My Version of the KimmayTube Leave-In Conditioner Recipe

Hello readers,

Well as promised I am showing you my mixture of one of the most popular recipe's in the natural hair community, which would be KimmayTube's leave-in conditioner recipe.  This was actually my first time making the leave-in conditioner and while I did not use the exact products that she used in her You Tube video (such as the Kinky Curly Knot Today Leave-In Conditioner), they were close enough, plus I added my own twist to it.

I used 2 tablespoons (1 oz.) of Beyond the Zone Split Mender Leave-in conditioner, 2 tablespoons (1 oz.) of Whole Leaf Aloe Vera Juice, 2 teaspoons each of Lavender Jamaican Black Castor Oil and Jojoba Oil with 1/2 teaspoon of Vitamin e oil for preservation.  You will see me mixing up these items together in the video below and you will see how I accidentally spilled some extra  Aloe Vera juice in which may account for why my mixture came out so watery.


The purpose of this leave-in conditioner is to give hair a proper pH balance so that your hair can also be moisturized at the same time.  A proper pH balanced product can instantly seal the cuticle of the hair shaft and should leave the hair feeling soft.  I put the mix into the refrigerator and the leave-in conditioner did thicken up a bit and had a better consistency after about 4 days.   I did end up trying my leave-in conditioner on a section of my hair and I immediately felt the difference in the way it felt and this mixture gave my hair a lot of slip.  I would definitely recommend trying Kimmaytube's leave-in conditioner recipe because it can be cheaper than purchasing a commercial leave-in conditioner, and I will alternate between this and Beauty Without Cruelty Leave-in Conditioner which is organic and really good in my opinion.

Let me know if you decided to try this recipe and how it worked for you.  I am seriously considering purchasing the new One n Only Flat Iron that has Argan Oil infused into the ceramic plates and if I do I will definitely be doing a review on it.   
Update: I purchased a Helen of Troy Ceramic+Titanium Professional Flat Iron on 11/22/10 and I will be testing it out very soon.
