Ok so here is where my jouney began. After looking up plenty of suggestions and hair treatments on the blogs I decided to play around with some things that I already had (just wasnt using for my hair) and came out with some really good results. Generally I'd spend about 50.00 just on hair products alone after getting a perm so these homemade remedies will come in so handy (and pretty cheap too: Total of about 30 bucks).
For a moisturizer I mixed:
1/2 cococnut oil, 1/2 cholestorel with 6 drops of avocado oil.
For a Deep Conditioner:
I used the same mixed with 3 tbls of Shea butter and left on for an hour...30 min spent under the hood dryer with a plastic bag....
My hair ended up very SOFT and more manageable....I can see some curls starting to develope but it's still too short!!! :)
