Here’s another post for any of you do-it-yourself-ers! While styling gels are fine and have their purpose, I found myself leaning more toward creamier stylers. For a while I was using only conditioner for my wash and gos. Conditioner works fine and leaves my hair feeling soft, however it isn’t something that left me with lasting results. After a day or two I would need to restyle my hair or risk it tangling. This curling cream gives my hair a soft hold that lasts for a few days and helps keep moisture in my hair. Here is the recipe:
- 3/4 cup aloe vera gel
- 1/4 cup crisco
- 2 tbsps grapeseed oil
- 1 tbsp castor oil
Using a hand mixer is best for thorough whipping and a smooth consistency.
*For an extra moisturizing boost, you can add 1/4 cup of a moisturizing conditioner. Tresemme Naturals works excellent for me for this purpose.
Here is my day 3 hair styled w/this curling cream. It held up decently. After tomorrow, I will be washing and restyling.
This curling cream is inexpensive to make and it works well for me. I also don’t have issues with my hair feeling weighed down or greasy. This is a winner for me.
