Re: **2014 Ceramides Challenge**

I want to pick up some GSO on Friday when I go grocery shopping so I can start adding it to my prepoo/seal regimen again.

2. Use a ceramide containing product at least once a week; once per session if you are really looking to reap the benefits of ceramides (session = m/s, DC'ing, pre-pooing, etc). Will use grapeseed oil once a week as an oil rinse

3. Check in and let us know how its going for you. Share your ceramide-rich products with us as you use them. We can inspire those who aren't using ceramides to finally use that leave-in all the way in the back of their stash because of the ceramide benefit.: Lately I have been loving grapeseed oil

a. What ceramide oil(s)/product(s) did you use? Grapeseed oil
b. How did you use it? (pre-poo, poo, DC, leave-in, sealing etc):leave in
c. What benefits are you experiencing by including ceramides into your regi? Shine? Softness? Manageability? I have experienced softness and manageability.

4. Share your reviews on products you have tried, as well as any ceramide info you may stumble upon.: Will share more reviews in the future.

Hey all you reformed PJ ladies!! :wave:
Web site that sells custom mix-n-match hair butters and oils???

I haven't joined the challenge but am a frequent lurker. Wanted to come out of hiding to ask this question.

Came across this site a few months ago and now trying to find it. Anyone seen this?? You can choose from all diff kinds and order them custom mixed with your own choice of oil and butter

I LOVE this HHJ!!

My hair seemed to really like my haphazard use of ceramides, so I figured I would step my game up for 2014.

a. What ceramide oil(s)/product(s) did you use? As I'm attempting a NoBuy for 2014, I will be adding ceramide oils to all of my products prior to applying them to my hair. My primary ceramide oils are GSO, SaFO, and WGO. When I run out of either, I really want to try HSO and SFO :yep:

b. How did you use it? I use ceramides for: Sealing, Prepoo, Cowash, Leave In, Moisturizer and Ayurvedic Treatments (I'm really loving GSO mixed in my henna)

c. What benefits are you experiencing by including ceramides into your regi? I *think* my hair has gotten shinier (like an internal shine that additional products only enhance), more manageable, smoother, and stronger. Yay!


I read about eucalyptus oil increasing natural ceramide production when applied to the scalp so I've added it to my homemade scalp balm and intend to update you guys on my little experiment. :grin:
