Moisturizing Cocktail for Curls: Reader Recommendations

Hope everyone’s ready to celebrate the 4th with a bang!

Until then, I have a new reader recommendation’s post for inquiring heads.

One BLACKSTRANDS reader, Angela, recommended a homemade moisturizer that sounds great for everyday (or as needed) use. After a salon visit with a natural hair stylist,  she picked up a few tips for creating her own moisturizing cocktail for at home upkeep.

check it out:

– 2 cups olive oil
– 2 cups water
– 1 cup vegetable glycerin
– 5 drops of essential oil (my favorites are lemongrass and lavender)
– pour all ingredients into a large spray bottle, shake, and spritz all over hair

* The stylist also told me that if I want a deep conditioner, mix this in with whatever conditioner I use in the shower.

Just a little helpful hair relief from the scorching heat out there!

:: Hope this helps ::

    Great post! This weekend, i’m going to clarify and follow up with a super deep DC. I’m going to add these products to my conditioner in hopes of making it more potent (lol) and i’ll see how they work. Wish me luck!
