Any one on a hair journey who cares about their hair knows the importance of deep conditioning. It keeps your hair strengthened, moisturized and able to resist breakage. We know that good conditioners can be expensive, but now you don’t have to spend a lot to get one. Maishanu will fix your hair twice as good for half the price.
Maishanu or ghee is clarified butter made from cow milk. You know those Fulani northern women you see with very long and silky hair? This is one of their secrets. Maishanu is actually an Hausa word which translates to ”cow oil/fat” in English. And as a matter of fact, it is usually gotten from Hausa cattle rearers or Hausa women who are market sellers.
It can also be cooked with meals and eaten but right now we’re only concerned about the benefits for hair. It’s a pretty inexpensive in relation to store bought deep conditioners and it packs a punch when it comes to the benefits it offers.
1. Used As A Prepoo Treatment, Maishanu Strengthens The Hair And Minimizes Shedding During Washing
2. Used As A Deep Conditioner, It Deeply Conditions And Moisturizes The Hair. Your Hair Will Be Unbelievably Soft Afterwards
To use, spread all over freshly washed hair. Cover with a shower cap and sit under a steamer or hooded dryer for 20 mins, or for 45 minutes without heat.
3. It’s An Excellent Detangler. Maishanu is Quite Oily, And All That Oil Provides A Lot Of Slip Which Detangles Your Hair Very Easily
So, if you’re looking for an inexpensive but effective deep conditioner, this is definitely worth the shot. We have to warn you though, it doesn’t smell nice. Yeah the smell is quite funky but a few drops of your favourite essential oil will mask the smell. Also a little goes a long way so be very mindful of the amounts you’re using.
If you’ll like to try maishanu, you can get it from the Hausa men or women that sell herbs in the market.
