Showing My Tresses Some Love

If you have kinky curly coily hair you are most likely to be a moisture seeker like me.

About two months ago I started treating my tresses on a weekly basis with either a moisturizing or protein feeding treatment.

I find that when I go to look for treatments at the stores they are either pricey or have a list of ingredients I am not familiar with at all. Its hard to find products for natural hair where I live. So I look for do-it-yourself (DIY) recipes that I can make at home.

This mix did something wonderful to my hair in the way of shine and moisture.

First I blended a small banana until it was extra smooth. If you don’t do this you may end up with bits of banana in your hair. Not a good thing.
I added 1 teaspoon of honey, 1 teaspoon glycerin, 1 tablespoon amla oil, 1 egg yolk, 1 tablespoon of castor oil and enough Hello Hydration Conditioner to make it the consistency of a conditioner that doesn’t drip all over the place.
Mix all of this really well.

I like to apply to detangled hair before I wash because I like to make sure the banana is washed out. Sometimes I add a little coconut oil to my shampoo. But everyone’s hair is not the same, I suggest you experiment and do what works for you.
I don’t have a hooded dryer or steamer and I believe in deep conditioning with heat so I cover my head with plastic and either a scarf or bonnet. If I’m not going to be too busy I will wrap a towel around my head to trap the heat that inevitably builds. For about 30 min to 2 hours.

This ensures that the conditioner penetrates your hair strands.

I then wash my hair and apply my Tressemme Naturals Conditioner and rinse with really cool water.

Loved my shine after…
