Are you always on the hunt for the perfect conditioner, but never finding it? If so, you might want to considering making your own curl care products. When you DIY your curl care products, it puts you in control of what you're putting in your curls. Here's how to make your own rosemary mint conditioner. Slather this stuff on after you've shampooed your curls, and you're sure to love the results.
How To Make Your Own Rosemary Mint Conditioner
What you'll need:
1/4 cup of organic coconut oil
2 tablespoons Shea butter
2 teaspoons of Argan oil, or other lightweight carrier oil
10 drops rosemary essential oil
6-8 drops peppermint essential oils
What to do:
In a microwave safe bowl, melt together the coconut oil and Shea butter. Don't allow it to boil, but it should be melted enough to be able to blend the ingredients. Add in the Argan oil, mix, and then incorporate the essential oils. Continue blending until completely smooth. Once the mix is blended, transfer it to a squeeze bottle, or sealable container.
How to use it:
Congratulations! You've now made your very own curl care conditioner! The coconut oil and shea butter will help moisturize your strands, and keep your curls from becoming frizzy. The Argan oil will seal moisture in. Finally, your scalp will receive a revitalizing boost from the essential oils.
Wash your curls using your favorite cleansing shampoo, and then squeeze excess water from your strands. Then, squeeze a small amount of the conditioner into your palm, and rub it together to warm it up. Apply it throughout your strands, making sure to coat each strand. Allow the conditioner to sit for 5-10 minutes, so the heat from the shower will help it penetrate your strands. Finally, rinse it away with warm water, and close your cuticles with cold water.
