Hey there Fabulous Fellow Naturals!

I hope everyone is doing well since my last visit here. Today I bring a serious "DIY" combo. I've been using this combo for sometime now, After reading a post from the fabulous Chocolate Orchid which you can Find here  be sure to check her out :0). Where she shared a DIY she came up with and how pleased she was with her results.  So I thought great idea Why not share my latest  DIYcombo that I adore with my  AuNaturale readers.

After using my kiss my face upper management gel ( which I do love) but the problem with that gel was I wasn't getting 2nd or 3rd day hair.  I heard many great things about Eco styler gel "pink" so I went ahead and gave it a go ( not to mention It's super cheap and I can get it here on the ground).  One problem with this gel is that the ingredients are not natural , where as the ingredients in the Upper management were waaay better.  So here is where my experimenting with added ingredients came into play. I thought to myself  I will add a few of my favorite products to the gel in hopes of making it better and healthier for my hair.

Ladies, I am soooooo glad I did, I haven't looked back since...seriously.  I have honestly found my staple gel with no desire to look any further for another. So Here is what I add to my Eco styler 'pink"

1 oz of gel ( depending on how large of a batch you will be making)
2 Tablespoons of Aloe juice
2 teaspoons of jojoba oil
2 teaspoons of Castor oil
2-3 drops of peppermint EO (or EO of choice)

 Remember , You can modify this to your liking . This one works WONDERS for my curls. This  holds my curls for 2-3 days, if not more. Gives me shiny curls , well defined, great clumping, my hair has yet to feel dry or brittle after using this combo. Everything that I love and look for in a gel this has once I add my added ingredients.

If you look closely , some of you may notice its very similar to the leave- in mixture that Kim on YouTube uses. At one time I used her combo but with conditioner instead of gel and had great results ( I have since moved on from this conditioner recipe I've found a leave-in conditioner from Qhemet Biologics That I love even more ). Since I loved this combo with the conditioner I thought I would love it just as well but with gel.  And boy was I right...I plan to look no further!

So how About you ladies...Any fabulous "DIY's" lately? If so, do share

Thanks for stopping by ladies, and remember to stay....Naturally Fabulous!

Thanks a bunch for sharing! Gotta get me some more aloe vera juice. I believe that's the moisture kick that my mix needs to take it over the top.

Hmmmmm. Sounds nice
I have been looking for the perfect gel for my flat twists. I tried the homemade flax seeds gel but did not like the result. I like the fact that you added aloe juice. Great! Thanks for sharing!
