Repair your hair while it’s styled, wahhh?
Just like us, sometimes our hair needs a bit of a break! My recent hair color changes and regular heat styling has my hair begging for a pause. I have been rocking the natural curls using this amazing Curl Cream that works as a hair treatment.
So, while my hair is bouncing around looking FAB, it is actually being repaired at the same time. Sound too good to be true? You have to try it out for yourself, I cannot stress this enough. TRY it out you WILL thank me for it!
All you need is Aloe Vera Gel, Coconut oil, and Shae Butter. All of these ingredients are power houses for healthy hair.
The vitamins and folic acid found in Aloe Vera Gel strengthen and repair hair strands. Make sure you grab the Aloe straight from the plant or the edible, 100% pure Aloe Vera gel for this curl cream. In this recipe, the Aloe Vera Gel gives the styling cream “hold.”
Coconut oil repairs hair strands from the inside out. The tiny molecules penetrate into your hair to bring it back to life. In this recipe, the coconut oil adds the moisture and shine.
Shae Butter is packed with rich, non-greasy moisture for your hair. It helps control frizz and adds body and shine to dull hair. In this recipe, the Shae butter will help define each curl!
For this recipe you will need:
- 1/3 cup of Shea Butter
- 1/3 cup of Coconut Oil
- 1/3 cup of Aloe Vera Gel
- OPTIONAL- Add a couple drops of your favourite essential oil, I’m using lavender.
- In a mixing bowl, combine Shae butter and Coconut oil until it is partially mixed. Whisk the mixture until it goes from yellow to white.
- Add the Aloe Vera Gel and whisk for another 5 minutes until the mixture is light and airy, kind of like whip cream.
- Pour it into a jar and store at room temp.
For fine hair, use less coconut oil and more Aloe Vera gel. I suggest testing this mixture with just 1 tbsp of each ingredient before making the entire batch. This will give you a better idea of what your hair needs!
This cream is also great for kids and makes an amazing hair-detangler. Let me know how it goes in the comments below!
