Product Update!!!


Okay...So a few posts back I posted about trying E'Tae Products. I ordered the Caramel because I got a great recommendation from a girl friend. It came in the mail and I did the treatment...I must say I'm VERY disapointed. I'm not disappointed with the results, I'm disapointed with the product and its cost. Here's why (and I'm not knocking the company at all...I'm just expressing how I feel)...

First off the products ingredients are: Honey, olive oil, bananas, molasses, corn starch, water, vinegar, and wheat germ oil. ALL natural...It gets a perfect 10 for that. BUT $15 for 8oz is reDONKulous. Why? Honestly, it's very similar to the honey/olive oil conditioner that I've posted. Use the same recipe and add some of the aforementioned ingredients, and there you go...SERIOUSLY...It's the same stuff...

I could have made significantly more of this myself at home for the same price. So with some research, I made my own and here's what I did:
Honey 1/2 cup
olive oil 1/4 cup
overripe bananas - 2
molasses 1/8 cup
acv -2 tsp.
Wheat germ oil - 2 tsps
Mash the heck out of the bananas until they look like pudding...You don't want chunks of banana in your hair, so get to mashing...OR get some banana baby food...more expensive, but you don't have to mash...Add the ingredents together and mix until well blended...Put the ingredients in a squirt bottle for ease of application. Part hair into 4 sections and apply. Cover hair with a plastic cap and sit under a heat cap for 30 minutes or so...Rinse well. You can proceed with either a co- wash, Apple Cider Vinegar rinse or sulfate free shampoo...
TAH freaking DAH!!!
Same dang on result...Seriously...
...and don't get me started on the Nutrient product...Got that too...It's mainly vinegar...Just do an Apple Cider Vinegar rinse and you're pretty much good to go...I'm shame I spent $10 on it...I was curious...::ree leaves with head hanging::

Gia, this is a deep conditioner...I'd only do it every other month or so...
