New Du

Saturday, May 8th, 2010

I got a new hair style today. Whatever. I didn’t tell her to cut it this short. I am frustrated. The style may look okay but it’s not what I asked her to do. This has happened quite a bit. So I am in search of a new stylist in NYC. Any recommendations?

Transitioning from permed to natural is soooo hard!

Before a visit to the salon I had to make my Avocado treatment. I wanted it thicker so I changed the ingredients. This time I used:

3 avocados

3 table spoons of avocado oil

3 tables spoons of olive oil

3 table spoons of coconut oil

I left out the molasses. There’s no particular reason why. I just did.

I discovered that the avocados blend better after letting them sit room temperature for a week or so. The treatment did not turn out creamy like before. I think that is because I started to make the conditioner right after I bought the fruit and they didn’t get a chance to ripen.

Check out my process.

All I needed was some sea salt and a bag of chips

After washing my hair it likes to create these little knots

    Wow – your hair looks great.

    I just did a similar treatment this past weekend. I added organic coconut milk and grapeseed oil to my mixture. Wish I would have came across you advice sooner because I used my avocado straight from the fridge – and even after rinsing twice – still have bits of avocado in my hair – lol

    Your ingredients sound great! It’s just best to let the fruit sit in room temperture for a week or more. Then it will blend nicely.
