- Table Spoon of Natural Cocoa Butter(I use Yellow Stick), 1/4 cup of Olive Oil, 1/2 cup of Black Tea (Black Tea already made, not the tea bag itself), 2 Tablespoons of Honey, 1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon, and 3 Tablespoons of Lemon Juice.
DirectionsCombine all the ingredients into a bowl and let it set for 30 minutes before putting it in your hair. You must let it set so that the natural peroxide in the cinnamon will be activated. Once you put it in your hair, cover your hair with a shower cap then wrap a towel around your head so the mixture won't drip on you. Let an hour pass then wash out of hair. Shampoo is optional for the hair will not be sticky if washed thoroughly!
Hope this works as good for you as it did for me!! :D
So, after trying out many different recipes this is probably my favorite. I have 3b, low porosity, very thick, armpit length hair. I recently bleached it so I deep consition a lot to keep it from drying out. And my hair looks and feels exactly the same as before I bleached it as I've been diligent in conditioning and keeping it somewhat healthy. With all that said I had to double this recipe as the original recipe was barely enough to coat my ends. Next of all you really need a spray bottle for it as the tea makes this very very very runny. Next time I plan on trying pureed avocado or egg to thicken it and make it a little less messy and add protein. I also used coconut oil as I didn't have cocoa butter (this may be part of my runny issue). You need to use Chamomille tea for lightening if that's your intention, also lemon needs exposure to sunlight in order to lighten as well. I liked how my hair smelled after using this as the honey, cinnamon, and tea smelled terrific. So overall I felt pretty good about this recipe and I personally feel it works the best for MY hair.
