e check out this video on how to make the Kimmaytube Leave-in. For you all who wondering who and what the heck is a Kimmaytube..she is a Youtuber who came up with this recipe and was the 1st to make a video on how to make it(she has since taken the video down..but the recipe is still on her channel) She also made a few videos discussing PH and how it applies to our hair. She has retained incredible length and has documented her progression also with videos. Check her out if you have not already. I also want to reiterate how pleased I am with the results of the Unrefined Red Palm Oil. My goal is to find natural products that work with my hair but will not break my pocketbook! Natural hair is BIG business. Everybody is trying to profit off our quest to learn how to manage our coily/kinky hair! I would rather to stick to homemade as much as possible and I also..know all those products really aren't necessary. So again..please check out the video(I hope the link works)but if it doesn't..it is made by a Youtuber VeeCharles..

Can't wait to try this one. My coconut oil only lasts a day.

FYI-I've eaten with it in Africa, but red palm oil is one of the unhealthiest forms of oil to consume, so limit or avoid it in foods if you can.

Sounds promising! From what I've read cooking and eating palm oil has lots of great health benefits as well. However, I'm wondering what kinds of affect the red stain has on blond colored hair? Anyone else had any experience in using this product?

May the sweet smell of "Scentsy" be with you always!

Hello my fellow Nappy Divas!! I have some GREAT NEWS to share about my experience with Unrefined Red Palm oil..I think I have found the answer to end dryness with my fine, kinky/coily hair. I know a few of you may have already heard about Unrefined Red Palm oil and how it stains your clothes but the benefits outweigh that one down side to using this oil. I put this oil on dry hair and let it stay on for 1 hour under a plastic cap. I did not shampoo my hair before hand either. I was 'experimenting'..I had just taken out cornrows that been in a week and my hair was bone dry. After a hour..I applied mashed avocado and banana on top of the oil. I let this stay on 1 hour under a plastic cap. By this time I was ready to rinse..the oil was continuing to drip and I was getting irritated having to keep wiping my face. I rinsed the oil..avocado & banana out with warm water. It rinsed out fairly easy with the a/b mixture being on top of the oil. My hair felt so soft and I am talking softer than I can EVER remember it feeling. After the rinse..I applied the Kimmaytube Leave-in Recipe(Knot-today, aloe vera gel, castor oil, jojoba oil) and re-cornrowed my hair.(I am protective styling under a wig until summer) My hair stayed moisturized ALL WEEK! I didn't apply any water, oil, cream, glycerin..not a thing to my hair for that whole week and my hair was still moisturized and NOT GREASY. I HAD to share this experience because I think alot of Nappy Divas can relate to being frustrated about keeping kinky hair moisturized..I mean no one wants to touch oil slathered hair everyday. I want my hair to be healthy, look good and not feel greasy. For those who give this a try..please give a response on how you like the results. I found my Unrefined Red Palm oil at a African shop and just purchased a larger 36oz bottle for $5.89 at a Mediterranean store.
