Dr Miracle's Tingling Intensive Deep Conditioner

I have noticed that my hair care was lacking deep treatments. When I was younger and permed my entire school life I would get my hair steamed in between touch ups. Roll on to the natural hair me and I have surely slacked in this area. For the last few years I have only had a deep treatment once a year at the salon when my hair is being trimmed professionally. On a whim I bought a few treatments and so far have only tried one. I do not know why these treatment packs just do not come in a bottle or a jar. Would be so much cheaper than paying 99p or more per treatment.

The Dr Miracle's Tingling Intensive Deep Conditioning Treatment claims to help breakage and dry scalp. As you know I have suffered from breakage and I am slowly recovering. My breakage has slowed but still anything that says it will help breakage is a good thing so I hope. 

I left the treatment on for 30 minutes. It tingled as promised but the sensation was not annoying to me. Once rinsed out my hair felt really soft and well conditioned. My hair is often dry so this feeling was a welcome relief. I will definitely try this product again at some point. However if there is a jar or bottle equivalent or similar I would prefer that. 

It is clear to me I need to improve moisture levels in my hair. Still working on that moisture and seal. Surprisingly using products I have is working okay. Any good conditioning tips and moisture retention balance etc suggestions? I want to have at least 1 or 2 regular products to use for deep conditioning my hair.

Hair thoughts and support

I am considering joining Long Hair Care Forum. When I first went natural I joined many hair sites and began to follow many blogs. Except now I only really visit one forum, though always check out the bloggers and vloggers. Months and months ago someone tweeted to me that LHCF would be a nice place for me to be as anything I do with my natural hair would not be condemned. There is a natural hair website that to me is quite militant so I only really browse there these days. 

Now with LHCF there is a small fee. Which I do not mind paying as due to currency conversion is spare change. I was reading EbonyCprincess's blog which featured a lady who although relaxed has gone from neck length hair to mid back. When my hair was relaxed I only suffered breakage when I did stuff to it like bleach and dye. The areas of my hair now where I suffer breakage are new to me. I have no intention of relaxing my hair right now. Only because my scalp built up an indifference to relaxers. Nowadays my scalp just wants to be cleaned regularly as in once a weak where possible and the noo poo method is not a friend of my scalp. 

One thing I noted I do not get treatments as often as I feel I should. I have bought a few and will definitely share what my thoughts are on them. Income is low so although I would be tempted to buy products I need to use what I have and make it work for me. Except I will invest in some Jamaican Black Castor oil. I would like to improve moisture, growth and hairline. I love the moisture and seal method. My hairline has always been fragile it does not need any traction to break. It goes through a break and growth cycle. I could be wrong but I have never had to tempt it to grow back.

The Science of Black hair sounds like it would be a good read but at nearly £20 is a bit steep for me. I have just discovered it is on Kindle for just over £7 and wonders whether this type of book is best suited to hardcopy. Are there any other useful books out there?
