Homemade Hair Goop

I just LOOOOVVVE Miss Jessie's Baby Buttercreme for Sierra's and Savannah's hair. It is a moisturizer and it works really well and smells good too....but it costs $32 for 8 oz. In December they have a 2 for the price of 1 deal making it $32 for 16 shipping ($16.35). Since we are trying to keep a tight budget so we can afford to travel to Ghana and complete this adoption, I decided to try a recipe I found that is supposed to be very similar to Miss Jessie's buttercreme and curly pudding (another product I have bought that defines curls).

So I spent just over $10 at Sally's and bought the ingredients. It made about 40 oz. of doesn't smell as good as Miss Jessie's, but so far I like how it is working on their hair...nice and soft and not brittle. If any of you with black children want to try it, let me know...I have plenty to share! :)

I would LOVE the recipe. Lillian's hair is so dry, poor girl!

I would love the recipe too. My little girl has curly hair and I'm having a hard time finding the right product. I've tried hair lotion (in the pink bottle). Most recently I've been trying Rusk leave in conditioner based on a recommendation from my sister in law's sister who is bi-racial and has hair a lot like Baylie's. But I love your daughter's hair in the picture and think that Baylie's hair would do that with the right product. It stretches down to her lips, but is so curly that it looks short. I especially have trouble with the back where it starts looking like she has dread locks. Sorry about the epistle, but I'm excited to try your product.
