One of the best things about this treatment is that you either probably have the ingredients in your kitchen, or they're very easy to source otherwise. They're also pretty cheap, so this is something you'll be able to make on a budget, as well as make repeatedly as needed. Start with one tablespoon of olive oil, one tablespoon of honey, one large egg yolk, and one tablespoon of coconut oil. Yup, that's it.
What to do:
Gather your ingredients together and measure them out. Then, place the first three in a bowl together and mix until smooth. Melt the coconut oil if it's not already liquid. Once the oil is liquefied, allow it to cool just a bit, but don't let it become hard again. Mix it in with the first three ingredients, and whisk together until it's become completely smooth.
Then, take your DIY treatment and get in the shower. After you completely saturate your curls with warm water, you can squeeze out excess water. Apply the product throughout your strands, starting by massaging it into your scalp. Use your fingers to give your scalp a good rub all over, and then pull the product throughout your hair. Allow it to sit for 60 minutes, and then rinse out. You may need shampoo to get the oil out, and follow up with a conditioner or deep conditioner.
