Honey Deep Conditioner
It sounds sticky but surprisingly it wasn't.

-I started with 4tbs of honey then I heated on the stove top, but i guess you could put it in the microwave to get the same liquifying effect.
-Then added 2tbs mayonnaise to the honey, mix well.
-Finally add a few drops of the oil(s) of your choice, i used coconut.
-After applying i put on a tight plastic cap and left it in for 45 mins.
-I rinsed and air dried, left with soft shiny, almost frizz free hair. Both the textures of my hair felt great, the curly and the straight.
If anyone tries this let me know how it worked for you !

This wknd I did two treatments:

1) Bentonite clay w/acv and vatika oil
2) Smoothie (1 banana, 1 avocado, eyeballed a couples tbsp both honey and EVOO, and a splash of coconut milk)

This really softened my hair. It also loosened my super tight type 4 curls. I definitely do this again!

Default Tinkering with FSG

I made my third batch of FSG on Sunday with better results than the first two: first went straight into the trash, so thick it wouldn't strain; second was still so thick that it wouldn't spread and most of it ended up on the shower floor. This batch worked better after I adjusted the quantities of water and seeds.

I divided it into two bottles and added a little bit of agave nectar and EVOO to one, and a pinch of mag sulfate to the other. I tired the agave/evoo version today and was thrilled with the results! Nice curls, decent clumping and not-hideous bangs. And then...I stepped out my front door into 85 degrees and 74% humidity. I had an instant frizzball of drooping curls. Did not realize that agave and honey are humectants. Oh well, trial and error, I suppose. Looking forward to trying the mag sulfate version tomorrow.

Made my own facial cleanser, yay! I had some Aura Cacia Grapeseed Oil lying around which I feared was going to sit around collecting dust because I had no use for it, but no longer. Same with the raw honey I had. This left my face cleansed, moisturized, toned, and hopefully will help with acne!

1 part Grapeseed Oil - I say part because the Aura Cacia packaging is just terrible and will only let you squirt out a certain amount at a time, but it has proven to be perfect for this recipe.

2 parts raw honey - unpasteurized and no preservatives

a few drops of Tea Tree Oil

Mix this together in the palm of your hand and using the other hand spread gently over your face. Leave this on your face for 5 to 10 minutes, then wash off with lukewarm water. Pat your face dry gently.

I can't stress enough how PERFECT this made my skin feel. I did not get oily at all during the day, and my skin didn't dry out. It feels healthy, soft, and naturally moisturized. The tea tree oil is added for my acne, if you don't suffer from it feel free to switch it out for whatever oil you'd like. The grapeseed oil tones and cleanses and moisturizes, the honey does the same.

How did you rinse? Water, CO, low-poo?

Over the weekend I made black castor oil using the recipe formulated by youtuber OhValerieMonCherie. I doubled it and added orange oil for a better aroma. The smell isn't as bad as I was expecting. The orange oil cut the smell a tad so when I smell it, I'm not thinkin' "Whoa! That stinks!" I feel the tingle after putting on the plastic. I've realized that the oily feel of a natural oil on your hair is very different from that of a mineral oil or petroleum based grease. When I touch my hair, I'm not afraid to touch something else afterward.

I made gel dye! Mix my favorite gel with unsweetened kool aid, and apply gel as usual. It worked! Though I couldn't see much on my dark hair. Next time I'm going to add a white powder to make it opaque. And it washed right out with my next conditioner wash.

I wanted to make a gel, but couldn't get to the store. I had ground flax seed in the house, but it was pretty impossible to get the ground seed out of the gel. I had frozen okra, but for whatever reason it didn't make a very thick slime. Then I found tapioca powder. Couldn't find a recipe for it, so I made one up.

1 cup water
1 Tbsp tapioca powder

Mix together and put over high heat. Wisk continuously until the solution turns clear. Let cool.

This defined my curls wonderfully! But it also dropped tons of little white flakes when I SOTC. It's promising though and very easy, so more experimentation is in order!

I'm new to this site...and loving it!..and I'm new to the whole homemade hair regimens. My first crack at it I simply used mayo mixed with almond extract to get rid of the mayo smell. Did a rinse and followed up with olive oil/egg wash. The protein was great and my hair felt so much better after. Also, my stubborn curls started to revive!

Does anyone have any simple homemade recipes that help revive flat curls? Usually a 3A, high porosity. Now a mix between 2A-3A depending on which part of my head you're looking at.

You might be over conditioned. You might try just a lo-poo (I'm partial to SheaM Moisture Retention shampoo for this) and skip the conditioner for a few days.

Not a hair recipe but dayum... nice! I've used SheaM smoothie in a pinch for lotion when I'm out & about but it's a bit strong in the fragrance for my skin by itself.

I have Suave cocoa/shea butter and aloe/cucumber lotions, one at work and the other at home. I've been mixing one pump of a Suave lotion with a squeeze about (half as much) of the smoothie and using the mixture as lotion.

When I applied this to wet hair before getting out of the shower, it worked great! Good hold and no flaking!

My my first shea butter mixture/mango butter:

I used....
Mango butter, shea butter, coconut oil, sweet almond oil, castor oil, golden jojojoba oil, olive oil, honey, tea tree oil and a little bit of rose water.

I used the whip-freeze-whip method and it came out smooth, creamy (a little sticky) and VERY moisturizing. I love it, except I wish it weren't so sticky :/

Putting it down here to keep track:

straight CFW = too dry

3 parts CFW to 1 part veg glycerin = slightly dry

2 parts CFW to 1 part veg glycerin = ?? today's recipe

Ok.....this will be the last one for the week... this thread may tire of me LoL

I made a face mask w/ bentonite clay. Instead of water I used egg white that had been beaten in a blender to loosen the consistency. Then I added tea tree oil, honey, and the clay.

Why egg white??? A friend of mine has a brother who told her that it draws out the black heads on the nose.
