Recipe of the Week 2
Sorry my lovely ladies, I have been behind with my recipes of the week. For today recipe of the week will be my hair grease mixture. Yes ladies, I said it HAIR GREASE!! No shame in my game lol.
This hair grease mixture contains Blue Magic Organics Super Sure Gro, Glover's Dandruff Control Medicine, and Tea Tree Oil.
The ingredients in the Blue Magic Organics Super Sure Gro is petrolatum, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, lanolin, butyrosperum parkii (Shea butter), buxus chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, camellia sinensis leaves (Japanese green tea), tacopheryl acetate, carthamus tinctorius (safflower) seed oil, aloe barbadensis leaf extract, Eugenia caryophyllus (clove) flower extract, cocos nucifera (coconut) extract, echinacea angustifolia extract, trigonella foenum-graecum seed extract, cola acuminata seed extract, lawsonia inernis (henna) extract, fragrance.
I know in the natural world, everyone say DO NOT use hair grease because of the petrolatum and that it clogs up pores. Now ladies lets be serious, we all know when our mothers did our hair that's exactly what she used. Even back then our hair was long, healthy and beautiful. Well for me, I can say that my hair was long, healthy and beautiful, my hair was down my back with no breakage. My mother used grease in my hair and she kept my sisters and I hair in braids. It wasn't until when we wanted to do our hair, experiment with color, and get relaxers more often was when our hair became unhealthy. So yes, I am going back to using it and honestly I have no problem with using it.
The Glover's Dandruff Control Medicine is something else my mother used to use in my sisters and I hair. It is used for the relief of itching and scaling of the scalp associated with dandruff. The directions on the box says shake well before using, for best results use at least twice a week or as directed by a doctor, and before shampooing your hair apply a small amount to the scalp in several areas, rub well wait 15 minutes to 1 hour and shampoo thoroughly. I never used it that way, just mixed in hair grease and apply to my scalp. When my scalp does feel itching, I will apply the hair grease mixture to my scalp and it does relief the itch but does come back in a few days.
Tea tree oil is good for many things and many natural ladies love to use it. Tea tree oil is natural and contains no chemicals. It helps fight bacteria, fungi, and viruses. Therefore helps with preventing dandruff. It prevents hair loss and promotes hair growth. It is able to unblock the hair follicles. Tea tree oil nourishes and moisturizes both the scalp and hair.
The thing about being natural is that everyone wants to use the same products as other naturals. Or they want their hair to grow as fast as someone else. But the thing is, you have to listen to your hair and do what it likes. Like I said using this grease mixture, I have no problem with it and I will be using it more during this protective style challenge.
