Hair Product Hand Me Downs: Shea Butter with Lavender, Patchouli and Vanilla

Saturday, November 28, 2009

The benefits of hooking up with other natural hair nuts like myself are numerous.

     One of the best reasons is that you can pick up old products that they might not want anymore but that you are quite ready to bear with because you’re to poor to go out and try making your own purchases.

Hence my post today.

While in DC for my thanksgiving I picked up this nifty little pot of hair goodness.

The above product contains lavender essential oil, patchouli and vanilla.

     Lavender essential oil is great for normal, dry and oily hair, it also has anti- dandruff properties and helps against hair loss by encouraging hair regrowth.

Patchouli is great for its anti-dandruff properties.

     The thing about this product is that the lavender/ patchouli (it may even be the vanilla) smell is extremely strong and I’ve never known lavender in particular to have the ability to hurt my nostrils. I’m taking that as an indicator that there is a high concentration of that essential oil mixed in with the shea butter. Certainly, I’ve never smelled lavender/ patchouli (again, it may even be the vanilla) so strong in any other commercial product.

     The smell itself is on the hair hours later, which is a good thing because I always wanted my hair to have a unique scent and unfortunately my coconut oil hasn’t given me that lasting unique scent I was looking for. The smell is also a bad thing because the initial handling of the product is really strong on the nose.

Still, cheers to great hand me downs,
