Curlgirl64's all natural deep conditioner
Jan 31st, 2007 at 2:28pm
 
I decided to make my own all natural(if ya wanna call it vegan,go ahead!) deep conditioner.
In a bain marie(double boiler)I use a mason jar for heating the oils and then transfer to a pyrex bowl.
A good size chunk of cocoa butter(appox. 1 Tsp.)
1 Tbsp. Mango butter
1/2 Tbsp. jojoba oil
1/2 Tbsp. Sweet almond oil
heat this until cocoa butter is melted.
Shut heat,add 1 can (14oz.) organic coconut milk
Mix well.  Transfer to a pyrex bowl.  Add your favorite conditioner to get a nice consistency.(I used Nature's Gate)about 4oz.
Add 5 drops of each e/o lavender,rosemary and sage.  You could use any combo. of e/o's that you like though.
Mix well.
Apply to dry hair and really be generous to coat all of your hair.
Put on a shower cap and wrap a towel or turb.
Sit under a bonnet hair dryer or apply any type of heat for 30 minutes.
Rinse well and then shampoo and acv.
First time to make this and use it and my hair feels very soft and nice. Smiley
This makes alot,so any leftovers should be refridgerated.  I'm guessing that you should use the leftovers in a week.  Since there are no preservatives in it, it probably won't be good after a week.
I used up all of it the first go around.  If your hair is shorter,there will be leftovers!!

I am dying to try this conditioner.  When you look at how shiney Curly64's hair is, how could you not want to try it.  It is turning out to be a challenge.  I have been from health store to heath store looking for the cocoa and mango butter and even the sweet almond oil.  I was getting desperate enough to go to Ebay but was afraid of it melting in the mail.  Finally today I found a little health store that had the cocoa butter and will order the other two ingredients in for me, so in a week or two...I am trying this stuff.  I will let you know how it goes.

Where do you buy almond oil and jojoba oil?  I'd like to try them but I've never seen them in stores.  Then again I've never really looked  Grin.  I'm going to go to Whole Foods soon and see if they have it there...
