Do Yo Own: 10 in 1 Leave-in

  
Have you found a leave-in that tackles not one but all of your hair needs? If not I am going to get you set for life, with this 10 in 1 leave-in treatment made from aloe vera and pomegranate. This treatment will balance the ph of your hair and scalp, encourage moisture retention, promote growth, reduce itchiness, dandruff, scaling, scalp inflammation, reduce frizz, add shine and repair dry hair.
  The alkalizing properties of aloe vera incentivize the ph level of the scalp and hair. Hair that has a balanced ph (potential of hydrogen) is less vulnerable to lifted cuticles, fungi and bacteria. Thus ensuring less damage, dryness and the hair will have its natural vibrancy. Additionally, a balanced scalp will result in moisture retention and the promotion of hair growth. Due to the presence of amino acids in aloe vera the hair is strengthened, frizz reduced and a boost in luster. As for the pomegranate it strengthens the follicle, accelerates growth and helps combat dandruff. While rose hip oil helps with cell renewal and damage.

What you’ll need:
1 Aloe Vera leaf
1 Large pomegranate
1 cup of water
7 drops of rose hip oil (optional)
Mess Level: Minimal
1 Cut aloe vera open to assess the pulp of the plant and remove the clear substance.
2. Slice pomegranate in half and remove the seeds
3. Place both items into a blender with water and blend

4. Strain, removing debris and place in to fridge for 5 minutes.
5. Spray onto hair and scalp


Putting the leave-in into a spray bottle provides better control. A good idea is to make this the night prior for less hassle on wash day. The consistency will be that of a jelly-liquid so this can serve has a setting product for curly sets such as flexi rods, curlformers, bantu knots and perm rods. This portion will fill a 12oz bottle
