Happy 4th of July!
I hope you’re all Lavishly Celebrating the holiday.
Lavish and I are at Disneyland with the family. Here are 2 of my wonderful little ones Laila (4 yrs.) and Asia (6 yrs.). We’re in Tarzan’s Treehouse cooking up some awesome natural hair products in his high tech kitchen!
I put fresh braids in before the trip and braided/twisted the little ones’ hair. I made a homemade Xanthan Gum Conditioning Hair Jelly to take with us along with a natural organic cocoa butter pomade we used for our ends and skin. This jelly can also be used as a conditioner.
Did I say I love this stuff?
Xanthan Gum Conditioning Hair Jelly
1/4 tsp xanthan gum
1/4 tsp guar gum
1/4 tsp amla powder
3/4 cup purified water
1/4 cup aloe vera juice
1 tbsp coconut oil (or your hair’s favorite)
2 to 4 drops of Bergamot Essential Oil (or your Favorite)
Mix water, aloe vera juice, xanthan gum, and guar gum in mixing bowl or blender for 2 to 5 minutes. If you want your mix to be thicker, or have a more gel like consistency (but not a gel) use 1 tsp each of xanthan gum and guar gum. Add coconut oil and essentials.
