Have you heard of the L.O.C Method or The Curly Girl Method?
How about the Max Hydration Method?
There are plenty of different natural hair care methods out here in Natural Hair Utopia. A quick Google search of “natural hair methods” will pull up enough to send you down a rabbit hole of natural hair care goodness for hours!
Many Goddesses have taken to YouTube to share their great, and in their words — not so great experiences and results.
I’ve used the L.O.C Method and recently started the Water Only Hair Wash Method (I’m on Day 6 as I type this). I’m LOVING IT so far! I’m committing to this method for the next month, and seeing how my hair responds.
I have a video coming about all of this soon so today, I have 3 questions for you!
- Have you ever tried any of the natural hair care methods out there?
- If so, what were your results?
- Will you be trying a new method?
Share your results/experience in the comments if you like. Hair care methods aren’t for everyone, but if there’s something that’s worked well for you (or something we should avoid…) let us know!
Today’s Activity – GO BANANA DEEP!
On the WOHW Method, I’m using fresh, new food and plant-based recipes that will help with total sebum coverage (a big deal in the WOHM).
This whole process has me feeling real Badu.
If you have some over ripe bananas, or baby food in your pantry, that’s all you need.
If you don’t, both are easy to find and super inexpensive!
Here are three different variations — all great for deep conditioning, moisturizing and detangling.
Banana Deep Conditioning Detangler
Naturally detangles hair, leaves hair shiny and well moisturized.
4 ripe bananas
optional – 1/2 tsp lemon juice (for freshness – to keep it from turning gunky) & 1 tablespoon raw agave syrup or molasses (to keep it easy to rinse out if needed).
The smoothie texture makes it rinse right out, but if your bananas are firm, it may be an issue.
- Blend on high for up to 1 minute in a high speed blender
- This recipe makes 16 ounces.
- Use within 7 days. Keep stored in your refrigerator
For a deeper condition:
Banana Deep Condish
4 bananas (or banana baby food)
1 to 2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon coconut milk
1 tablespoon coconut oil (coconut oil alternatives that are great in this recipe: avocado oil, shea nut oil, or safflower oil)
Don’t have time to make this today?
Buy 1 to 2 jars of banana baby food. The number of jars you need will depend on the length of your hair.
If you have extra, store it in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
- Stir bananas, apply to hair.
- Leave on your hair for 20 minutes to 1 hour.
- Place your hair in a baggy to heat up your deep condition.
- Rinse out completely, and style.
