Do you have "High Porosity Hair"??? This is what you've been waiting for!!
Hey love! I'm so excited to share this one with you! Dealing with your natural hair is trail and error. In the mist of these trails you can do a lot of damage to your natural hair. Most are not born with "High Porosity" hair but it develops over time. How? I thought you'd never ask!
Before you leave, don’t forget to click this link to watch me make my own Flaxseed Gel!
Over manipulation is our #1 enemy but we are enemy #2! We become product junkies as we try to learn what works best for our hair. Some damage to high porosity hair is irreversible but we can manage! With this gel, not only will you be able to repair damage but you can prevent more damage from developing in the future. Let's get started!
Let's talk about our ingredients.
Myrrh Resin: Myrrh is a natural gum/resin extracted from a number of small, thorny tree species of the genus Commiphora. Myrrh resin has been used throughout history as a perfume, incense, and medicine. Myrrh mixed with wine can also be ingested. Wikipedia
When used in the hair, myrrh essential oil's astringency strengthens the roots and reduces hair loss while helping to repair any damaged hair follicles. Along with addressing dandruff, its scent also stimulates the brain, promotes alertness, and boosts energy. If used in a massage, this oil strengthens the muscles and smooths the skin while promoting relaxation. Myrrh was one of the main ingredients Egyptians used during the embalming process! Myrrh was used to slow down the decaying process drastically! They couldn't work without it! So think about it, if this resin is powerful enough to slow down decomposition in the human body what do you think i could do for a damaged cuticle? Now this is only one of the many things Myrrh can do!
Avocado Seed (Ground)
If you have extremely high porosity hair your hair may be lacking elasticity which is very scary! Most likely when your hair is wet it is extremely easy for your strands to snap. That is because your hair has lost it's natural elasticity. That is why things like rice water etc work because your hair is so weak that any type of protein feels amazing even if its bad for you, its only a temporary fix. Avocado seed has been scientifically proven to shrink cancer cells and so much more so what do you think it can do for your damaged cuticle and hair follicles?
I love avocado seed so much, It makes your tresses more elastic while giving amazing shine if the water balance is regulated. For a deep conditioner for medium length hair you'll need to make the avocado seed into a powder! So let's get started on this dream for my High Porosity Doll's!!
Low Porosity hair, this will not cause damage at all. This will alert you cuticle to begin to heal from whatever is causing it to remain closed. If you have natural low porosity hair then this will help you teach your hair memory so you can begin the process opening the cuticle. There is a Recipe coming for you next so stay tuned!
1 tsp Crushed Myrrh Resin
1 tsp Crushed Avocado Seed
1/2 cup Whole Flax seeds
4 cups Water
1 tbs Vitamin E Oil
1 tsp Organic Myrrh Oil
1 Stainless Steal Pot
Mason Jar for storage
Bring the water to a boil.
Add Myrrh, Avocado Seed and Flax Seed
Boil for about 10-15 minutes. (Do not walk away)
Continue to check for your desired constancy. Do not leave this pot on the stove over 15 minutes. This gel will thicken as it cools. if you allow it too boil too long the gel will not strain through the cap.
Remove pot from stove and allow to cool for no longer that one hour. If it cools too long it will be very hair to separate the seeds from the gel.
Once the Gel is cool to touch pour the gel inside the stocking cap and squeeze out the gel carefully. Take your time, if you puncture the cap you will have to start over (the straining process). Trust me i know.
Once all the seeds are separated, add your remaining ingredients and mix well with a wooden or stainless steel spoon. Pour your gel into your mason jars and store in your refrigerator for up to two weeks. This can be used on all your natural styles and when you wash it out you will be amazed at how beautiful your curls are! I can't wait to hear/see your results!
