BEAUTY: It's all about the Almondoco
A friend of mine recommended that I mix almond oil and coconut oil (1:1 ratio) and apply that to my hair at least one hour prior to washing. I was very skeptical as I have tried tons of salon brand deep conditioners, oils (including the ultra FOBy Dabur Amla), and even Ojon, but my hair always fought back with even more frizz post-treatment. I gave in, and bought the ingredients at my local Whole Foods store (also be sure to try your local Indian store).
I have to say, this mixture is a miracle! The combination of the proteins in the almond oil and the natural humectants in the coconut oil work wonders on dry hair. Additionally, the "almondoco" mixture also makes a great post-shower body moisturizer. Happy hair and skin conditioning!
