“Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined” Psalms 50:2
After 12 plus years of experience as a cosmetology licensed hairstylist with a focus on natural and healthy hair and body products I began a journey of creating my own health and beauty cosmetics at home. Some are derived from all natural sources, and others are botanical mixtures, while some are a mixture of great products I stumbled upon during the course of the cosmetology career. One thing all the products have in common however is, they all actually work and have been tried by fellow Hebrew Israelite peers as well as past clients.
The beauty recipe in this article is hair Detangler with all-natural, minimal chemicals. The recipe is, however, quite expensive, but there is also a less expensive concoction I will share at the bottom of this article, it is derived from a few products that can be purchased at a lower cost. The inexpensive version does have over-the-counter chemicals approved by the FDA in them.
How to mix:
In the boiler pot add 2 1/2 cups water and 1 cup flax seeds and turn the pot on a low simmer flame or number 3 on an electric stove. Next in the small pot mix shea butter and cocoa butter together and turn the flame to a low simmer until the oils are melted but be sure not to burn them. Then pour the pure grapeseed oil and the melted oils together into the medium stockpot, but do not turn the pot on. Stir the oils.
Now place the large mesh strainer over the medium stockpot, turn the flaxseed mixture flame off and then slowly pour a little of the flaxseed mixture into the mesh strainer and stir it so the slimy gel solution goes into the medium stockpot. Stir in the aloe vera gel, then the coconut cream. Remember, there should be no heat on the medium stock pot.
Once all the mixture has cooled down some, add the essential oil for fragrance, MAKE SURE IT DOES NOT CONTAIN ALCOHOL. Last step before bottling and storing, add a preservative if you would like to store your detangler on the shelf, otherwise make sure there is room in the refrigerator, it will spoil after 3 days because of the all-natural ingredient.
Use a funnel to bottle your detangler, then put the rest in freezer bags and label the bags with an expiration date of 3 months.
For those on a budget, here are some great detangling products that give the same great effect. But first and important disclaimer [I have studied the chemicals of skin, hair, and nails and have found they all consist of proteins and have the same PH levels, therefore, it is o.k. to use product for the skin on the hair, but, product made for hair is not o.k. on all skin types because of the pore’s absorption or lack thereof. However, I am not a doctor or dermatologist and if you have any issues with your skin, nails, or hair please consult with your dermatologist before use.]
