Cherry Lola Treatment – Frizz Reducer Fluke Concoction



For my 3A/4B hair types, I know that frizz and tangling is usually an issue. While surfing the internet for interesting home made concoctions, I ran across Cherry Lola. She has concocted this frizz reducer recipe. From the comments on her site, others have tried it ( tweaked it, replacing yogurt with conditioner) and received amazing results. You be the judge!!!!!

Recipe

Yogurt – 2 parts
For the protein and the conditioning properties.

Baking Soda 1/2 part
To make my hair more porous.

Amino Acids 1/2 part ( can be purchased from whole Foods & Vitamin Shoppe)
To see what they did.

I sectioned my hair into eight parts and applied the concoction with my fingers, making sure to coat from root to tip. As soon as I put the treatment on I could tell something was different. My roots! My roots started to clump together.

This has been my big “issue”; frizz – mostly at the roots. This treatment totally calmed the frizz down and made the roots behave the way the rest of my hair does. It has become curly from root to tip. I was floored by the results. I still am. I’ve done the treatment three times now over the course of a week and the results seem to just get better. I haven’t changed anything else in my regime and have been using Lustra Silk and my own handmade conditioner, or the Henna Wax Treatment, and co-washing every other day with Boots

Product Review Wednesday- Maxiglide



Maxi Glide Product Review

Describe your normal routine (i.e. how do you normally wear your hair, what products do you apply to your hair, and how would you normally straighten your hair?)

I normally wear my hair in a puff or twist out. I usually shampoo once a week. My shampoo right now is Dr. Bonner’s Peppermint Soap and I mix with Coconut Oil or Olive Oil. I do a an Aphogee protein treatment weekly and condition with Silk Elements. My leave in conditioner is Knot Today and I do a Coconut Cream Relaxer monthly. My styling products are Miss Jessie’s Buttercream, Curly Pudding, and my very own whipped shea butter.

How did you learn about the Maxi glide?

From Audra on DCSG. ( DC Sista Girls is a yahoo online sisterhood)

What were you likes/dislikes about the Maxi glide?

I love how is soft in makes my hair. I also like that I don’t have to excessive heat with the blow dryer, straightening comb, and flat iron to get my hair straight. The MaxiGlide does it all.

Would you recommend this product to others with relaxed, natural, or transitioned hair?

All.

Did you achieve the desired results using the maxi glide?

I did, my hair was soft and straight.

How long did your hair maintain the desired straightness?

One week. I probably could have gone longer, but I wash and condition every week.

Does the steam burst button really work?

It does. I was amazed at the wonders it worked on my ends.

How long does it take to heat up?

Between 1-2 minutes.

Did you use the maxi glide on damp hair or wet hair?

The first time I used in on wet hair (learned my lesson), since I’ve only used it on dry hair.

How comfortable is the feel of the irons?

The iron is comfortable. I used my entire hand, I haven’t been able to get the finger/thumb combination down.

Did you use you own personal products or the product that comes with the maxi glide?

I use my own products. I’ve (heard)good things about the MaxiGlide products may have to give them a try in the future.

What was the cost of the maxi glide and where did you purchase the maxi glide?

$70 from HSN (great price). I’ve paid $150 for a flat iron.
