Healthy Hair Ingredient | DIY Products For Healthy Hair!

Flaxseed Gel

According to Sharifa Barnett, The 5 Hair Archetypes: Your Guide to Growing Long Haira kitchenista creates and modifies her own hair products. She uses herbs, oils, and food ingredients in her mixes. The benefits of being a kitchenista will reduce the amount of chemicals and commercial goods used and the ingredients are organic and/or natural.

I have had many ups and downs by being a kitchenista, but I thoroughly enjoy it.

If you are a kitchenista or thinking about becoming a kitchenista, this is what I suggest for less traffic at your home and to simplify your hair care needs:
Can Be Expensive and Time Consuming

The process of creating your products can be very messy, the products have a short shelf life, and you have to find the right balance of how the ingredients will react to each other and to your hair.

Clean Up After Yourself RIGHT THEN AND THERE
Don’t wait until the end of the process. You may get tired after you have completed your Wash Day or your mixture session. It is easier to work in stages.

Work In One Area
Create your mixtures before you wash or moisturize your hair. This way you do not need to go from the kitchen, to the bathroom, back to the kitchen, to your bedroom, and forgot you need something else from the kitchen.

Have A Designated Space For Your DIY Products
Whether you place your products in the refrigerator, the medicine cabinet, or on your shelves in your closet, pick 1-2 space(s) for your DIY products. For example, you may want your oils in the top cabinet of the kitchen and your cold DIY products in the refrigerator.

Whatever works for you, have fun being a kitchenista as you create your own DIY Products!

Here are some DIY recipes to try for yourself:

Natural hair says: being a kitchenista is fun and helps you learn more about your hair and what your hair needs. But please, find space for all of your potions. This is will make everyone happy.

Always Desire Your Natural,
