How 's the weekend going? Hope all is well! Yesterday I decided to put one of the unusual hair remedies I talked about in this post to the test.
I decided to do a deep conditioning treatment with some palm oil which I warmed in a little pot;
I decided to add some other hair oils to make the mix even more potent. I added some olive oil;
Grape seed oil;
Black Castor oil;
And few drops of argan oil;
Then I added some Honey;
After mixing the potent oil mix, I had to think of a way to apply the mix without ruining my clothes. So I decided to grab a big piece of cotton wool;
Then dipped it into the oil and applied it to the roots of my hair in sections, massaging the oil mix as I went along.
For my ends I applied some hair conditioner and massaged the ends and the roots together so the oil could reach my ends also.
Covered my hair up in a shower cap for about an hour and washed it out in cool water and in the sink not the shower, wasn't about to have my body greasy from palm oil!! I was worried about the smell of the oil lingering but surprisingly after using enough of my herbal essence long term relationship conditioner the sweet smell overpowered the smell of the palm oil.
Now to the verdict; My hair feels GREAT!! As usual I am being honest! The palm oil most definitely conditioned my roots, they feel softer and so you know how much I loved this treatment, I took a picture of the hairs I shed when I combed through;
As you can see I must have shed about 7 hairs only! I stored the rest of the left over oil in a bottle, shall keep doing palm oil treatments especially when my new growth comes in! My hair is presently 7weeks post relaxer and I need all the conditioning I can get to keep my hair manageable till my next relaxer treatment.
When my hair was towel dried, moisturized and sealed, I decided to braid the ends in two pigtails which I wore out all day :) Shout out to a reader of this blog DAMI!! Met her at the WED EXPO fair and she called out, 'Naija Hair can grow'!! I was sooo thrilled, we had a quick chat about...hair of course!!It was lovely meeting you Dami!!
Did any of you try any weekend treats?! Who is gonna join me and try some palm oil on their hair? Say I :)
