NO COCONUT, CITRUS OR PALM OIL! 😉 I used an empty detangler bottle thoroughly rinsed clean.
Homemade Detangler: So far so good with using 2 tbsp witch hazel, 1 tbsp vitamin e oil and 2 tsp of vanilla extract. My hair isn’t tangled, feels silky smooth, easy to brush and no allergies yet. Mostly excited how the vitamin e oil seems to not be greasy and i guessed the right amount! 😉 Just hope my tree allergies don’t bother me with the witch hazel.
Ryal kept her hair short pretty much all her life. Her TWA suited her lifestyle and the maintenance was practically nonexistent. A good wash/DC or rinse, a little cocoa butter to seal the moisture in, and some aloe vera gel rubbed throughout and she was good to go.
After defeating the Collectors and turning herself in to the Alliance, she let it grow longer for the first time in her life that she could remember. Hair down her back would never suit her [nor would it happen, only up and out and she loved it] but she wanted to let it be.
By the time the Reapers attacked Earth, her tapered afro was the largest it’d ever been. She actually needed a comb for detangling and styling (just her fingers or a brush weren’t cutting it anymore).
After the conclusion of the Reaper Wars and another big chop during her recovery, she finally decided to wear it longer for good. Her curls, kinks, and coils grew to a point she could wear various styles other than finger coils and wash & gos. Twist outs, braid outs, and rod sets all became a part of her style routine.
Garrus learned more about her hair so he could assist her with styling in recovery and in general. He never got the hang of braiding, cornrows, or flexirod sets but finger coils, twists and flat twists he could do for her.
