I have. While i like the way my hair feels afterwards, the smell and vinegar fumes are quite a bit to handle. I've moved to using different things when i have the drive to mix them up (molasses, olive oil and honey are amazing mixed), but when lazy, it works well.
The feminine mystique has succeeded in burying millions of American women alive.
newly shorn 4a/b. mommy to 3c curly-boy.
only 4" of natural hair, but still an ingredient junkie. got any recipes?
My mom used to put this on our hair but never alone. It will be warmed up along with olive oil and then an egg was beaten n mixed. It was a great pre-wash conditioner. Yet it was runny and your clothes smelled were stained and smelled like it even after you washed them. I remember my mom classifying shirts just for wash day.
Not a 4a...but I couldn't help responding. I tried this once (using regular Hellmann's) and it was a disaster for me. It stained my favorite bathrobe when it ran/leaked from the plastic shower cap I was wearing...and the smell was permanently embedded in the fabric. Some also got on my pillows and I had to toss the pillowacases and the pillows themselves because the smell would not come out. Please be careful about letting it drip on anything!!! (I loved that robe! )
It didn't do anything to improve my hair at all. And if anything, it made it hard to comb through (didn't think I needed to follow with condish). So I wound up tugging the comb through afterward and losing a lot of hair. It was not a good experience for me. Maybe it will be better for you. Just be careful of drips...and you might want to follow with a good detangling-type of condish after.
