Wash Day With Coconut Cream Deep Conditioner
Ok, I know this update is late but I still want to fulfill my promise of showing you my results from using the coconut deep conditioner. Alright, let’s get to business!
- I used banana and the coconut cream I got as a Christmas gift last year-I didn’t want it to go waste since it’s been almost seen a year on the shelf. I checked the expiring date to be sure I was using a good stuff.
- I measured about half cup of the milk into a blender
- I sliced 3 small bananas into the milk
- Blended till I had a smooth texture
- I divided it the mixture into two so I could preserve any left over.
- Shampooed the hair with BO-16 shampoo to rid the hair of build up from the oils used in the week for the greenhouse effect
- Did a tea rinse for 3 minutes
- T-shirt dried it for about 10 minutes in order to have only damp but not wet hair
- Sectioned the hair into four
- Applied the mixture section by section
- Covered with shopping back, shower cap and beanie for about 1 hour
- As I rinsed the hair, I realized the hair was a bit hard and had clumped up. Of course, that could be sorted out with Queen Helene Cholesterol as moisturizing deep conditioner for 1 hour.
- I, then, decided to give a new deep conditioning technique a try. I added my oils-sunflower, coconut, castor oil as well as sheabutter to the QH and heated it up for 20 seconds in a microwave. I applied the warm mixture to the hair and covered using my shopping bag, shower cap and beanie.
- Rinsed the QH out and added leave-in. At this point, I had visitors and didn’t want to go about with wet hair so I blow dried on medium setting till the hair was about 70% dry. I usually blow dry from only the front but that leaves the back still damp so I blow dried from the back too.
I must confess that I absolutely loved the results. For once, I didn't have the dry effect from the blow dryer and the softness was adorable!!! I have some left over I'll be using when am out of my cornrows.
