Besides the glycerin she also added a little olive oil into the mix and I was also reading a few of the comments and there were mentions of some adding castor oil to conditioner. I never thought to try any of this. I pretty much eyeballed and did what i felt like her hair needed a lot of so I don't have exact measurements . My advice is to just go by what your hair (or your child's) needs. The items I used : organix coconut milk conditioner, glycerin, castor oil, vitamin e oil and olive oil.
As you can see the olive oil is already in the container. Its only a little bit since that was all I had left. I then added all the other ingredients.
I realized I added too much oil but I found a way to fix everything and make it work. Here is what the final mixture looks like.
I first tried it on my hair because I'm scared of ruining hers. I know our hair isn't the complete opposite but I would rather sacrifice my already damaged hair. I did a little test on my ends and it left it really stringy and dry. I didn't leave it in for a couple minutes though. Anything having to do with my hair is a fail so I didn't even bother. I tried again using it with another conditioner and nothing happened. I was afraid I wasted all the products. Then, when I was taking out one of her styles I decided to use the mix with water and.......it worked great! I loved it. I never use one product alone of course though so I'm not sure of this also has anything to do with it.
When taking down her style I sprayed with the mix and added some shea moisture curl and style milk then I would seal with a generous amount of coconut oil. On her her hairline and nape of the neck I use our shea mix to moistuize. And this is what we got.
So far, I like it and it works for us. Another way I achieved this look (after a style takedown) is by spraying with any conditioner and water and then applying all the same products after that I mentioned above. I will keep up with this and update to let you know of this is indeed the answer. Have you used a mix like this? What other mixes do you or have you used with these ingredients? What is your experience?
