: The Kimmaytube leave-in -- is it all necessary?
By now, most people on the hair boards know about the wonderful leave-in recipe from Kimmaytube.
But I have a question: are
the ingredients in the leave-in actually necessary?
and oils have pHs of 7 (which doesn't help or harm the hair), and the aloe vera juice has a pH of 4.0-4.5 (which is what actually closes the hair's cuticles), then couldn't you just remove the
and oils altogether and just use the aloe vera juice with a pH of 4.0-4.5?
If the AVJ is the ingredient that actually closes the hair's cuticles, then the other ingredients just seem to be fillers for the leave-in concoction and not actually necessary, so couldn't you just use the AVJ alone (as a daily spritz or something) and just seal with your favorite butter/oil (or whatever)?
