I want to start my first post about 4 essential items for every curly hair girl has to have in order to maintain beautiful curls without breaking the bank. Before introducing those items I want to talk that I personally used all of them and I decided to share my journey of natural hair. So far, I have 4 weeks without adding any heat on my hair and the results of it are amazing. In a future post I will talk more about all that I am learning about my hair for those who are interested.
- coconut oil. Girl, if you don’t have this you are missing out. Coconut oil provides moisture for your hair, curly hair tends to be really dry and this will help you to maintain it with a healthy moisturize. You can use coconut oil to style your hair and to mix it with your conditioner to create a deep conditioner.In addition, coconut oil serves a lot of functions not only works amazing in curly hair you can use it for almost everything to your face to your body. I recommend that you try to find organic and unrefined coconut oil because this one will be more rich and better for your hair.
- Honey not only honey is sweet and delicious it also good for your hair. Honey is able to provide moisture and smoothes your hair because of this, honey is a great natural conditioner and moisturizer. Not only that, honey can provide hair growth and a healthier scalp. A way to use this golden gift from nature is to combine an equal amount of honey with the same amount of your conditioner and use your hands to evenly apply the mixture through your while damp. Finally, massage into your scalp and work from your roots to the tip of your hair. Wear a shower cap and let it sit for 30 minutes and then rinse with cold water.
- Olive oil Olive oil works wonders on my hair. Extra virgin oil will work best because it’s more pure and concentrated. Olive oil can be use as a hot treatment, mask and to deep condition your hair.
- mayonnaise I bet you have this one in your fridge am I right? the good thing about mayonnaise is that provides 3 things to your hair, protein, moisture and boost shine. You can use mayonnaise as a deep conditioner and combine it with your favorite oils to provide more moisture to your hair. Another way, to use it is to add this to your hair avoid the scalp and focus on your ends because your ends are the oldest part of your hair then were a shower cap and wait 15-30 then rinse it with your shampoo and keep your usually washing routine.
FYI my hair is really dry and damage from the heat but its thick. If you have a really greasy scalp try not use a crazy amount of the items that I already listed. So far, my hair feels moisture and shiny. I wash my hair once a week in order to my hair produce its natural oils Also, if you know about any inexpensive items that are good for natural hair please share it in the comments!
