Trial & Amazing... Pre-Condition/Wash/Conditioner

We've moved to!

Today, I tried a new regimen on my hair...and so far I like the results!! I tried the Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) rinse [TUTORIAL HERE] and a honey pre-condition!
**FYI: ACV doesn't smell as bad as I thought it would, and it does NOT linger in your hair! **

Benefits of Ingredients: (accumulated from research on forums and youtube vids):
  • Apple Cider Vinegar: The acid is naturally cleansing and is very similar to the natural oils in our hair, so it is very gentle.
  • Honey: Helps seal in moisture, and smells nice.
  • Carrot Oil: Helps fight breakage and split ends.
  • Tea Tree Oil: Cleansing and contains Vitamin E.
  • Coconut Oil: Moisturizer, adds sheen to hair.

Here's what I did:

Pre-Condition Products:
  • 2 tbsp of Honey
  • 4 tbsp of Coconut Oil
  • Spray Bottle
  • Shower Cap
  • Towel
Pre-Condition Application:
  1. I mixed the honey and the coconut oil in a small bowl. And put the towel in the dryer on High.
  2. I microwaved the mixed ingredients for 30 seconds (I recommend 15-20 seconds max).
  3. I then poured the melted contents into a spray bottle. I sprayed throughout my hair and then put on a plastic shower cap. Let it sit for 10 minutes.
  4. I then wrapped the, now hot, towel around my head and let it sit for another 15 minutes.

Wash/Shampoo Products:

  • Apple Cider Vinger
  • Applicaion Bottle
  • Taliah Waajid: Black Earth Shampoo

Wash/Shampoo Application:

  1. Poured 3oz. of ACV and 1 oz. of water into Application. Shake.
  2. Generously applied ACV Mix and massaged into scalp then rinse. Repeat twice.
  3. Shampooed with Taliah Waajid Shampoo, and rinsed.

  • Tea Tree Oil
  • Carrot Oil
  • Wide-tooth Comb

Conditioner Application:

  1. Applied the Taliah Waajid Conditioner and combed through my hair.

  3. Let sit at least 15 minutes. (I am letting it sit for an hour or so).
