The DIY Coconut Curl Cream You Have To Try
Have you ever wondered what goes into you curl care products? Some of the products out there have ingredient lists that go on forever and are full of unpronounceable ingredients. We aren’t suggesting tossing out your curl routine products, but we do recommend taking a look at what’s being used and considering if there are other alternatives such as this DIY coconut curl cream.
This super easy curl cream is not only cheap to make, it only has three ingredients. While that doesn’t sound like a lot, the right amount, type, and quality of ingredients can make all the difference.
Aloe Vera gel is all natural, and is therefore less drying than non natural products. However it still provides excellent hold.
Coconut oil is a fabulous ingredient for helping curls grow in, stay healthy, as well as adds great shine. It helps to bring hydration back to over dry scalps.
Combined with the Shea butter you’ll create a product that is sure to keep your curls looking amazing and staying healthy.
- 2 tablespoons aloe vera gel
- 10-15 drops essential oil of your choosing
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons shea butter
What to do:
Add all the ingredients into a bowl and mix until completely blended. A hand blender can help with this.
You're on your way to making the DIY curl cream you have to try! Once you have a smooth mixture, you can apply it to damp curls. Start applying from the midshaft down. Use the prayer motion to make sure all curls get covered. As curls are getting covered you can also twist to help create and maintain shape. Allow curls to air dry or use a diffuser to speed up the process.
