The transition from winter to spring can be tough on curls. The changing weather and temperatures can make curls excessively dry. Dry curls are more prone to frizz and damage, which nobody has time for. Here's a recipe for the easiest DIY treatment for dry curls. Give it a try, and let us know what you think.
The Easiest DIY Treatment For Dry Curls
1 c mango butter
1 tablespoon organic coconut oil
2 tablespoons shea butter
1 tablespoon sweet almond oil
2 teaspoons jojoba oil
1 tablespoon Jamaican black castor oil
What to do:
Take both butters and measure them out. Break up into smaller chunks, and place into a heat safe bowl. Place the bowl in a pot with water on the stove top to create a double boiler effect.
Melt the butters over medium heat, but don't allow the butters to reach a boil. Once the butters have completely melted, remove from heat and allow to cool for several minutes. Use a hand mixer to whip the butters until soft and fluffy. One by one, add in the remaining ingredients, and blend until fully mixed. As a result, the mixture should have a thick, creamy consistency.
Scoop the ingredients out, and place into an air tight jar.
How to use:
Now that you've made your very own moisturizing treatment for your curls, it's time to use it. This butter makes a great addition to your LOC method, as it will coat curls to add in lost moisture, while keeping hydration from escaping.
This treatment can also be used as a deep conditioning treatment. Apply to freshly washed curls, and massage into the scalp. The castor oil will encourage blood flow to the scalp, helping growth. Pull the product throughout the curls, and cover with a cap. Sit under a steamer, or apply heat for added benefits.
