One of the things we go through the fastest in the natural hair community is CONDITIONER! Hands down! An 8oz bottle doesn’t last a very long time, at least not for me. If you’re a Youtube junkie then you most likely have come across the KimmayTube’s recipe for a pH-balanced Leave-In conditioner. Everyone brags on this recipe.
This has become my go-to leave-in conditioner for my hair. I like it because 1/ it has so many good stuff in it that will benefit my hair and 2/ it STRETCHES my regular leave-in conditioner.
The original recipe uses:
- 2 Tbsp Leave-In Conditioner
- 2 Tbsp Aloe Vera Juice
- 2 Tsp Jojoba Oil
- 2 Tsp Castor Oil
Add all ingredients to a small bowl/container and mix until well blended.
The original leave-in conditioner for this recipe is the Kinky Curly Knot Today. However, any leave-in conditioner can be used. I use the Giovanni Direct Leave-In Conditioner.
If you want to do a bigger batch you can use the following:
- 5 Tbsp conditioner
- 5 Tbsp of aloe vera juice
- 1 Tbsp Jojoba Oil
- 1 Tbsp Castor Oil
Here is a good video showing how to make this mix as well as testing the pH balance of the mixture. This Youtuber used both the Kinky Curly Knot Today as well as the Giovanni Leave-In conditioners.
If you are wondering what is pH-balance and why it is important when it comes to hair care, take a listen to this short informative clip.
I do recommend that you try this on your hair as it is awesome; not to mention (again) that it prolongs the life of your conditioner!
Happy hair day curlies xo
