Remember how I have mentioned in a previous post that I hate how Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioner sits on my hair. Well, I found a way to modify the product so that it will penetrate into my hair strands.... and I am LOVING it!! Before I go one, if you do not use silicones (cones), please be adviced that this product contains silicones. I actually bought this product before I knew about silicones and how it can cause build up on the hair shaft.
If you decide to try this product and see that it "sits" on top of your hair instead of penetrating it, you can try my new mixture.
You will need
2 tablespoons of Cantu Shea Butter
2 tablespoons of Aloe Vera Juice
2 teaspoons of Jojoba Oil
2 teaspoons of Castor Oil (I used Jamaican Black Castor Oil)
Mix together in a small container.
Remember to always check the pH level of products when you decide to mix. I tested the mixture above and it has a pH level of 4, which is good (similar to hair sebum (4.5-5.5)
To preserve my leave-in, if I have any left over, I store it in the refridgerator. Remember to label it. ;)
