ALOE VERA WHOLE LEAF GEL BY " LILY OF THE VALLEY"...




As salaamu alaikum & Hello ladies,

Lately I have been using my Aloe vera whole leaf gel and let me tell you I love, love, love this stuff.  It provides mega moisture, I mean was hair was soooo soft.  It doesn't leave my hair with a hard , crunchy feeling at all.  However, this is not a gel to be used every day, I found that it will leave build up if used daily.
I only use it on my wash day or days ( depending on what my hair is telling me, but normal just wash day without the S , LOL). 

Here is what I do :

FIRST

I co- wash with either my Suave Humectant Conditioner, or a mixture of Suave naturals " Tropical Coconut" & VO5 moisture milks.  Or depending on my hair needs I will use my Dr. Bronner's " PEPPERMINT PURE CASTILE SOAP".  I looooove this stuff ( I will share more on that in my next post or two) , but I have nothing but love for that product.  Moving on...

SECOND

I will do a Avocado hair smoothie treatment  here is what I do:

1.  I cut open 1 Avocado & scoop out all of the insides.
2.  Add 3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil,  (or oil of your choice)
3.  Add 1/4 cup of water ( or more if needed)
4.  Blend in a blender, and I mean blend well.
5.  Apply to your hair, cover with a plastic bag.
6.  Leave on for a least 1 hr.
7.  Then I rinse well.
BE SURE TO USE A VERY OLD TOWEL, AVOCADO MAY STAIN.

NEXT

 I apply Olive Oil, Vitamin E Oil, Coconut Oil, JoJoba Oil, castor oil  or any oil of your choice.  Sometimes I mix these oils , or just use one. 

1.  Apply  a couple of spoonfuls of these oils to your scalp.  Message into scalp really good, spread oils onto hair .  Put on a plastic cap and leave on for 30 mintues.
2.  Wash or co wash with warm water, turning water to cold making sure to seal in that much needed moisture.  I do this every week.

THEN

I apply my lovely leave in conditioner ( talked about that in my last post).

Finally

I  apply mt whole leaf Aloe vera Gel.  Making this like a spritz into a spray bottle, I add:

1.  A bit of the Aloe Vera Gel
2. 10 drops of lavender Essential oils ( or oil of choice)
3.  A tablespoon or two of Olive Oil.  
4.  Shake it well, Apply  and Style .
BE SURE TO KEEP THIS GEL IN THE REFRIGERATOR

So, I would have to say this product is a keeper, it works really well for my hair.  Especially, when my hair needs that xtra bit of moisture! Great product for hair.

                                                                                                        ENJOY!!!
