etae carmel treatment

Okay this is going to sound weird, but does anyone else find the smell of the carmel treatment disturbing? Anytime I smell it I want to gag....Anyone else?
I just ordered it online and I haven't gotten it yet. I tried making the mixed by scratch and it smelled awful and burned my scalp. Does the e'tae actually work though? Does it make your hair softer?
Can someone post the ingredients for the Carmel treatment by Etae please. Also how do you use it? Is it a prepoo of some sort? I am currently using Ojon as a prepoo but am curious to learn about this product as well.

Thanks!

It wouldn't be right if I didn't warn you though, you HAVE to put the ingredients in a blender. If you don't you will have chunks of banana in your hair that WILL NOT come out. I should know, it happened to me, lol! Heck, I don't even think I would make the homemade recipie again, but people who put it in a blender don't seem to complain about it so...
I agree!! I absolutely HATE bananas, so the whole time I did want to gag at the smell. It makes your hair SUPER soft though...BE CAREFUL the banana is hard to get out for me because i made an at home version and didn't have a food processor.

I didn't realize it was still in there until I was already blow-drying my hair...

i heart naturally curly hair!
I might try to mix up a batch of this weekend, but I have a few questions. Do you put it in your hair wet or dry? How long should I leave it in?

You can find the ingredients for the Carmel treatment at www.etaeproducts.com. I absolutely love this product. Yes it does make your hair very soft!!! The smell is a little weird but I am able to get over it because of how soft my hair feels afterward. It is applied to dry hair and then should be washed out using a sulfate free shampoo. (Creme of Nature is good)

That being said - I didn't really mind the smell of the treatment. I smelled more of the molasses than I did the bananas. It didn't smell good by any stretch of the imagination, but it wasn't horrible.

There wasn't a noticeable difference to me after applying the carmel treatment. My hair looked the same as it had before. Not really shinier, not really softer. The treatment may be one of those cumulative things like henna so it may help if you do it more than once. I only tried it one time and the sticky mess that it made wasn't worth it to me. (my hair can be considered 3c as far as curl size, but it can be pretty coarse and undefined in some sections).

It may work for you if you don't mind the smell...
mostly coarse texture, normal porosity... I think?

So, I my pj got the best of me and I bought it. I haven't used it yet but I'm already impressed. Not only did she send the product but she sent some cotton to wrap around my head, a baggie, and some gloves. That's probably not a big deal for most but I have the hardest time finding baggies to fit my head.
if luvin KCKT and KCCC is wrong I don't wanna b right

sell crazy somewhere else...we're all stocked up here.
I finally got my order of E'TAE caramel treatment. First, it doesn't smell nearly as bad as the home made version (not to me at least) and isn't nearly as drippy. As for results, well, my hair was shiny , but since I bought it to soften my new growth (transitioning since March of this year) I was not really impressed. Also, the bottle isn't all that big and I used up 3/4 of it for one treatment (my hair is only shoulder length). So, would I use it again? Only if I made it myself. I would I make it myself? Why bother! lol
you gotta think the carmel probably has a weird smell because its 100% natural. but i definately wouldnt recommend trying to duplicate the etae way. even if you got the ingredients how would you know what the measurements are. i would be scared that too much of one ingredient would do something bad to my hair.
the smell didn't bother me. I got three treatments out of the bottle I had. I didn't notice my hair being particularly softer after the treatments, but to this day I can't seem to hold a curl when I straighten.
