Concoctions

I am a bit of a D.I.Y.  person so I get a kick out of creating something most especially for my hair or anything for that matter. To make things better I am leaving my list of products here.


First off I will give you my list of products that I keep handy for any of my creations

My oils:

  •  olive oil
  • grapeseed oil(holy grail)
  • coconut oil
  • castor oil
  • jojoba oil
  • eucalyptus eo
  • lemon eo
  • tea tree eo
  • lavender eo
  • rosemary eo
  • pepper eo

I changed up my daily spritz formula and have been using this one which has aided in the thickness of my hair a lot:

  • pre-boiled water half
  • aloe vera juice half
  • 2 tablespoons castor oil
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • 5 drops eucalyptus oil
  • 5 drops lavender oil
  • 5 drops rosemary oil
  • teaspoon glycerine(new addition)
I find it easier to apply castor oil and essential oils to my hair in this way, as it keeps them light especially castor oil because it is a thick oil. I shake the bottle continuously to keep the oils mixed with the liquids.

I have found the best bentonite clay for is from this brand, it mixes well and feels softer than the Nature's Choice one, I bought this clay from Clicks. It actually does react with ACV by for forming bubbles, it has a brown colour than a grey colour I think it's because it is a calcium bentonite clay.

  • equal parts bentonite clay and liquids(or whatever consistency you want)
  • one part ACV to two parts warm water
  • spoon of any career oil of choice(mostly grapeseed, provides slips)
  • and tea tree or lavender eo 3 drops each


To maximize my conditioning time I add this to my masque

  • a spoon of grapeseed oil 
  • and essential oils
  • honey sometimes

I also mix my protein treatment with my deep conditioner, this depends on how strong the protein treatment is.

My favourite or go to products are: none at the moment, I have been on a journey of trying out South African hair products and marking the ones that I like along the way, will update this when I believe I had reached my mark.
But so far conditioners from these brands are the ones I will go back to, Nilotiqa, Afro Botanics and Native Child.
These mixes work for my hair, they may or may not work for yours , it's a trial and error situation.

Thank you for reading, God bless...
