    Try my Fruit Smoothie Conditioner: 4 or 5 juices of fruit, oil, milk, honey. Mix and go. Leave on for 1 hour and then rinse out. I love it.

    I have a recipe for those of you that like to use gels in their hair.

    Things You Will Need:

    • Agar Agar - cup [you can substitute Agar agar with any other vegan gelatin substitute]
    • Aloe vera gel - cup [I use the Aloe Life brand]
    • Essential oil (for aroma) - 10 drops


    Agar agar is basically derived from seaweed and in used in making many of the jelly recipes. It is known for its elastic properties and you can also make great hair gel out of it.

    Directions:
    1. First step to prepare this recipe is to dissolve the agar agar granules. Pour some water into a saucepan and add agar agar flakes to it.

    2. Heat the saucepan until the flakes dissolve completely. Once these flakes are dissolved, remove the saucepan from heat and whisk in the essential oil and aloe vera to it.

    3. Transfer the solution to a container and refrigerate it for at least 6 hours. You can also refrigerate it overnight. When the solution is set you can use the gel for your hair. You can store this homemade hair gel at normal temperature in your bathroom.

    Great recipes! I used vinegar rinse as my regular condition. I will try Aloe Vera rinses as and see. Does honey rinse has a ph between 4 and 5.5 ?

    I make most of my own products. The only staple products I buy are Aubrey organics conditioners. I treat myself to a few natural products occasionally and even then it is mainly just samples
    • Pre-Poo (Aubrey Organics GPB conditioner mixed with JBCO and Honey)
    • Shampoo (African Black Soap & Rosewater)
    • Deep Conditioner (Aubrey Organics White Camellia)
    • Spritz (Rosewater)
    • Homemade oil concoctions
    I want to make a hair butter this winter

    Why are you trying so hard to blend in when you were born to stand out

    I make my own leave-in conditioners and daily moisturizers. I do buy my Tea Tree Tingle sulfate free shampoo from Trader Joes. I don't do weekly deep treatments or rinse out conditioners on my hair because I've found that my 4B hair dosen't need it. Instead I make a mixture of Shea Butter, coconut oil and olive oil/almond oil and use it as my leave-in conditioner after shampooing. I also use this mixture or coconut oil alone as my daily moisturizer. In addition when my hair needs spritzing I make my own leave in spritz with Sodium Lactate, water, castor oil and vanilla oil.
    Blessings to you Always.

    I am currently making a hair tea to add t my routine. I typically use home made stuff and right now I am using aloe mixed with glycerin or just pure glycerin for my moisturizer. It seems like aloe as a leave in is making my hair dull, but glycerin adds the shine. I am using the aloe directly on my scalp to help heal it from one of the major reactions that I had from a commercial product. I DO use commercial products on my daughter like Tea Tree Tingle (Trader Joe's) and Oyin Whipped Pudding for moisture. Our hair IS SO DIFFERENT!! Both nappy, but SO DIFFERENT!!
