Sometimes your curls just need a little extra tender loving care. We do a lot to our curls and because of this, there are times they need a bit more. The environment, chemicals, and other factors can contribute to damaged strands. Here's a great overnight curl deep conditioning treatment you can make in your kitchen.
This treatment will leave your curls shiny, healthy, and help manage frizz! While there are a lot of treatments on the market, homemade often works best, as you can control what goes into the product. First of all, the castor oil will help minimize curl fall, therefore making your hair appear healthier and fuller. Coconut milk will make curls smoother, and help manage frizz. Finally, the rosemary oil will help stimulate your scalp to encourage more hair to grow.
Overnight Curl Deep Conditioning Treatment
- 1/3 cup Jamaican black castor oil
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 10-12 drops rosemary essential oil
What to do:
In a medium sized bowl, add the castor oil and coconut milk. Whisk together until all the ingredients are mixed smoothly. Add in the rosemary essential oil and continue mixing so everything is evenly blended. If the mix is not well blended, keep mixing until it is. If the ingredients separate, the treatment may not work correctly because of the unblended oils.
How to use:
Section curls into several sections, so your hair is manageable depending on how much hair you have. The thicker the hair, the more sections needed. Going section by section, apply the treatment directly to your strands. Each strands should be covered. Once all your curls are covered, gather your strands into a high bun and tie into place. Cover with a plastic shower cap, wrap your head in a towel and sleep with the treatment in your hair overnight. In the morning, rinse out with a gentle cleansing shampoo. Follow up with a rinse out conditioner.
