Are you in a bit of a curl care rut? Are you finding your curls feel dry or are frizzy? If so, it might be because your strands are lacking moisture. Curly hair needs a lot of extra moisture to stay hydrated. As a result, you need to help your strands out. This is especially important during the colder months of the year. The dry air of winter can really take a toll on your strands. Hydrate curls with this honey butter cream. Not only will it soothe dehydrated strands, it also helps revitalize distressed hair. The best part? It's super easy to make and customizable for your curl's needs.
Hydrate Curls With This Honey Butter Cream
What you'll need:
1/2 cup of melted shea butter
1/4 cup aloe vera gel
1/2 tablespoon of raw, organic honey
What to do:
This really couldn't be any easier! Soften the shea butter so it's easy to blend. However, you don't want to completely melt it. Place the ingredients together into a mixing bowl. Use a hand mixer to blend the ingredients until they are fully mixed, as well as light and fluffy. This will make it easier to apply to your curls.
If you choose, you can also add in essential oils to customize your cream. There are a variety of great choices. Some we like are peppermint, lavender, and chamomile. Rosemary, tea tree, and clary sage are great as well to help manage dryness, and restore luster to curls.
How to use it:
After you've completely mixed your curl cream, you'll need to store it correctly. Place into a sealable jar, such as a mason jar or an upcycled hair product jar that's been cleaned out. Keep in the fridge for extended life, or in a cool, dry place if you'll use it quickly. You may need to remix the product if the ingredients start to separate.
Apply throughout damp curls. Scrunch upwards to ensure all curls have been completely covered. Allow your strands to air dry, and enjoy frizz free strands!
