It’s my last month of my college undergrad and I’m really excited, nervous and thrilled. I’ve been taking the time to do some things. Besides my homework, like making my own henna mixture. Now I just recently made my own leave-in hair conditioner. It was super easy and inspired me to make more things. Like, maybe,  a body lotion or something. I’ve tried in the past to try and make my own leave-in. It wasn’t a complete and utter fail. But, it didn’t come out as great as this one did. It was really hard and was difficult to work with.

When I made this mix. For my base, I used shea butter and coconut oil. I let it set out overnight to soften it up. The following day I mashed the two together. After breaking the larger pieces down, I took a saucepan and filled it with water and let it boil. When it started to boil I put the bowel over the top so it would allow the oils to melt without losing any of the beneficial properties that they both possess (meaning don’t nuke anything).

After melting them both down I let the mix set in the fridge until it solidified. I then added in castor oil, almond oil, honey, tea tree, and olive oil.  I used an old deep conditioner container that I washed out. If you’ve made your own beauty items before what were they? What ingredients did you use? How did it turn out?

I purchased all these items with my own money. But I have included links to all the products mentioned above.
