A while ago I went on holiday and unfortunately discovered that the conditioner I had taken does not work for my hair.
I was away for two weeks in a country where products for natural black hair are not available; I desperately needed to condition my hair so I googled for simple, natural methods and was surprised to find that the ingredients in Neno Natural's Hair Growth Stimulator were mentioned as being good for conditioning hair and for hot oil treatments.
I washed my hair with water, sprayed Neno Natural's Hair Growth Stimulator on, put a shower cap over my head for a couple of hours, then I rinsed my head with cold water and plaited it.
I didn't add any moisturiser at all because my hair was already adequately oily. What you see me unplaiting here is the result of that hair conditioning session. I kept the plaits in for the duration of the flight back and for a couple of days when I got home.
Given the choice, I would rather mix essential oils with my conditioner but I am very happy with the results I achieved using just Neno Natural's Hair Growth Stimulator.
If you want to make your own oil use any one of the following as a base:
Then to that mixture add three or four of the following essential oils:
That's pretty much it! Enjoy.
The above said, note that this was a short-term solution and that this is not a "real conditioner" but something you can add to your routine. It is essentially a hot oil treatment. At the moment I do a hot oil treatment similar to this every other week before washing and conditioning my hair.
