Po' Man's Regimen#2: Moisturizing Leave-in Conditioner

A lot of women like the Carol's daughter,Abba,and Qhemet biologics leave-in's ,but for sistahs on a budget,I have an alternative.

*1 spray bottle, at least 20 oz. capacity
*1 part your favorite conditioner
*5 parts water(preferably distilled, but faucet does just fine;depending on where you live,lol)
*Shake up, and Voila!

Important Note(s):Make sure that the conditioner isn't a reconstructor,protein,or deep conditioner. This spray is designed for daily moisture,detangling,etc. You CANNOT use anything with protein in that nature, it will make the hair hard and cause the strands to snap.

My Way:

This is my homemade leave-in conditioner. I use 1 part of my favorite conditioner,below,and 5 parts water. I love the way this smells and so does everyone who comes into close proximity of me.

I don't add any type of oil to the mixture. If I want oil in my hair, I add it to my hair before or after spraying. The reason being, I like for my mixture to be uniform,not needing to be shaken before each use. However,I will add vegetable glycerin or honey every now and then.
