DIY Damaged Curl Repair Recipe
Are you worried your curls are damaged beyond repair? Sometimes we can be tough on our strands. However, you don't have to live with difficult to style curls. Here's a DIY damaged curl repair recipe that you can make right at home.
What you'll need:
- 2 tablespoons raw, organic honey
- 1 tablespoon virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon organic apple cider vinegar
Remember, you may need to increase the amount of ingredients needed if you have longer, thicker, or denser curls. Don't be afraid to experiment a bit to get it right.
What to do:
Get a small mixing bowl. Place all the ingredients into the bowl and use a metal whisk to beat them all together, making sure the mixture is completely smoothed out.
Before applying the mixture, gently detangle and separate your curls into 6-8 sections. Apply the mixture to your curls, paying the most attention to the mid shaft to the roots. All curls should be completely covered.
Allow the curl repair mask to sit on your curls. Cover with a plastic shower cap and apply heat if desired. This will make your cuticles open, thus allowing moisture to penetrate into the curl's shaft. Allow it to sit for at least an hour, because less time won't allow the mask to work fully.
Once the curl repair mask has sat for the allotted time, you can rinse it away with cool water. Cool water will help remove the product and close down your curl's cuticle. This keeps moisture locked into the cortex.
There are a lot of great DIY ways to care for your curls right at home. You don't always need to buy expensive products. In fact, sometimes homemade products work the best! Give this one a try and send us a messsage to let us know what you think.
