There are different hair textures and these all require specific kinds of products. My thick hair for example, does not do well with very light products. I refer to my hair as ‘wild tresses’ which need to be tamed. Fortunately for me, I am able to make great products that match my hair type appropriately. If you have thick manes, you can try this recipe and let me know how it works out for you. I am sure you would love it, the texture of the final product is just perfect, not too greasy, just perfect!
