LEAVE IN CONDITIONER...


As salaamu alaikum & Hello ladies,    As some of you may know or at least heard all the rave on kimmay tube's leave- in conditioner.  Ladies, let me just say this is my 3rd time using this mixture aaaaaand I love, love, love it !!!! my hair feels fabulous when I apply this leave -in....it's super, moisturized and soft like no bodies business.  I have read similar reviews and honestly, I have yet to hear one that is negative.  This great little number calls for Aloe Vera JUICE not Aloe Vera gel....Now, I do not know if the gel's results will  be just as moisturizing...but, I can say that they are very similar , I used a aloe Vera  GEL spritz for months  and I did like it, no real complaints there...but, I must say that I do like the juice much , much better for myself the moisture level seems to work better...my hair seems to not feel as stripped.... (if you will.)  This leave-in conditioner is a keeper in my hair care regimen.  Here is what is needed, very easy and simple:

1 oz of your leave- in conditioner of choice ( I use Giovanni direct leave- in )
2  Tablespoons  of Aloe Vera JUICE ( I use Lily of the desert...love this brand)
2  Teaspoons of Castor oil
2  Teaspoons of Jojoba oil

ADD ON OF MY OWN ( not included in kimmay's original recipe)
3-5 drops of rosemary EO ( optional)

Mix...Mix, Mix well....store unused in refrigerator and its said to use within 3 days.

Great , Great leave- in !!!

                                                                                         ENJOY!!!

I use Giovanni Leave in as well and I also put about 4 drops of peppermint oil in mine.It is a great leave in. How often do you use it?

zainab1 said...

@ Tinuke, I always use it on wash day and sometimes every now and then once or twice through out the week.
I totally agree with you...it is really a great leave-in and so light ...add some of the ingredients posted in the post to your giovanni...if you haven't already...see how you like it, I love it ...it really does wonders for my hair and makes my curls pop ! keep me posted if you decide to give it a go. Take care.

I've been using the leave-in with great results also. I have the Knot Today since I went crazy and bought the 32oz refill bottle some time ago (which was just sitting around, lol). I'm glad I get to use it up now.

I love aloe vera gel(I use it daily), it is so great for my hair so I cannot wait to try this type of leave-in conditioner mentioned. I have seen this brand of aloe vera juice in the market's organic section here so I'm on it my very next market day, ya hear?

zainab1 said...

@slipstitches...lol, Insha Allaah
It's really a great recipe...hope you like it....Take care.

FindingMe said...

I use this too!! LOVE IT!!!!!

I thought the original recipe called for two teaspoons of oil, each. I used 2 teaspoons of oil each in mine and I actually found the castor oil to be a bit too much so I am contemplating doing 1.5 teaspoons each of the oil and if that doesn't work, taking it down to 1 teaspoon each of the oils.


Anywhoo, love your blog and we have similiar tastes in products!

@ Finding me... I so love this leave in ...it hasn't let me down yet. And , you know often we may find that we have to alter a recipe to better fit what our hair likes....I always say , listen to the hair ( lol)

Thanks so much for stopping by, it was a pleasure to hear from you ! take care.

Hello Sister! Not only did I install my new shower filter last night, I also whipped up a batch of this bomb leave-in. I have heard so many good things about it I had to try it for myself! I love the addition of rosemary EO, that was an excellent idea. Today is my hair washing day and I can't wait to try it!

zainab1 said...

@Lucky....I can not wait to get me a shower filter...I plan to get one this weekend!

And, yes ...the leave in is the business I use it in my hair and my girls every single wash day. Keep me posted on how you make out.
Take care.
