What to do:
Warm 2-4 tablespoons of coconut oil (add or subtract amount based upon your curls) until fully melted but not boiling. Allow it to cool for several minutes. Wet curls and section into 4-6 even sections. Apply the coconut oil by massaging into the scalp. Also, make sure to pull the oil through to the ends. Cover with a plastic cap and allow to sit overnight. In the morning, wash out with warm water and gentle shampoo.
Place 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil in a pan. Heat until completely warmed and allow to cool for a couple of minutes. Wash curls with a gentle shampoo and massage the oil into the scalp. Pull through curls, and let sit for 5 minutes before rinsing with warm water. Follow with your favorite conditioner.
Find a ripe avocado, scoop, and mash the insides until smooth. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and mix until both ingredients are smooth and well blended. Apply to freshly washed curls from scalp to ends. Make sure to thoroughly cover all your strands. Leave on your hair for one hour before rinsing with cool water.
Take 1/2 cup of the gooseberry juice, and place into a bowl. Add 1/2 cup unflavored Greek yogurt and 2 tablespoons raw honey. Mix all ingredients together until completely blended.
