This month’s DIY mix has been long anticipated.
We brought back an old favorite that everyone has been requesting.
Only the original CurlMixers from 2015 have seen this kind of product in a CurlMix.
Now, we are bringing it back because it just wouldn’t be the holiday season without it.
Our amazing hair growth hot oil treatment has arrived.
This Mix's featured ingredient has so many amazing benefits.
Pumpkin seed oil is a thick, rich, luxurious oil that is the star of our November CurlMix.
This holiday season, our subscribers will receive our Pumpkin Pie Hot Oil Treatment. This DIY hot oil treatment contains some of the highest quality ingredients on the market.
The Mix includes 5 amazing oils:
There are 5 oils in our hot oil treatment in total, and all of them are powerhouse ingredients that will make your hair stand out.
Stimulates hair growth, contains vitamin A, B6, & C. It also includes zinc, magnesium, and iron.

Is a powerful antioxidant that reduces breakage and damage while softening your skin and hair.
Is a light weight carrier oil that's easily absorbed into the strands for added shine.
Is like a natural frizz serum that adds immense shine to your results and promotes a healthy scalp to encourage hair growth.
I like to think of this month’s hot oil treatment as N'sync, you needed all 5 members of the group to throw a concert, but really, we only came to see Justin, J.C., and Lance.
Well, at least that’s my story lol.
Don't get me wrong, Sweet Almond Oil and Castor Oil are staples in everyone's DIY cabinet.
But the Pumpkin Seed, Vitamin E, and Argan Oil are definitely the stars of this Mix.
The Pumpkin Pie Hot Oil Treatment is just the kind of treatment you need for your self-care session during your holiday break.
Plus, winter is coming, so you know you are going to need another level of protection and restoration from the elements.
The best part about this mix is that it doesn’t need a preservative.
That means you can use it all winter long!
I spent 24 hours in the kitchen over the course of two days, developing easy DIY recipes, testing sections of my hair, and standing for the entire time.
I had no idea developing 6 recipes would take so much work.
What baffled me the most was that my “easy” recipes like a body butter and hot oil treatment weren’t supposed to take more than 10 or 15 minutes to perfect.
SPOILER ALERT: They didn’t take a few minutes, they took hours to find the perfect mixture of oils.
This month’s Pumpkin Pie Hot Oil Treatment was especially interesting because I had a few goals in mind.
The first couple batches of oil didn’t go so well.
At first, I added a bit too much Castor oil. The oil was too thick and sticky. Too much Castor means you’d spend a LONG time shampooing the oil out.
So I replaced the excess Castor for the Sweet Almond oil.
Sweet Almond oil is the lightest oil in this month’s mix. It easily absorbs into the strand and that’s important if you have low porosity hair (it takes forever for your hair to get wet).
It easily absorbs into the strand and that’s important if you have low porosity hair (it takes forever for your hair to get wet).
This means the molecules of the oil are small enough to seep into the tiny pores on your strands.
Then I tried a batch with, a new ingredient for me, Neem oil, as it has so many wonderful properties that improve the health of your hair.
Unfortunately, Neem oil does NOT smell very good, neither does Tea Tree oil.
The smell reminded me of “Smacks” cereal. I thought, who on earth wants to smell like a kids bowl of cereal…not me.
I knew I had to maintain our reputation for having delicious smelling products.
Keeping the Neem oil would have ruined that reputation.
So I removed the Neem oil and added more Pumpkin Seed oil.
Then I tried a batch with the perfect amount of Pumpkin Seed oil, Vitamin E, Argan Oil, Sweet Almond oil, and Castor oil.
It resulted in luxurious feeling, a delicious holiday scent, and when I tested it on my hair, it worked!
After standing for 12 hours, my knees hurt, my back ached, and my feet were cramping but...
I knew I had mixed magic and that my CurlMixers would love it.
There are only 50 new spots open on the list. If you get one, your deep conditioning routine is all set for the fall and winter season.
