The Caramel Treatment Reloaded – A Natural Conditioner For Softness And Shine


The Caramel Treatment Reloaded - A Natural Conditioner For Softness And ShineThere’s something about sequels, you either love ‘em or you hate ‘em. I’ve always preferred The Lord Of The Rings: Two Towers and I am a huge fan of The Bourne Supremacy and don’t get me started on the Twilight saga films, like Bella I was dying to be bitten by Edward 10 minutes into the second movie!

Maybe it’s the fact that the actors have settled more into their roles the second time around or maybe it’s because we are more invested in the characters when watching a sequel. Either way, we all troop into the cinema to take a peek at our old friends and see what they are up to.

A lot of us know and love the original caramel treatment which has helped many a natural head get over really bad hair days. If you have never tried it, why-ever not? It really does work at softening natural hair and leaves it very shiny too, not bad for something you can whip up in your kitchen!

I didn’t set off trying to re-make the caramel treatment, I was simply trying to find another use for the popular flaxseed gel recipe that has many natural girls declaring that they have given up commercial gels.

I noticed that in spite of it’s sliminess, the gel goes on like one of my favorite commercial conditioners, smoothing and softening as it goes. As a side note, some detangling conditioners actually contain seaweed as one of their main ingredients. Let’s hear it for natural ingredients whoop whoop!

Moving on, this recipe is essentially a coming together of these two all natural concoctions, each bringing something to the party that will leave your hair soft, moisturized, sealed and very shiny. It’s not exactly a replica of the caramel treatment with flaxseed gel thrown in, as you will see, but the final product is similar enough to deserve to be associated with the original recipe.

I started BlackHairInformation.com as a way to help both myself and other women of color achieve their dreams of long healthy hair. I have now achieved my goal length and I continue to bring new information about hair on both this website and my personal blog.

    Interesting. I use the flaxseed gel all the time and I know what you mean about how it slides on. I’ve never tried the caramel treatment. I will give this a try. Thanks.

    Would this work with aloe vera gel instead of flaxseed?

    Alma,

    After reading about your experience with the Caramel Treatment Reloaded, I want to try it.

    Do you have to use Treacle or could one use Unsulphured Molassess? Here is the U.S. that is all I am finding in my grocery stores. I have not gone to a Natural Food Store as of yet. JM

      Yes you can use standard molasses that you find in the store, it’s the same thing as treacle. I really love this treatment, nothing else gives my hair shine like that!
