Restoring oil to fix damaged hair

In the old days hair color, products,
and treatments used to be harsh.
Therefore, they had hair-restorers that were more effective and less convenient than what we use today.
My wife's hair was badly damaged by
hairdresser malpractice, so I
went to the old books and looked up the old recipes. They had
hair restorers like the one below.
This is the most effective
hair-restorer you can make using ingredients
available today. Hairdressers repeatedly told my wife not to use any
home remedies and sold her expensive treatments. None of them worked
near as well as this recipe. The old timers had formulas even more
effective than this one, but you can't get the ingredients any more. I
bought all these ingredients at Safeway.
- 3 parts baby oil. I used Johnson & Johnson brand.
- 2 parts almond oil. Almond oil is common, but substitute another
tree nut oil if you can't get it.
- 1 part Glycerin based skin moisturizer. Read the list of
ingredients. If Glycerin is the first ingredient, you can use it. Pick
the scent that pleases you most.
Combine the ingredients immediately
before use. They do not mix and
separate almost as fast as you stir. Apply directly to the hair and
work it in. The idea is to get all the ingredients over all the hair,
even though they don't mix. Put on a shower cap and go to bed. Wash it
out with a mild shampoo (like baby shampoo) in the morning.
Quick method: Use it as a hot-oil
treatment instead of overnight. It
isn't quite as effective, but is a lot faster.
Bonus: Here is an old recipe for hair gel works
as good or better than anything you can buy:
Mix one teaspoon of unflavored
gelatin into one cup of hot water and refrigerate for a few hours.
