TO ALL MY CURLIES OUT THERE 🌿
It’s important to make sure your deep conditioning your hair throughout the cold months since it’s more prone to getting dry. And when it’s dry (for me at least) it means more product used throughout the day + it’s way less manageable. Hydrate those curls! Here’s my GO-TO deep conditioning recipe for the winter months.
DRUG STORE PRODUCTS.
almond milk ultra-nourishing mask
jamaican castor oil leave-in conditioner
OIL ADD ONS.
+ extra virgin olive oil. must be EXTRA VIRGIN — helps retain moisture, prevents hair loss, promotes scalp health, improves hair strength.
+ extra virgin coconut oil. must be EXTRA VIRGIN — one of the few oils that can penetrate the hair shaft. softens the hair, conditions the scalp, lit for damaged hair since it strengthens it.
+ avocado oil. dope for dry hair, full of vitamin A, E, D + potassium.
+ jamaican black castor oil. moisturizes, thickens, strengthens, prevents hair breakage.
rose hair elixir. nourishes dry hair, split ends, tames frizzy hair, repairs damaged hair + adds shine.
WHATS THE PROCESS.
1. Put a tablespoon of Shea Moisture + Carols Daughter product, each.
2. Put a teaspoon of each of the oils.
3. Put 2 drops of rose hair elixir.
4. Mix it in. And put on your hair.
6. I do either of these after the conditioner is in my hair. One — put conditioning cap + let sit for 30 mins to an hour. Two — put a heating cap on for 30 mins. Three — use my q-redew steamer for 30 mins.
I have fine curly hair. That basically means, my hair isn’t super thick. When it dries it gets big but it’s easily weighed down by oils and prone to breakage. Because of this. I have to ease up on the oils so I don’t even put a full teaspoon of the Jamaican castor oil or the olive oil because those tend to be thicker + weigh my hair down more. You’re gonna get used to which oils work best for your hair + which don’t! Make this recipe yours 💃🏻 if you’re wondering how long the products last, I’ve had these oils for a year + a half now lol. So you won’t be breaking the bank, trust.
