    Hey peeps! I have a question:

    What is caramelization?
    How does it help?
    Do you buy this stuff or can you make it?
    If you can make it, does anybody have any recipes that aren't super hard?

    Thanks again ladies...:grin:

    It's a miracle in a blender. :lol:

    Sorry, I LOVE the stuff. I've used it twice so far, and it makes my hair SO shiny, and soft, and - amazing - really. I think that it'll be my only DC for a WHILE.

    My recipe was/is:

    which makes enough for two applications on my chin length natural hair.

    Here's my pictorial - let me know if you have any questions....

    What is this for? Would it help tame my frizzies. The front is a frizzy, wavy mess lately.

    I did it on loose hair. I suppose you could do it on twists, but I would be paranoid - that's a lot of sweet stuff, ya know? Though, with the babyfood, it's perfectly creamy so.... I dunno. It could totally work.

    It's a deep moisturizing treatment - I find it leaves my hair - very smooth and soft. I love it - and it STAYS feeling good for a while, too. :grin:

    Ooooh, that sounds YUMMY!!

    Urm, I have issues with drippies, so I usually only keep it in for - 2-3 hours? I think? I'm almost certain I've never slept in it - I would have been worried about my pillows - but I don't see any harm in doing so...

    Oh, I'm sorry the Cantu didn't agree with your hair! But I'm thrilled the Caramel treatment did!! :woot:
    The only thing I've used after a caramel treatment is just some Whipped pudding for my twists as a 'leave-in' - I've found that my normally super thirsty hair doesn't really NEED anything right afterwards...and as Long as I mist daily, I can coast through a week....

    Etae' has a caramel treatment
    It is meant as a pre-shampoo treatment on dry hair. Leave it on for an hr or more. The longer you leave it on the better the results
    Their ingredients are:
    honey
    olive oil
    bananas
    molasses
    cornstarch
    water
    vinegar
    wheat germ oil
