The SANDRINE BOX hair routine #4

Ambunu by Sahel Cosmétique also called "False Sesame" is a natural plant that comes straight from Chad.
It is suitable for all types of dry and dehydrated hair because its main action is to intensely hydrate your hair and facilitate detangling.
It is a natural cleansing and emollient plant that strengthens the hair, gives it shine and volume. Ambunu helps prevent scalp dryness and therefore reduces hair loss.
Ambunu contains saponins. Saponins have surfactant properties. They are therefore the ones that will allow the Ambunu leaves to foam when they come into contact with water. They thus make it possible to clean the scalp and the hair in depth without attacking them.
Directions for use: as a shampoo and conditioner.
Contrary to what is indicated on the packaging, here is what I advise you to have tested it on my curly hair 3B, fine:
Quick preparation 10 minutes:
- Use 2 tablespoons of Ambunu.
- Heat about 500ml of water in a saucepan or faster in a kettle. No need to boil it.
- Leave to stand and infuse for 10 minutes, you will see it smells of green tea.

The hot water will allow the leaves to activate and release its active ingredients.

Once you find the Sticky "Gooey" mixture as we say in English, it means that the preparation is good!
- Leave the preparation to cool.
- Use a pantyhose as a strainer or (a little trick) a milk bag to collect all the preparation and get rid of the leaves.
To note: The preparation can be used with the leaves but I prefer without to avoid putting it everywhere in the bathroom (lol).
Application:
Unlike classic natural shampoo, you can put it all over your head!
  • Section your hair in 2 or 4 then gently pour the mixture of water (lukewarm) + leaves or without the leaves on your hair.
  • Massage your scalp as usual.
  • Take the opportunity to detangle the hair with your fingers first, then use your detangling brush. Detangling is magic, in the blink of an eye your hair is detangled and hydrated at the same time.

Then 3 solutions are available to you:

  • Either you use a detangler again (not normally necessary)
  • Either you go directly to the styling stage: Nourishing Cream and Hair Gel.
  • I advise you to do a FINGER COILS to define your curls even more with your fingers.
  • Either you apply the Ambunu again without rinsing (you will bring more hydration) and apply your oil or gel to seal in the hydration.
  • And There you go!

Be careful not to abuse it. And yes, protein is good in small doses. A maintenance protein treatment once every 4 to 6 weeks is sufficient.

The proteins will fill the gaps in the hair fiber, strengthen, maintain its elasticity, fight against breakage and maintain the balance between hydration and protein (in the hair).

  • Spirulina: thanks to its exceptional nutrient content, it supports keratin synthesis, strengthens hair and accelerates hair growth.

Usage tips:

Fine hair: BEFORE shampooing (wet your hair before application).
Thick hair: AFTER shampooing.

  • Divide your hair into four sections.
  • Take a small dab of product and distribute it over the sections from root to tip.

  • Then rinse thoroughly.

    Magic Twist Nourishing Cream Les Secrets de Lolys.

    This butter-like cream will intensely nourish your hair. With its cocktail of soybean, macadamia and sweet almond oils, the Magic Twist has real softening nutritional power and will not leave a greasy finish.
    Be careful though for fine hair, you will have to use it sparingly.
     
    Directions for use: 1x per week only.

    • Either as a mask BEFORE your shampoo "it will act as an oil bath"
    • Either when washing, once a week when styling and on towel-dried hair.
    • Apply it on dry or damp hair: on the lengths only.
    • Seal with a Gel and that's it.

    • You can also perform the FINGER COILS at this time to better define your curls.
