If you are more of a visual learner watch the video below for a detailed demonstration on how you can make your own batch of the fabulous Kimmaytube Leave in conditioner.
Why does this recipe work?
It may seem counter intuitive to create a leave in conditioner from a leave in conditioner but Kimmaytube has successfully retained length and achieved her goal of waist length hair by consistently focusing on pH levels of products that she adds to her regimen.
Products with the proper slightly acidic pH will cause the hair cuticle to close and lock in moisturizer or water into your strands. The end result is that your hair will be softer and more flexible for longer which ultimately means that it will be less prone to breakage. If you have hair that never seems to hold on to moisture for more than a few hours, it may be worthwhile to try this recipe and see if it helps.
In addition to Aloe Vera Juice there are other acidifiers that can help you to maintain the proper PH in your hair. Examples include, lemon juice with a pH level of 2.0, Apple Cider Vinegar at 3.0 and lime juice at 2.0. I would be very careful with these however because even a bit too much lemon juice would make the entire mixture way too acidic.
To bring the acidifiers to the most appropriate level of 4.0 you would add in your favorite leave-in moisturizer and test the mixture to make sure you are at about 4.5 pH.
Weather you put much weight on her theory of focusing primarily on pH when picking hair products, there is no doubt that her concoction is truly magical for most of us adding much needed moisture to the most parched strands. And talk about shine, phew, with your cuticles slammed shut, you will be blinding people left right and center!
Have you tried the Kimmaytube Leave in? and if so what does your recipe look like?
