If you've been thinking about what goes into your curl care products, or your impact on the environment, you're in the right place. Taking care of our planet, as well as thinking critically about what we use on our bodies is very important to many people. Therefore if you want more control, you could start making your own curly care products. By making your own, you're in charge of exactly what goes into your curls. Here's how you can make your own curly hair leave in conditioner. Give this easy recipe a try, and let us know if it works for you.
1/2 cup Shea butter
4 tablespoons coconut oil
1/2 cup aloe vera gel
10 drops favorite essential oils
1/4 cup water
Really, that's it! You probably already have most of these ingredients right in your kitchen or home. Remember, once of the great things about making your own products is the ability to customize the products for your hair's needs. Therefore, you can adjust the ingredients as necessary.
Mix the products together until everything is smooth. You may need to soften the Shea butter and coconut oil in the microwave or double boiler beforehand, but don't allow it to boil. Once everything is fully incorporated and mixed smoothly, you can place it in a jar or container with a tight lid. Store in a cool, dry place and apply as needed.
