Salvaging old products

hypnotichypnotic Posts: 613Registered Users
So I have had this CD healthy hair butter in my fridge for quite a while...assuming it's still even good I decided to mix it up with aloe and some apricot kernel and coconut oil...

Hmm I sort of over did it with the aloe and added more oil because it was coming apart. Needless to say I already hate CD HHB, I find it to be too heavy.

I will try this concoction out this weekend if I don't get my Qhemet stuff.

Any others ways you go about stretching or adding new life to a mediocre product?

    i'm not sure that adding oils would help in making the product less heavy. sounds like CD HHB is a perfect candidate for a deep conditioner now that you've added the oils!

    how did the concoction work for you?
