Fantastic Leave In Recipe (total accident!) !!

So, I was goofing around with my new oils and leftover conditioners and totally came up with an awesome leave in conditioner! I can't do the sprays (my dry/frizzy 3B hair doesn't like them), so this is pretty thick stuff. I put it in a 8oz pump bottle I got from the drugstore. Here's the recipe:

2Tbsp Filtered Water (I have a Brita pitcher, LOL)
6oz Suave Tropical Coconut Conditioner
3 Tbsp Jojoba Oil
2 Tbsp Pure Argan Oil
1 Tbsp Pure Coconut Oil
2 Drops Jasmine Absolute (EO) to scent

Mix, shake, and enjoy!! (I put this on my hair immediately after shampooing and conditioning)

I used Ouidad Curl Quencher Styling gel as a finishing product, and my curls are now frizz free, sooo soft, and the shine is incredible!!

If you try this out, let me know what you think...and if you think I can make it better!!

    Sounds awesome! I'll have to substitute for the Argan oil. Maybe sweet almond or grape seed. I will definitely be trying this out sometime in the next few days. So many recipes, so little time....

    Wow! That sounds great! I actually have pure argan oil so I want to try that. I'm going to substitute olive oil for the coconut and see how that goes. Thanks!
