Moisture Mix

8 Feb

So I currently have medium sized, MBL box braids and their so fun to have. The creative styles are endless but under they faux hair lies   my hair that I still have to take care of if i want to retain length. How I take care of my hair with box braids is really short and simple to do all you need is a empty spray bottle that you can put olive oil, shea butter, leave-in and water in. These four ingredients is the reason why my hair is so moisturized and smells amazing (LOL). A good thing about including the shea butter is that it makes my faux and real hair have shine which is hard to keep after having braids for about one month. I’ve had my hair braid since January 1 2013 and I can say now on February  8 2013 I have a little over an inch of new hair growth!!!!!!!!!!!! I can recommend this mix to anyone who wants to moisturize their hair in protective styles or moisturize their hair with something regularly that smells good and keep hair manageable.

Moisture mix:

30% water

40% olive oil

20% shea butter

10% leave in

Try it its certainly worth it! Tell me if this mix work well for you and/or if you have another Moisture Mix you would like to tell me about?
