With all the buzz about natural hair products and their ingredients, I’ve decided to make my own. I figured I could add what I wanted, how I wanted it, and save a few coins along the way.

If you know me, then you know how much I love to save money girl.

Since my curls get a little thirsty, I knew that my DIY hair moisturizer had to be more of a heavier buttercream. Like any product you would buy off of the shelf, you need to know what works for you. If there is something you want to add or exclude, then feel free to do so. This is a total hair experiment. If it works, great! If it doesnt, just dust yourself off and try again.

If your curls are anything like mine then follow this moisturizing formula to the “T”.

Here is the recipe I used to add moisture back into my curls with some items I already had on hand. Give it a whirl yourself just to see if it works for you.
