Tips to getting super soft natural hair(Part 2)

In this part two of the topic at hand, i will go straight to showing you a mixture for softening natural hair. Most of you know about it, it’s the Crisco you use in baking and frying your chicken.

Crisco contains fully hydrogenated cottonseed oil and partially hydrogenated soybean oil. This simply means that what used to be a liquid oil has gone through a chemical process and has solidified at room temperature.

This process makes the chemical structure of a liquid oil more like that of fats for making candles and soaps. You can use it alone on natural hair (and even skin) or used as a base for a homemade hair product mix.

When a Crisco mixed product is applied to wet natural hair, it smooths and conditions hair. You can use Crisco to seal moisture into hair after moisturizing.

It can also be used to give definition for a braid-out, twist-out or finger coil hairstyle. Not only will your hair have sheen and feel soft, but Crisco gives your mix a good amount of hold for stretching purposes. This is especially beneficial to ladies whose hair types shrinks up to 75% of their full length.

Getting this mixture right, your hair will thank you for it.

You should be cautious to maintain the soft texture acquired eg make sure you sleep with a satin cap on to trap in the moisture from the process also observe other practices that would ensure your hair remain healthy and well maintained eg GHE, clarifying the scalp, tea rinse, etc we shall be discussing them as we proceed in this series.
