Even though the world is starting to open back up, that doesn't mean the era of DIY is even remotely close to ending. In fact, more and more people are starting to realize the benefits of crafting their own curl care products. If you'd like to jump on board with this DIY trend, you've come to the right place.
Making your own curl care products give you a lot of control. You can determine exactly what goes into your product, how many ingredients, or what you use. That way you know exactly what's going into your curls, and help ensure you're getting exactly what your hair needs. Here's how you can make your very own curl refreshing spray. Give this great DIY tutorial from blogger Curly Enchilada a try, and don't forget to let us know if you love it.
What you'll need:
A clean, empty spray bottle
1 cup filtered water
3 tablespoons of conditioner
2 tablespoons hair gel
12 drops of your favorite essential oils. You can use one, or blend a few for various benefits. Lavender, tea tree, and peppermint are all great for invigorating and refreshing your scalp. Rose water, chamomile, and sandlewood are also great for smoothing your strands.
1 tablespoon aloe vera or argan oil. This is great for those who have dry or frizzy strands that need some extra nurturing.
What to do:
Starting with the conditioner, add ingredients to the bottle one by one. Once all the ingredients are mixed together, you can shake the bottle to completely combine them. Make sure you shake enough so everything is blended. You might need to shake it up again later to mix the ingredients again. Then, store in a cool, dry place until you're ready to use it.
Congratulations! You've made your very own curl care product. To use, spritz throughout your strands whenever your curls are in need of a refresh. You can then scrunch your curls up to help them take their natural shape.
