice
    1 drop of Benzoin to lift the scent of the others and preserve it for a short while.

    Pour into a bottle and shake it up :wub: Coconut Water from the Coconut - beautiful stuff!
