Curl Moisturizing Spray
A perfect balance of distilled water and aloe vera gel or juice will keep your curls, coils, or kinks refreshed and ready to take on the day! Add a few drops of peppermint oil or tea tree oil for soothing scalp therapy.
Shea Butter Styling Cream
A mixture of your favorite essential oils, carrier oils, and of course organic shea butter! You can use this for every kind of twist, braid, or knot style you can imagine! Whip everything in a bowl with an electric mixer, and allow to solidify over night. Make it as thick or thin as you want, according to your hair type.
Curl Defining-Frizz Fighting Gel
Want to do define your natural texture? Boil and strain flax seeds - they produce their own sticky gel. Add some coconut oil for shine, and you've got a curl definer with hold, so none of the crunchiness.
Whipped Coconut Oil Shine
For the days when you don't need the thick shea styling cream, whip coconut oil with a touch of aloe vera gel or juice for shine and softness. Works well if you have fine or thin hair—won't weigh your tresses down.
