Today, I did a new DC mix, and I really liked it. While it didn’t have a lot of slip, it really made my hair smooth and decreased frizz. It was also very easy to make! Here’s my recipe:
– 1 cup of mayo (I used the EVOO kind)
– 1/2 cup of aloe vera gel (the watery kind by Lily of the Desert, not the kind for skin)
– 1/4 cup coconut oil
– 3 fenugreek seed capsules (powder removed from caps)
It ended up looking like this:
I stirred until it was very smooth and creamy (which was easy to do), and applied to my hair in eight sections. I ended up leaving it on for a couple of hours. While I was rinsing it, my hair felt smooth…but not that soft (which usually happens to me when I apply cold things to my hair). However, I did a quick condition with VO5 after rinsing, and the moisture was great, much better than usual! VO5 is usually very thin and not incredibly moisturizing for me – I use it for quick cowashes.
Here’s a pic of Izzy right out of the shower – oh how I wish I wasn’t too skurred to let her dry without product, but I’m so sure she would frizz out!
As you can see, lol, the curls get tighter around the perimeter. This is going to be interesting as it grows out. Overall, I’d definitely do this DC again – it’s super cheap and smoothing! Next time, I think I am going to coconut milk and honey as well.
Anywho, that’s all I got! Check y’all lata!
Adding Hair Update: On October 26th, Izzy turned 10 months old!!! Remember the BC? For more information on my color, check out my post on henna, which I used over my dye job from May – I had used Feria Iced Mocha and Garnier Herbashine in Dark Golden Blonde (Herbashine has no ammonia, and I found it much less drying than Feria).
