kimmaytube_leave-in

UPDATE: I NO LONGER USE THE PROTECTIVE MIST BODIFIER SINCE THE FORMULA HAS CHANGED AND NO LONGER WORKS TO MOISTURIZE MY HAIR.

I LOVE Taliah Waajid’s Protective Mist Bodifier. No I am not being compensated in anyway to say so πŸ™‚

After finally testing out KimmayTube’s leave-in a few weeks ago, I had the bright idea to try it using the Protective Mist Bodifier, instead of the Knot Today. After all, Knot Today detangles my hair well, but the Protective Mist Bodifier really MOISTURIZES! Also, if you are using henna like I am (every 2-3 weeks), this is definitely worth a try in combating the dryness that occurs post henna treatments. This stuff is the bomb diggity! Hats off to KimmayTube for inspiring me to try this mixture.

I might try your proportion because im not sure my hair really like aloe vera juice. My plain leave-in tend to moisturize better than the mixture. But I have the juice so I want to use it up.

I just purchased this product today at Target based on your review over at LHCF! I'm going to try this recipe on my next wash day. What is the PH of your mixture?

Is there another oil that I can substitute for castor oil? I don't think my hair/scalp likes castor oil. I've tried the mixture once before and my scalp itched the entire night. I've since figured out that the castor oil is the culprit.

@Novermberlady13 – I think my hair may not like aloe vera juice as well. But it does ok with this recipe.

@Ari – I have no clue what the PH is lol. I haven't purchased any strips and honestly, I have a difficult time reading the colors when I see them on youtube videos. lol I'm a little slow sometimes. I pretty much base everything on how my hair reacts.

@MsKrys – I've done a little research and there really is no substitute of castor oil. If your hair responds well to coconut oil, I would try that and being that coconut oil is one of the only few oils that can penetrate enough to moisturize, you might be in for an UBER moisturizing leave in conditioner.

is your concoction as greasy as the KT concoction? I stopped using her recipe because it was too oily/greasy…i amended the oil ratio and just didnt like the results….I now use Koils by Nature and the pH seems right for my hair…my ends lay down and are not bushy…thanks for the blog

It actually is quite oily, but I don’t use this concoction anymore πŸ™‚ I actually stick to ready made leave-ins. I’ve reviewed a a couple on here.
