What Can I do With These Ingredients?

MintMint Posts: 1,143Registered Users Curl Neophyte
I have...
  • FOTE Aloe Vera gel (huge pump bottle)
  • Desert Essence Jojoba Oil
  • NOW Personal Care Shea Butter
  • Nutiva Coconut Oil (About 2 years old, not sure if it's still good)
Are there any leave-in/rinse out conditioner/DT recipes out there that use these ingredients? TIA

    I've tried oils as a DT on dry hair and it worked pretty well. I used my leftover desert essence jojoba oil and some sweet almond oil I had lying around.

    Apparantly you can make a quasi-[buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink] with 4oz aloe vera, 1 oz jojoba oil, and 1 oz glycerine. Here's a thread about it:

    Shea butter is good for dry skin.
    You can shave with FOTE.
    And, you could even make natural soap with your ingredients.

    there are a lot of things you can do with them. You can make a whipped shea butter with the shea and aloe gel, literally whip it, add some jojoba. You can make a hot DT with the shea, coconut, and jojoba.

    You can make a rinse, if you have any dried rosemary or sage in cabinet. You can also make a DT with yogurt, with any or all of your ing mixed together. Boil them all together, add some corn starch or conditioner, let sit in refrig for a couple hours and that will be a DT treatment.

    Add some honey to some of them and that will be a DT or rinse.
