Today was wash day and I decided to use different products. Instead of washing and deep conditioning with my shea moisture products, I used some items in my kitchen. I used a baking soda and water mixture to wash my hair. I only applied it to my scalp and massaged my scalp. Then I did an apple cider vinegar rinse. My hair was squeaky clean, soft, and shiny. I made a coconut and banana deep conditioner. I really loved the smell. I applied that to the 6 sections of my hair and let it sit for about 45 minutes. The conditioner sort of formed a paste around my edges so I had to thoroughly rinse it out. I styled as usually but I did notice that detangling my hair was a lot easier. All in all I am very happy with the results!
