    Can someone direct me to the link or share the ingredients. I've heard about it, but I can't find info on it.

    I use her Prepoo mix, which is amazing, but I would love to try this too.

    Thanks in advance

    I LOVVVEEE this leave-in. Here's the instructions:

    Capping Off Your Wash Routine with a Leave In: Step 3 on How to Get Moisture Drenched Hair

    The fourth step in the process where you have an opportunity to add moisture to your hair is during your leave in step.

    Ingredients:

      • ½ cup of aloe vera
      • 1-2 tablespoons of oil
      • 1 tablespoon of vegetable glycerin
      • 1-3 drops of rosemary essential oil (optional)
      • 1-3 drops of sage essential oil (optional)
      • 1-3 drops of basil essential oil (optional)
      • Liquid panthenol (optional)
    1. Mix all the ingredients together. You can even place them in a spray bottle. Spray the mixture on your freshly rinsed hair.
    2. Work the leave -in mixture into your hair from root to tip.
    3. Do not rinse out this mixture.

    4. Style your natural hair as usual.

    There you have it! This routine is one way to add moisture to your hair. I hope you can keep your hands out of your soft, moist, beautiful afro-textured hair!

    As I recall, there's almost no info on her site.. I got the leave in mix recipe by signing up for her email list. Maybe it's best to PM you.

    I plan to get some from snowdrift farm. I have ordered from them before--tons of fun stuff.
    I've never seen panthenol for sale at a brick and mortar store...


    Chicoro's leave in sounds awesome. I have her book--how did I miss this? (must re-read).:yep:

    Ingredients you will need:

    In a bowl mix

    · ½ cup of aloe vera juice or whole leaf aloe vera

    · 1-2 tablespoons of your favorite oil (wheat germ, olive, safflower, walnut etc)

    In a separate Bowl melt

    · Food grade coconut oil (1/4 cup)

    · Sit the bottle or jar in hot water- do not put in microwave or on the stove!
    Remember, everyone's hair has different needs. You may need more or less of this mixture. Or, your hair may not like this at all. None of these will irrevocably change your hair. Thus, you just need to wash out the mixture if your hair doesn't like it.

    1. Using your fingers, separate your hair into 4- 8 sections. If your hair is caked with hard product, rinse your hair first. Gently handle the first section. First, smooth the hair in a downward direction. You are just trying to make sure that all the hair is going in one direction. You don't need to completely detangle the hair at this point.

    2. Dip your hair in the bowl of aloe vera and oil or cup your hands in the mixture and transfer it to the section onto your hair. Work it through. Get the aloe vera/oil mix into your hair from root to tip. Make sure it is moist throughout the sectioned hair. If your hair is long enough, twist it and wrap it around like a bantu knot. If it is not, try to twist it and move it out the way. Repeat until you have done this to each section.

    3. You should have a head full of aloe vera mixed with oil twisted sections. Go back to the first twist you did. Undo it, pour the liquid coconut oil in your hand and work through the section. Re-twist it and repeat on whole head. Place a plastic shower cap on your head for 15-60 minutes. Your moisturizing pre-poo is complete!

    If you sign up at Chicoro's website, you can get on her mailing list for her hair information that she sends out.

    Thanks for this suggestion. I have powdered panthenol too but just didn't know how to use it.

    I have the book too and I was confused. I have signed up for the e-mails but haven't gotten around to reading them yet :look:. I better get on it.

    I think I really need the panthenol in order for this to be moisturizing, at least for me. Just plain aloe juice and oil isn't enough moisture for my hair.

    I'm getting my hair streaked next Saturday...maybe I should do the leave in and prepoo so my hair will be moisture drenched before I get anything done to it?

    Sounds tempting but I may have to wait until summer to use this since it contains glycerin.

    I forgot about the glycerin until reading these posts. The mix still works well.

    Although I might be getting glycerin from some of my personal add-ins (Salerm 21 B5 leave in, ApHogee Keratin & Green tea spray). I know the Salerm has Panthenol.

    Anyway, the aloe juice and EVOO really does a lot.
