I’ve been using AfroVeda’s PUR Whipped Hair Jelly for sometime. Not until recently did I use it alone and take notice to the luvly reaction to my hair. I did a double take at the label and noticed there were only 6 ingredients, hmmm.
Of course, I wanted to try a remix by Tiff instead of buying more.
(You also need a blender – sorry that isn’t pictured above)
I couldn’t find the sweet almond oil at the regular grocery store, but it was at Fresh Market (some of you may have Whole Foods). I got it online at ebay, but it was actually cheaper at Fresh Market for the same quantity, argh! I also decided against the herbal oil complex, eh, hope it’s not too important.
I started out with:
- 6oz of Aloe Vera Gel
- 2oz of Coconut Oil
- 1oz of Sweet Almond Oil
I kept adding aloe to try and make it less runny consistency (I used the full bottle of Aloe Vera Gel plus more of what I had left in another jar, but I never added more oil)
Things were getting drastic, I was out of aloe and hungry…
I was tired of holding the dang button, so I rigged it. I dumped in a capful of the vanilla essential oil, added tape and a butter knife to keep the button down and went and made myself some breakfast.
After a good 7-10 minutes, the entire batch was creamy, thank goodness.
It does not smell as good as Afroveda’s but the texture feels and looks the same. I will have to let you know if it has the same effect on my hair, I will be trying that tonight (it's beau-tee-ful out now, I have to go!)
I think the trick here is more about allowing the blender to whip the oil and aloe together than the amount of aloe you dump in.
- 12oz aloe vera gel, whole bottle (little less than today)
- 2 oz coconut oil
- 1 oz sweet almond oil
- 1/2 tsp – 3/4 tsp of vanilla essential oil (lil more than today)
Of course, as always, thanks for stopping by Luvlies :)
