I'm hoping that some of you lovely folks can help me...
I'm a type 3b, currently sporting a just-above-shoulder-length cut.
I have been struggling to find a good natural hair care routine for myself that's easy on the wallet, but find myself limited on things I can use.
I'm allergic to coconut and almond oils and have terrible reactions to chemicals :confused1: (for this reason, I avoid anything with a bajillion ingredients, so to speak).
Currently, my routine consists of washing once a week with Soap Nuts shampoo and conditioning with a small bit of shea butter and argan oil. Between washings, I use rose water to freshen up my hair (it's wonderful!).
Unfortunately, I still have some issues with frizz and volume. I was considering adding olive oil into my conditioning routine and using home-made flaxseed gel for styling.
Any advice or suggestions? My goal is to mix all of my own products.
I'm looking for some styling advice as well. :)
I've had the same hairstyle for the past few years and *really* want to change it up. My hair is pretty much one length, with slight layering. I dislike having my hair get in my face, so I always put the front section up in a clip.
Sorry for the novel!
sounds like you need a nice simple routine. i just use conditioner and oil as styling. do/can you use any oils? im in germany and have trouble as well to find products that are cheap and good and natural! feel like im going in circles sometimes! :goofy:
I have recently discovered that my hair likes argan oil...but in small quantities. I had been trying shea butter before that, which wasn't as effective in battling the frizz (and it made my curls kind of stringy...ick!).
What oil/conditioner do you use?
I can definitely empathize on the feeling of going in circles! Living in Alaska = ordering lots of supplies online :roll:
i use a hand made conditioner that i got at like a market and oil, coconut, argan mac nut or aprecot oil does it for me.
