Out of the box curl care treatments to try today
Apple cider vinegar:
Take two cups of apple cider vinegar, and blend together with 10 drops of tea tree essential oil. Wash your curls thoroughly, and then use this mixture to rinse through your strands. Massage it into your scalp, and allow it to rinse through the rest of your hair. Then, rinse with cool water and follow with your favorite conditioner. This treatment will invigorate your scalp, reset your scalp's natural pH balance, and help encourage growth.
Curry leaves and coconut oil:
Take fresh curry leaves and combine it with coconut oil. Heat until boiling, and allow it to simmer for several minutes before removing it from the heat and allowing the mixture to cool. Remove the leaves, and apply the mixture throughout damp curls. Cover, and allow it to sit for up to an hour. You can wrap a warm towel around your head if you'd like to help open up your curl's cuticles. This treatment encourages growth, so you can use it more frequently if you'd like.
Castor oil and onion:
Now this one sounds a bit weird, but hear us out! It works! To help stimulate longer, thicker curl growth, consider creating this mixture. Onions can help foster collagen production, and the castor oil will strengthen her strands. Take 1/4 cup of Jamaican Black castor oil, and mix it with 1 blended onion. Combine the mixture, and apply it throughout your strands. Focus on massaging it directly into your scalp, and then pulling it through your strands. Allow it to sit for an hour.
