After coloring and washing my hair with box braids I knew I would have to add some type of conditioner in order to maintain moisture and softness.
To avoid purchasing stuff I wasn’t sure would work I made up a concoction with ingredients I had at home that I know work for my hair.
This is what I did.
· Water. Less than half a bottle
· Kinky Curly’s Knot Today
· Olive oil
· 1 drop of Lavender essential oil for dryness and hair loss
· 1 drop of Ylang Ylang essential oil for dryness and hair loss
I incorporated all of the ingredients.
The mixture was sprayed on my scalp and where I knew my hair was within the braids. Then I massaged everything in.
I really like my homemade leave-in because it left my scalp and hair feeling moist, and conditioned plus it had a nice smell. :0)
