How To Use Mangoes In Your Curls
- 8 oz of mango butter
- 1 tablespoon organic coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons Jamaican Black Castor Oil
- 1 tablespoon jojoba oil
- .5 teaspoon of vitamin E oil
- 3-5 drops of essential oil of your choosing. We like peppermint, tea tree, or lavender
What to do:
Allow the mango butter to sit out until it softens to room temperature. Place into a mixing bowl, either a stand mixer or hand held. Begin blending the mango butter, and add in each ingredients one by one. Make sure to completely blend all the ingredients together before adding the next. Remember, you can add or remove ingredients based upon your curl's individual needs. If you have particularly thick or long curls, you might want to consider increasing the ingredients a bit to make sure you have enough.
How to use:
Congratulations! You've made your very own curl care product. This is particularly great because you are in control of exactly what's going into your curls. To use this product, you'll want to first wash and condition your curls. Squeeze the excess water out of your curls, and then apply the butter throughout. You can then use your favorite curl care product, if you'd like, or allow your curls to dry. This butter also works really well to use for protective styles, or to smooth down dry flyaways. When you're not using it, store it in the fridge in a sealed mason jar.
