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

I've recently reading up on the hair product industry. And it's a big fat trap!!! So I did a lil research on what's in the grocery store that does what these huge product lines only claim to do.....

Starting with cleansing & conditioning:

I gotta say I feel enlightened!!! So I got some bentonite clay and acv(I'll try the Amla powder soon). I got some almond butter and some Vatika oil. Next step is pickin up the avocado and coconut milk...... I'm getting the same sensation I get when I create a tasty dish! I'll let you know how it goes.

P.S.- Not yet natural in styling. Miss Jessie's Curly Buttercreme does my hair right like a good man! Gimme time get on y'all level

i agree with you i think thats the reason y i dont really use products..... its not just the hair industry its the beauty industry in particular. think about a massive line: make up, anti aging etc. its all the same, they'll just change one or two ingriedients so that it smells different or that theres a different "working product" in it. then they'll sell it with a "whole new formula" or a "cream" im only young but i stay away from all that stuff, n stick with my good old oils that do the same thing as somthing that you could pay 300 + for.
just my 2 cents.

my hair: 3c, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
my hair loves conditioner only styling!
my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.

I also blog about my hair journey, please feel free to read and comment/ask questions http://www.naturallycurly.com/blogs/...air-blogs/2494
Yes definitely this. I'm still on the search for simple ingredients that preferably I can purchase in the produce section of a grocery store that make my hair just right(:
When I was relaxed, many commercial products worked on my hair. It was magical *_*
So I thought.
I realized that, having product actually sitting on my hair doesn't mean it's moisturizing my hair..
And then, I realized that all the products I had, contained ingredients that were pointless except for preservation of the product and downright negative for the chemistry of my body so.. I had to throw it all out.
So I just know that out there somewhere, there will be something that will give my hair the same effects as some high end conditioner, without being concocted in an Area 51 science lab haha..

The key is to stay away from paraffinum liquidum(mineral oil), petroleum/petrolatum, silicones(anything ending with "cone"), and alcohol(anything ending with "ol").

These companies use the scientific names of the ingredients, counting on our ignorance. It's truly the key to Dr. Miracle's success!

First i suggest you buy and read the Science of Black Hair it is the go to source for healthy hair. I must also comment on the other responses. Find what your hair likes. Don't just do what works well for you. I also noticed that some of your hair products are high in protein. Be careful of protein overload. I also suggest Curly Nikki another natural site that may cater to your needs. GOOD LUCK!!

All alcohol aren't bad and some cones are great. Just do your homework before you make any decisions !!

Ok kids! Did a hair mask of bentonite clay, acv, honey, and vatika oil for 20-30 min. Then did a condition of NuTress protein pak, organic almond butter(the brand I used has it mixed with palm fruit oil), honey, and vatika oil under heating cap. Not sure how long that was tho. I read a few chapters in my Bible.

After rinsing, I put a little vatika oil on my damp hair and put it in 2-strand twists. It's not fully dry yet, but it doesn't feel half bad actually! I think next round will be Amla powder and for conditioning I might do avocado in some coconut milk or yogurt. We'll see.....I'd love to hear about what y'all use...

I'm wearing wigs for the moment. Just until I can get some kinky twists.

somtimes, (like today) if i dont have time or dont feel like it, ill just do the herbal rinse. i think my hair likes it more then the DT

Awesome! Shout out to research(in my Reach Around Radio voice.....what a funny show)

Sent from my SPH-M910 using CurlTalk App
Haha xD! I'll post updates on how moisturizing this is for the hair when I use it, probably next week sometime, and as for the growth, I'll use it rather frequently enough so I'll see if I get any significant growth after about a month.

Hey, kids! Ok so I finally bought some Amla powder(got it on the swap board from peyrhy....I can see myself buying from her again). So it'll be the Amla with some water.

........hit submit too soon......

I made a list of everything the youtube-rs use to make their conditioners. So I'mma make me a lil concoction and see how it goes.

A lot of them like the avocado, coconut milk, honey, olive oil mix.....not sure if that's what I'll do exactly but we'll see...

Maybe banana/honey/olive oil?? I'mma hit the grocery store and get inspired. Anyone do the okra yet? Hit me with the new discoveries, y'all!
