Peanut butter as deep conditioning

I was desperate and needed something to put in my hair to help with the popping and snapping with my ends. So I smoothed peanut butter on my hair, from root to end, all over. Sat under the dryer for about a half an hour with a cap of course, and the results was well worth it. My hair was soft and had a nice gloss on it. It was easy to manage. I made it to the salon, and told my hairdresser what had happened and she said, "that she never heard of that, but it couldn't hurt. We laughed. She's heard of using it to get bubble gum out of your hair, but just as a deep conditioner. We just laughed. If anyone tries this use a peanut butter that is for a diabetic. The sugar can't be good over time.

Lol, interesting! I'd have to do some e-research to see if there is any info on this... but it is definitely something to think about. Haha! Did you just rinse it out or did you use shampoo to help remove it? Also, did your hair smell strongly of peanut butter? (I love to eat the stuff, but I'm not sure I would want to smell like it. LOL!)

I just did a simply rinse out with warm to hot water. And, yes you could smell the peanut butter, but it wasn't bad, or really strong.

This is very interesting. Usually peanut butter in my hair as a kid resulted in ice being applied or cut strands! LOL

Perhaps it was due to a lack of moisture etc...

So not thats co-washing my face and peanut butter in my hair.

Interesting. Nuts do have protein and it could be like a hot oil treatment probably.
Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it.
Wow! First time I've heard of this idea! Good for you, Sexychocolate, for being so creative and innovative!

No offense, but I wouldn't do this. The protein in PB most likely cannot penetrate the hair strand, unlike hydrolyzed proteins, and if I wanted the benefits of using fat on my hair, I'd just use an oil so it's easy to wash out. It just seems like straight PB would be a disaster on my dense hair, I can't even get that stupid Mud Wash out. Cool it worked for you, though.
I use it monthly, its not that pleasant all by its self, but as a ingredient amongst others its awesome. I use coconut oil, mayo, honey a lil mint, 1egg, conditioner and it was ok my curly frizzy would calm, but something was missing, so I read how doc Carver used it as a conditioner and I added it. The results were awesome. Now regular jar didnt work alm the great it just didn't due you need fresh peanut butter all natural or organic with no added oils and SALT. Salt isnt good for your hair. Whole foods and HEB has a machine that grinds the nuts. You have to sit under dryer to release all the oils so they can penetrate the hairs shaft. My hair is bouncy and strong.
