Question Calling all KBB users!... question about hair milk ingredients??

Hi everyone
Ive just recieved a bottle of hair milk that I got in a swap from Lillu (Thanks hun!)

I normally use Unscented The bottle Lillu sent me is Lavender Vanilla, it smells ok a bit strong but overall not too bad
The other differances are that its a totally differant colour to my unscented bottle (lavender vanilla is more of a yellow colour) and it has Annatto seed oil in which the unscented hasn't apart from that and the fragrance oil the ingredients are identical

Does anyone else have Annatto seed oil in their milk?
I'm guessing it is something to do with the fragrance

Thanks!

Hi, I have the white tea fragrance. Ingredients are as follows:

Purified water, jojoba oil, avacado oil, vegetable wax, vitamen E, panthenol, arnica flowers, calendula flowers, echinacea, nettle & horsetail extracts, wheat germ oil, fragrance oil & natural enzymes.

That's it. HTH.

I have lots and have noticed different colors. Cham/sage is yellow. Pom/guava is pink. I think lav/vanilla is the strongest scent I ever got. It was a little too strong for me.

Yeah it is a little bit strong, I'm going to use it as her rinse out and unscented as a leave in.... I may dilute it with the unscented as Ive got 2 large bottles on order from KBB!!!

I use annatto oil as a natural colorant in some of the soaps I make. It makes things orange to red - depending on how strong I make the infusion and what else is in the soap.

Its also used as a colorant for food, I have seen it listed in recipes and think its used to by some companies to make cheddar cheese orange.

I can usually find the seeds at the grocery store, in the Mexican food section.

Not sure if it has any properties other than adding color.

I have the lavender vanilla, and I agree - it's pretty strong. I use it as my rinse-out and then use the nectar (in pomegranate guava) as a leave-in. By the time it's dry I can't really smell the lavender vanilla.

Glad you have finally found something that works! Is her hair knotty anymore or has KBB taken care of that? Sorry the AO didnt work, but hopefully the next person will appreciate it! Im assuming KBB stands for Karen's Body Beautiful? What is this stuff like? I may put expensive curly products on my xmas list hehehe!

Is the Vegetable Wax in the KBB milk CG? Can it be removed with just cowashes and ACV?

I don't think it's built up on anyone yet. There was a question about this somewhere in the original ginormous thread in the product review section.

The vegetable waxes are just to emulsify the oils and water. It should not build up at all.

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.
