Molasses Pre-Shampoo Treatment


2 Eggs

1/2 cup coconut/castor or olive oil

2 Tbsp molasses

Blend eggs, oil, molasses and vinegar together until the mixture is well mixed. It will appear frothy.

Apply to damp hair. You can use an applicator to get all your strands or scoop out the mixture little by little with your hands, ensure that all your hair is sufficiently doused with this.

Put hair under plastic cap or use saran wrap. Cover plastic wrap with an old cotton t-shirt to impart heat to hair. Let the mixture stay on your head for at least 2 hours.

Wash out with conditioner when you are finished.

    Hi Brenda,

    I just stumbled onto your site today and I’m very impressed w/ the length of your hair and the advice you give to others. I’m hoping you can help me. This may be a long post so here goes:

    I began to really take care of my hair some years back. Not sure how many but the hair care tips online truly helped me. Anyway, fast forward to the present. I haven’t been able to care for my hair for at least a few months. No shampoo, conditioner, hot oil treatment, not even combing or brushing. Nothing. Because of a medical condition, I can only wear a scarf over my head/hair. It is so matted and dry that I don’t know what to do. I’ll be having an operation in a few weeks and when I finish recuperating, I’ll be starting a hair regimine which I desparately need. But what would be the best way to detangle matted and dry hair? Should I wet it first then detangle w/ a detangling comb? Any advice will be appreciated. And please keep this website available. I can tell its a lifesaver. Peace.

    Thanx for responding but I’m now going thru a second operation. Even though your advice helped me, I still got a headache. My hair was worst than I even thought. Anyway, I found something that detangled REALLY MATTED hair. Biosilk Hair Therapy. It was amazing. I applied it on dry hair and finger combed it. The tangled knots slid right out.
