This is a great DIY Intensive Conditioning Treatment for Black, Afro/Caribbean Hair

Again, I was browsing the internet and thought of you ladies. I read this and wanted to share with you what looks like a great DIY intensive conditioning treatment for our afro hair.



Black Afro/Caribbean hair is the most vulnerable to damage and breakage out of any hair texture due to its unique structure and configuration. This means it needs specialized products that provide extra hydration and protection in order to look, feel and be at its best. We suggest that those with Afro textured hair use a weekly pre-shampoo deeply intensive conditioning treatment. Philip Kingsley makes a multi-award winning treatment called Elasticizer Extreme, but if you wish to make your own hydrating treatment for extremely porous, tight curls at home, whisk together the following:

2 eggs
2oz double cream
1oz castor oil
1oz melted butter
1oz purified water
Juice of half a grapefruit

Refrigerate overnight if necessary and use as needed.
Apply the mixture to the whole length of your hair in sections. Work into your hair with fingers and massage your scalp for five-ten minutes with a gentle kneading motion. Leave in for twenty minutes (or overnight) and shampoo and condition as usual. Do this as often as possible until your hair is sufficiently improved.
