I think I'll give the All-Natural thing a whirl........

I mix with acv and vatika oil(cuts the acv smell). Don't make it with too much bentonite. You don't want it clumpy, which makes for a difficult rinse out. Apply to root and work your way out. Always use a plastic cap.

Thanks! I'll do this next wash day. Do you think the oil helps as well, or is it mainly for the smell?

My hair is quite happy. Used amla powder with water instead of shampoo and I like... the bentonite mask really helped to loosen my curl a bit(I have tightest type 4 curl ever!).

Now the smoothie.......you're not gonna believe this, but I used the entire batch!
I used 1 whole banana, 1 whole avocado, a couple tbsp honey, a couple tbsp EVOO, and a splash of coconut milk. EXCELLENT!!!!!!

WARNING: Please use a blender or food processor. I did not heed the youtubers' warning and wound up with banana bits in my hair. It was easily remedied with an extra rinse and thorough comb out, but I implore you, DON'T DO THIS TO YOURSELF!!!!

Other than that, AWESOME!

Any tips on making sure the bentonite gets all the gunk off the scalp AND rinses completely?

My hair prefers a mostly natural regimen. I prepoo with EVOO, shampoo usually with Shikakai bar. (alternate sometimes with TJ Tea tree tingle shampoo). I always make my own dc of banana, honey and oil because my hair loves it and no other dc ever worked as well. I use TN, Y2C or TJ Nourish and Spa to rinse out the dc and use of the three mixed with aVJ for my leavein. I also cowash with these. I henna for color.

When I dont stick to all natural it is usually a styler. Although a lot of times I use just conditioner and oil to style or end up making if there is a lot of humidity.
I'm about to do another experiment, kids. I'mma make black castor oil using a recipe from youtuber OhValerieMonCherie. My garlic seed and onion seed oils come in this week and all the other ingredients were purchased over the wknd. So we'll see how much growth I get...

I may try to make the garlic seed and onion seed oils myself next time (check out youtubers rainbowlady36 and rickvanman for DIY allium cepa/allium sativum).

UPDATE......

My hair always itches. It's been that way for quite some time. But the black castor oil, while it offers a tingle that I like, it also causes a more extreme itch. So I now only use it in my condish mixes.

Instead, I take 4-4.5 oz. Of castor oil and add to it a couple of drops of each of the following EOs:

1. Tea tree
2. Sage
3. Rosemary
4. Neem
5. Peppermint

This offers an even better tingle without maximizing the itch. YAY!

AND...

2day I made a different condish mix than I normally make....

Egg yolks
Coconut milk
Coconut oil
Shea oil
Vitamin E oil
AVJ
Honey
Allium sativum
Allium cepa
Black castor oil
Amla powder
Orange oil (for fragrance)

......about to apply now...

Has anyone ever used black soap for their hair...just curious? I read the ingredients and it is all natural. I think I will try this next wash day and let you guys know how it works out.
I have a cleansing mix that has black and castille soaps along with a few oils.

How well would you say this works for your hair and can you list the receipe please?
I like it very much. It's a thorough cleanser without my hair feeling stripped. Which is really all a shampoo needs to be in my opinion. Mine is in an 8 oz. Bottle.

It's about 1/3 black soap and 2/3 castille soap, a few drops of tea tree oil, then I eyeball a couple tbsp of coconut, grapeseed, and sweet almond oils. Shake well before each use.

I found myself without an avocado or banana one day so I thought fast and came up with a different condish mix. Sorry kids, I don't really measure.

1 Egg (can be omitted if protein sensitive; or just yolks)
Honey
Homemade black castor oil
EVOO
EVCO
Grapeseed oil
Sweet almond oil
Neem oil
Tea tree oil
Rosemary oil
Sage oil
Peppermint oil
Orange oil
Allium sativum
Allium cepa
ACV
AVJ
Coconut milk
Bentonite clay
Amla powder

Some may say there are too many ingredients. I'm the type who wants what I put in my hair or on my skin to be a "mack." So lemme just put all this good stuff in the bowl and REALLY get right. And it's RIGHT!
