Understanding the rationale behind mixing conditioners

  • Applied Ouidad’s Salon Series OMEGA-3 Replenishing Hair Treatment to my hair. It contains a lipid called 18-MEA. Wore my heating cap for 30 minutes while I played with my phone. 😛
  • Applied Strong Roots Pimento oil to my scalp.
  • I mixed some warmed coconut oil with alma and brahmi powders. I was surprised that the powders actually mixed quite well with the oil. I was expecting it to be more seedy but I think it’s better than when I mix with water alone. Allowed the oil-powder mix cool a little. Added some full cream plain yoghurt to this mixture, whisked and then applied to my hair. This mix had the consistency of a really thick conditioner and wasn’t runny. Wore my heating cap for about 30 minutes. While I was mixing my amla and brahmi powders, I was thinking to myself that someone out there could just blending sand and calling them ayurvedic powders. LOL. Yoghurt is a protein and this conditioner mix leaves the hair feeling strong but nice.

  • Washed my hair with my cleansing conditioner mix (conditioner + shampoo + tea). I felt that my hair needed some clarifying so I used a regular Pantene shampoo. It lathered very well in spite of the additional conditioner. After rinsing out the shampoo, I applied some more conditioner to make the hair soft and rinsed it out after 3 minutes.
  • Applied Tropic Isle Living Hair Therapy Oil to my scalp after rinsing out my hair.
  • Mixed together Hairveda Sitrinillah deep conditioner Mill Creek Botanicals Henna conditioner, Mill Creek Botanicals Biotin conditioner + Franck Provost repair conditioner + aloe vera juice concentrate + essential oils {of oregano, peppermint, cedarwood, thyme, rosemary, lavender} + rice bran oil + hempseed oil + avocado oil + olive oil + coconut oil. Whisked them altogether to make a smooth mixture. Applied to my hair. Covered my hair with a 2 plastic bags. Wore my heating cap. Put on my satin bonnet. Covered my pillow with a towel. Went to bed. Took off the heating cap in the middle of the night. In the morning, my towel was a bit damp but nothing too bad.
  • Rinsed off the conditioner while taking my shower in the morning.
  • Squeezed out the excess water from my hair. Applied some argan oil to seal in the moisture. My leave-in was Pura body naturals Sapote hair lotion.
  • Blow dried my hair with moderate heat using a brush-tension method. I first saw the video on Today’s Naira blog. I used moderate heat to dry each section a little and finished up with cool air. There was a little breakage and shedding but by the time I was done picking up all the hair, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was.  I oiled my scalp with Lavender Jamaican black castor oil.

  • All in all, I like the technique. It left my soft and smooth but it takes me a long time to finish. I think I still prefer the way my hair feels when I do a braid out. As much as I like it, I’ll not be doing this every week. I also spent more time drying each section so it was not as puffy as last week. I think the Pura body naturals Sapote hair lotion might have been a better choice than the Hairveda Red Satin moisturizer I used last week.
