Diva Smooth Ingredients

Hey bloggers!!!!
Okay, i was surfing the web and came across this website that sells an alternative to chemically straightening your hair. Well I thought it was to good to be true so I looked around a little and found a forum that had a thread about it. Well the girls were saying how if the site won't give the list of ingredients then it is not a good product. Well I found a list on the site, but it's really just a list of natural ingredients. I haven't found anything about what is put into the product that makes the hair straighter. I'm still a little skeptical about Diva Smooth because of that, so that is why I don't think I want to buy; at least not until I can find a few people who have used this kit and had GREAT results with it because I do not want my hair to start falling out or anything. So instead I think I will buy a few of the ingredients and mix them up myself. I'll probably use the mix as a pre-poo or combine them with my conditioners and use it as a deep conditioning treatment. I know it won't make my hair straight, and that's not my intention, but it will benefit my hair in some type of way because all the ingredients are natural.

So here is the exact list of ingredients found on the site including the pictures.

Aloe Vera - Organic - Used medicinally for over 3,000 years. A rich emollient known to promote healing

Grapeseed Oil- Organic - Grapeseed oil is rich in flavonoids, phytochemicals that have antioxidant properties some consider even greater than vitamin C and vitamin E.

Glycerin Extract
- Glycerin is a humectant, drawing moisture to hair, allowing it to remain hydrated and soft.

Honey - Adds shine and moisture to hair and helps prevent breakage.

Olive oil - Organic - Obtained from ripe olives grown around the Mediterranean. Contains protein, minerals and vitamins.

Palm Oil - Organic - Palm oil gives hair its natural strength and radiance.

Jojoba Oil - Organic - The molecular structure of jojoba is very similar to the natural oil that is produced by the sebaceous glands in the scalp known as sebum. It is a well-known fact that sebum is required in maintaining healthy supple hair. Hair that has a good moisture basis tends to be more resistant to daily damage, tangles, dryness and split ends. Jojoba oil comes from the jojoba plant.

Lemon Juice - Antibacterial, astringent, promotes new cell generation, regulates sebum production.

Lemon Extract
- Antibacterial, astringent, promotes new cell generation, regulates sebum production.

- Helps restore damaged hair.

blend of essential oils
- trade secret blend of essential oils.

Peppermint Essential Oil Blend - Great for stimulating the scalp.

Rose Petals extract - promotes regeneration of skin cells. Pure, fresh scent (no synthetic fragrances)

Rosemary Extract - A very effective natural preservative that is high in antioxidants

Shea Butter - Used in Africa for centuries, this nutrient rich butter is high in fatty acids. It contains unique properties that aid in the relief of dry scalp and in restoring luster to hair.

Sucrose - Sugar extracted from sugar cane and sugar beets.

Tea Tree Essential Oil - Grown in the islands of the south Pacific and Australia, Tea Tee Oil helps unblock clogged hair follicles and moisturize the hair.

Vegetable Gum Virgin Coconut Oil - Organic - Reduces the protein loss for both undamaged and damaged hair. Coconut oil, being a triglyceride of lauric acid (principal fatty acid), has a high affinity for hair proteins and, because of its low molecular weight and straight linear chain, is able to penetrate inside the hair shaft.

Vitamin E improves circulation to the scalp. It improves health and growth of hair.

Vinegar - Lauded as a beauty powerhouse. It is derived from apple cider and has traditionally been used to make hair silky and lustrous.

Zea Mays Starch - aka Cornstarch - helps lift dirt, excessive oil and grease from hair. Helps maintain oil balance.

Update- Braids

Hey beauties!!!

Sorry for not giving an update on my hair lately. Well right now I have braids in. I got them done on Saturday January 3, 2009, and I really like them. Well its only been 2 weeks and the parts are already disappearing, which is making me really happy because that means my hair is growing. Hopefully by the time I take these out next month, my hair grew almost 2 inches because right now I'm 11 weeks and 4 days post relaxer and next month with make it about 4 months without a relaxer. I remember reading that hair grows about 1/2 an inch every month.

I'm writing this entry on my phone so I will add pictures of my hair later.
